    Hey guys!
    Some of you may know that my hobby is creating stop motions, that´s why I modify my toys.
    Man, I love the HA collection, but the kibble on the backs...*yuck*
    So I have unscrewed 2 screws that hold the dashboard to the cab. The figure is more stable in stand now and as a benefit, I can still use the wings like the ones in the movie.

    The back back doesn't really bother me much, but very cool that you figured out how to do away with it. :thumb 

    Stays in place during transformation??

    The backpack does indeed suck however I prefer it to parts forming. function over fashion in my world I'm afraid.
