    Anybody done this yet?

    I trimmed a little plastic off his landing gear to get them to flip out that way, but otherwise this is fresh from the box. :)

    ***updated with pics of a leg configuration for those who don't want to mod the landing gear, or who don't like teeny-tiny feet like me. :D

    I agree! It's neat that you were able to do this with such a small amount of modification! :)

    I love that! I've loved everything I've seen of this figure actually. Gotta get me one.

    Doesn't he have a lil buddy in the scout class or something?

    Is it possible to do this with Skystalker combined?

    Looks AWESOME! :thumb 

    I love the pics of him hanging upside-down with his wings folded. :D

    Thanks guys! :) 

    Yeah, I was really impressed that I could get that folded-wing hanging bat pose. It almost convinces me that the designers were thinking of this when the mold was created.

    I was actually amazed that nobody had tried this yet... I mean, it IS Mindwipe after all, right? :D 

    You can't really do it with Skystalker though... the connection ports are on the parts that become Mindwipe's shoulders, so as soon as you transform him a little, the pegs on Skystalker won't match up anymore.

    I do really like this mold though.. considering how spindly he is in places, it's actually a really solid, beefy figure who holds poses well. The jet mode is rock solid, and has pretty much no kibble.

    Freaking sweet. I was tinkering around with this the other day. I'd like this to take the place as classics mindwipe.
