    Dunno if anyone has tried this yet, but..

    I've had a WWI Titanium Starscream sitting around for awhile that I've wanted to turn into Skywarp (just like everyone, right?), but the damn little iddy-biddy guns on his wings just made me sick:

    So I grabbed that Victory Leo/Saber 2 pack from Family Dollar a few weeks ago to slice up for something else, but saw the cannons on Leo and dun dun dun -

    You just need to dremel (or slice with an exacto/razor if you must) the ends to slide over the old nubs - I threw some epoxy and some putty in to fill the gaps, sanded it some, and boom. Maybe too long, I may trim this down, but it's a pretty damn good fit, and the red on the cannons matches up on Starscreams too if you were so inclined to leave it unpainted.

    You can set the placement to the "top" too, although I chose a sideways with the cannons, I think either way would look look pretty cool.

    Thanks yet again Family Dollar ;)

    Cool mod, I was also thinking why the lasers were so short. I originally though they could be pulled out…but nope, stubby guns.

    Yeah I thought they came out too before I got it. I'd thought I'd seen pics of him with longer barrels, it was pretty cheese he didn't.

    His guns do look pretty short, it will be interesting to see how the figure looks when your modifications are done.
