    Tf Optumis Rid backpack mode part 1 this was just a test with super glue to test concept looks like it works fine going to epoxy it for a better stick will be making a tut on you tube using the other side. Part 2 of this mode will be possible hands and the third will be a metallic repaint let me know what you guys think so far

    Now that is a pretty cool mod:thumb 

    I like how you have part of the cab wrap around the wheel itself, nice. And the hinges keep it fixed in place, so there's no spinning this way or that? Awesome!

    Dang, that really smart of you to do that! I've been trying to figure out a way to fix the backpack on my Optimus but I just couldn't figure out what to do. Do you mind if I try to copy this mod from you on my own Optimus?

    looking good, think i might try this myself for my Ultra Magnus Repaint i got plan if you don't mind. i like how the smoke stacks sit higher, gives him a more like a two cannons mounted to his back instead of just random kibble... great idea, can't wait to see how it turns out

    This looks really good.

    Can't wait to see your video:)  You're going to provide a link, right?

    By the way, how did you get the smoke stacks out of their wedges? I had a very hard time getting mine to come out--I ended up cutting them off:(
