    This is a minor mod I did a while back. I've heard complaints about how tedious it is to transform Sideburn. I personally liked him the way he was, but after time the socket for the car front cracked and no longer stayed on the shoulder's ball plug.
    So I simply glued the car front to the car hood halves on his back. I also snipped the ball and peg off his shoulder. This made him much easier to transform...

    Aww, the car grille on the shoulder is actually my favorite part of the robot mode! Nocely done anyway, though!

    I agree. After I did this, I ordered a new Sideburn on eBay :)

    Yes you can. I've done it. I'm making a G2 character from this mold.

    It's still in early stages but basically I had to shave down the plastic where the hinges lay to get it where it is. This is one of my back burner projects so I may not finish it any time soon.
