    This would simply be beyond words.

    Sure, the smokestacks, the grill, and the headlights don't match, but it's more about the paint than the shape of things. Besides, I think the smokestacks are an easy fix.

    That strangely looks like a cross between mudflap and prime.

    the paint and most details can be done easily, it's that dang grill which would be the hurdle. I think even the wheel wells coult be easily swapped out with a model.


    question is, how do you modify to a slanted front grill like that, when the current grill becomes the flats of his feet.

    You can't. That's just way too hard. The closest you could get is parts-forming.

    As for the front wheel fenders, those wouldn't have to be swapped out. My idea is to cut off the headlights, and glue new ones onto the fenders to emulate their location on the photo of that truck. Not to mention the back tapering shape of the grill cuts into the storage space of the arms.

    Er...outside of partsforming, getting that slanted grill on the ROTF Prime is pretty much impossible since the grill becomes his feet. Radicons can do lots of things, but reverse-engineer a toy to the degree enough to pull off that gril while still maintaining flat feet? I really doubt it, but if someone can pull that off I'll be amazed.
