    All I did was sand down the nub where the running boards are hinged, allowing them to swing up. I also transformed the doors in a different way, down instead of up.

    Warning: At least one person has cracked the ball-joints on his SS doing the alternate door transformation. Mine is just fine and i've transformed it this way a dozen times. I don't know what I am doing differently, so I can't offer any advice. The running board mod is pretty much just a little sanding and that's it.

    Interesting idea, idk how acurate that is, but it doesn't look horrible. If I still had mine, I'd try it out to see if I liked it.

    Looks very nice, I especially like how he looks less hollow from the side transformed this way, I may just have to get him now, maybe...

    I like it. I tried it on mine when it was first mentioned, but on mine, the ball joint is way too tight. Still, good concept!

    Looks good, if only you were able to recreate the "wings" he had. Ah well, looks better than how the instructions say to transform him.

    I've never handled the toy, but mayyyybe a thin coat of super glue might prevent cracking?
