    Ah, Arcee. I had some fun with this one.

    First off, I had to do something about the wheel situation. So, I popped off the front wheel, separated it with some heat and an xacto knife, and got to work.

    I split up the front tire and shaved down some of the internals. They fit perfectly on the leg tires with some trimming. Still transforms. Just pop off the tire halves, put them together, put them on the front wheel hub, and slide it back into place.

    The other mod I did was inspired by some of the other work I've seen done, but I don't think anyone else has done this. I replaced the hinges on Arcee's bike mode with ball joints for very repositionable wings. I also hollowed out the supporting plastic between the wing bits.

    Paint wise, lotta blue on the hands, tires, legs, and accents. Pink over the Hasbro silver. Aluminum, steel, and chrome accents.

    All in all, really proud of how she turned out.

    Nice way of getting rid if the big-wheel-on-back problem. The colors are also great.
    But the eys are kind of creepy =P.
