    i used the rid prime hotshot instead but this would work on the BB to. i used a rubber Polly cap from a gundam model and a arm from a Lego battle droid along with a bar Lego piece. now its just an extra flip and swivel. i also did some detail work. unfortunately i kinda sacrifice the vehicle mode a bit.

    nice!
    ... why not just do without the flip though?... or maybe a smaller flip joint? the swivel should be enough, and you may not have to make such a sacrifice to the alt mode?...

    i dont think i sacrifice the vehicle that badly. and as far as smaller joint i just dont have the skill for that. getting it like this was a real pain in the but on it own

    good enough. It makes his bot mode look a HELL lot better, that's for sure. XD
    and at least now the lightpiping works a lot better...

    why dont you just cut it in two then drill a hole in the flap and hood then insert something like a paper clip or something
