    All I could say is that this could be one of the most screen-accurate and best movie Bumblebee mold that Hasbro ever made! But, not everything is perfect with this Hunt for the Decepticons line of movie Bumblebee, the chest portion! So I gave a little modification to it's chest for both chest panels tilt to the center of the body. Until then watch out for this as it's almost complete!

    Click here for the completed thread of this figure!

    TUTORIAL: Remove the chest panels and trim the hinges. Select the appropriate size ball joint that fits perfectly on the untrimmed hinge of the body and have it attached to each of the chest panels with modeling epoxy. With the use of ball joint, you can now have the chest panels tilt as seen in the movies!

    You rock. I guessed it was something like this. I was just concerned that I would choose the wrong size and the panels would never line up.

    I know this SHOULD be self explainatory, but... Where does one cut the arms to glue the ball joints on for the chest mod? Is it just behind the pin hole, or a little further back? I'd love to do this on my own so I don't have to keep bothering savio prime to do it for me, lol.
