    Here is probably the simplest mod for Ult OP--Cybertron Swerve's exhaust pipes, just attach them to the mechtech port on the side of the forearm. They fill in the gap that Hasbro forget to do something with and look cool. I bought Swerve a few years ago just so I could have a "speed planet" key for Primus' Omega Lock, now he's being parted out (BTW, his gun fits mechtech ports too).

    I had to do something cheap, I don't want to cut that big rectangle tab off the forearm.

    What if OP would combine with his trailer in TF4? Don't those pipes I added resemble these? Note the date of the image of my modded DOTM Ultimate OP and the original post. I was really surprised when I saw the new truck design! Maybe Michael Bay is watching these threads . . . coincidence????? Might have to paint the black bands to match the new truck now.

    I've never separated OP from the Omega Armor (trailer). I might try another OP: TF1 Voyager, HFTD Voyager, DOTM Voyager or Deluxe; I think they would be too small for a Leader though.

    ^^^No luck attaching to any of my other OPs, mechtech port doesn't have anything to plug into; if I wanted to use them on anything but Ultimate I'd have to cut plug off. Rats!
