    So today while fiddling with Wheelie,
    I noticed a mod that's quick and easy.
    To adjust the fact that he is tall,
    I changed his legs to make him small!

    Its a simple trick with the transformation
    and it doesn't look like he has constipation.
    All you do is leave his legs
    its fairly solid, though uses no pegs!

    When making him go from car to robot
    extend his legs you do not.
    Then flip out the feet, you're almost done
    Soon this Wheelie will be number 1!

    Actually thats it! He's set to go!
    To make a proper Wheelie you're in the know!




    Now to make this rhyme was a pain in the ass
    and this compromised the helpfulness making these instructions poor class.
    So to help you all out there this and that pic,
    No go out there and make Wheelie look sick!

    :jawdropper:  I can't believe the difference that makes! I may just have to get him now. My biggest issue was I thought he was too tall.

    I am not a fan of the GDO line but Wheelie (of all F'n characters) is the one that always gets me looking at the line.

    It must be the head. That is one very pretty head sculpt.

    Still can't beleive Jazz is stuck sharing a mold with this bugger... *facepalm*

    Still, the mistransformation works quite well... nice explanation btw.

    And if one wants to differentiate him from Jazz a bit more, they can turn the legs around. Theyd also need to be swapped so they arent inversed, unless if you like that look.

    they are a bit wonky-almost clownlike. but given that Jazz's legs have always been weird, it didnt bother me much.

    Comparison shot! Warning, huge

    I see you've been taking rhyming speech lessons from Bullhorn of the animated series Black Dymamite. :D 

    Good job on that and the mod too! :thumbs2:

    Oh dear god that was horrifying to read. But nice and simple mod! I may see how it looks if I get Wheelie. That head has serious rape-face.

    oh yeah, he's still tall-but he's at least shorter than he was-and he comes across as stubby. and it makes his head seem less pin-like.

    This mistransformation would be neat,
    If I had his ass in seat.
