    This is similar to the sacrilege thread in TGD, but here I want people to share (in detail, if needed) about minor mods you've done to your TFs to make them better! The right bit of paint here, a small bit of filing here, whatever simple stuff you did to make your TFs cooler that anyone can do as well!

    A couple of mine:

    Painted Sixgun's (from Metroplex) visor black

    The alt Sideswipe chest mod

    I forget his name, but on the three figure bullet train combiner, I filed down the end of the light up gun, so it fits in all the way up into the train, where it used to hang off the back of the train and look really dumb.

    Your turn!

    I painted Cyb Prime's key, to have a gold border. I've also been repainting LOC Prime to have more correct paint aps. LOC Screamer now has two swords. I repainted the upper cab section on little fat Prime red. I also get rid of the minicon post on the top of bendy Prime's cab, and plugged the hole.

    Modifying RM Prime so that he turns into a truck, was more than a minor modification. :)

    Touched up a few BW figs with some gold & chrome trim. Mostly to TM Megatron & Dinobot, the rest was just claws , teeth etc.
    Gave RiD Bruticus & BM Savage /Noble a good touching up.

    Added some extra paint aps to a few Energon figs

    Pane lined Armada Unicron , E Signal Flare & Cyb Vector Prime

    Made a trailer for Spychanger Prime & SC Scourge and working on one for MP Prime

    The rest are kitbashes

    Shaved the extra plastic off of Universe Ramjet. It was the area right behind the cockpit so now the nose is staight instead of pointing down.

    Off the top of my semi-drunken head:

    - Hood mod for Alt. Sideswipe
    - Reprolabels stickers for Alt. Meister
    - Gold paint for Alt. Grimlock's torso. The color ended up being a bit too dark, so that it blended in with the silver body, but seeing as I hadn't painted a figure before then, I was proud of it.

    Currently planning a minor repaint of BTA Alert into Prowl. I'll head swap once I get Alt. Prowl, but I figure a repaint of the Alert head should be good practice for future stuff.

    slight gun alteration to armada hotshot. Filed down the trigger so it's fired manually and won't go off just by attaching the minicon.

    Cut back the plastic on BM tankor's arms to allow his hands to move further forward.

    silver paint aps on E. Omega Supreme. Red chest on E. Prime and silver details added.

    made knees for Armada sideways. (a simple matter of filing the suare pegs round and cutting back the plastic behind the knees.)

    Altered E. Bulkhead's coptor blades into swords.

    fixed the backward lever on BW TM2 megatron's dragon neck.

    some black detailing with a paint marker on Armada megatron. (his details really stand out like this making him look much more badass) By smearing the wet paint with my finger over the orange parts I got them to a slightly darker more industrial looking color rather than the safety orange.

    slightly increased the amount of elbow articulation on armada smokescreen

    Painted the gunbarrels on Cybertron hotshot's arms.

    Painted the cyber keys on ransack and prime.



    Slight arm articulation increase on Armada starscream.

    Painted BM obsidian black as his name suggests.

    Modified BM mirage's missiles and hands so he can hold his missiles as swords...or hockey sticks anyway.

    the rest are more involved kitbashes.
