    I took out the spring, sanded down the nubs on the grey ring and tightened the fit with some nail polish. Now I have the option of putting the chest pieces into a few different positions.

    Interesting mod, though having them turned all the way up like that just doesn't look good on Bumblebee, imo. Might work for a future repaint of him, but just doesn't make Bumblebee look any better, imo. Though by the sounds of it, the mod allows the pieces to stay in place better than before, so there's a definite plus.

    Actually....HA Skids does have "wing doors" like Mudflap has...lol......

    Dude, everyone is entitled to his or her own preferences. if his preference is this config, then let him do it. we should encourage new ideas and provide constructive comments here.

    I just find that the comment not cool. But that's just my 2 cents.

    Wow. Just...........wow.

    Anyway, the intention was to add more differences to the HA mold for perhaps a repaint as another character, or just to add a little difference to mine over another's BB. And it stops the chest from zinging back in. It can still go into the normal config.

    Hmmm, I like you thinking with the wing doors...

    Bt seriously, this mod took a lot of work. I think it adds a little to the igure as well.

    Interesting; the whole chest/bonnet alignment (or lack of it) is one of the more disappointing things about HA BB - possibly a bit extreme placement in the photos, but the fact you can now angle them a little more like they should be definitely adds something.

    don't tell him what to do with his own figure. this adds the option of the extremely slanted chest, it can still look like the original

    There's nothing wrong with posting a disagreement with other's or their approach to a custom, however, doing so constructively is the only way. Maliciousness will never be tolerated.

    I think you did a great job, and greatly improved the variety of poses for him, which is always A+ in my book!
    I'm going to try a similar mod with my HA Bee if I get one.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I think the 3rd pictures positioning is the best but I like the idea of having options!

    The springs in HA BB's chest are annoying as hell so taking them out is definately a good idea!!

    I think I'm going to try taking the springs out and see how that goes!! Cheers for the idea!!!
