    i got 2 sidearms since battle in space rodimus will be my hot rod and classics will be my rodimus prime. i cut the grey pegs off both of them, i filed down the big peg on the back of the head to fit hot rods hand. the other sidearm i just left the black peg alone for rodimus and his "rollar" i drilled a hole to mount him on top of the protector armor.

    not with Cyclonus but the Hot Rods left arm in my set keeps popping out of its balljoint socket. makes transformation a little annoying.

    Why could you cut the smaller peg? Hot Rod is the one that's supposed to have a Targetmaster, not Rodimus Prime. You did it backwards.

    I said you did it backwards because you cut off the peg that Hot Rod uses to hold it and left the thick one for Rodimus, even though Rodimus isn't supposed to have a Targetmaster, it's Hot Rod. But I see that you have two, and it sort of looks like they're holding it from the same peg? Or did you just cut different pegs off each to both figures could have the Targetmaster and hold it?

    yeah they're holding it from the same peg, i just shaved down the peg on the one so it would fit in hot rods hand. I know Rodimus didnt have a Targetmaster but his "Rollar" looks naked without it mounted on top.....and he mans the battle station

    Yep, my BIS Rodimus has the same problem on his left arm. My cyclonus is perfect however in terms of joints and such.
