    Alright first, not the greatest as these things but this works to my standard as far as taking pics and getting some poses I am sure the amazing work most do on here can do a little better but this gives the idea.

    Also these pics are AFTER I did the mod

    This mod will allow you to move each leg individually instead of them both moving when moving one.

    First seperate the hip/waist plates by removing the 3 screws show in the picture.

    Now you can either choose to take out or leave the spring, but I chose to leave it out since I hate it and the whole jackhammer mode is lame.

    Now 2nd, you will notice the right leg connects to the left leg, you want to cut the post off up to the circle end on the leg on the inside. Use your exacto blade and heat it up and give a few passes at it, be careful here.

    Now discard the piece you cut off, put a few drops of super glue around the leg posts that go inside the hip/waist to give some tightness since the legs will be a little loose or whatever else you choose.

    Thats it. This is just a quick fix but can do more to your choosing. Just helps with the articulation with this awesome figure!!!

    Rampage is taking the lead for the amount of mods that can be done to him.

    I'm definitely going to do this to mine.

    I am 99% sure I have found a way to mod the blade so it can have metal pistons as well, I should have those up on Sunday (wife took the camera with her out of town)

    Lots of cool mods for this guy. I think I will just leave mine alone though. Good to know that I can make a great figure even better if I want to.

    Won't be using this since he's in jackhammer mode in the movie stills, but neat mod anyway, If "Red Rampage" uses the Centaur mode, i might end up using this for a custom of him.
