    this little guy took just under an hour to do.he's had his head lights and tail lights painted in,certain bot parts painted black,a little bit of panel lining and of course his wheels are now pimped out courtesy of hotwheels.

    Great! I saw him yesterday but I picked up Optimus and Jetfire because I wanted to make something with the combined mode. Those wheels look amazing. Have you use the soldering iron technique?

    yup.soldering iron and a small flathead screwdriver to remove the stock wheels,then tiny machine screws to attach the hotwheels rims.(that way,it's easy to swap out the rims for other sets in the future.)

    I'm sorry, but I'll have to steal your idea in the near future. The wheels look too cool.
