Like many others, I was disappointed with tlk Hot Rod, his lack of screen accuracy really put a downer on a great figure. So, I decided to alter him. Originally tried to keep him transformable, but as the work went on it wasn't possible. I'd already modded his feet using he rotf red bumblebee repaint, a figure i would wind up using alot of. The colour was almost a match for hot rods red, here with everything that was going back on. Gave him a ball jointed waist using lego. Used the hip panels from the bee recolour to cover the wheels which I moved from his arms to his calves. here he just needs the chest, shoulders and hands attaching, before a small repaint to the silver and orange. The new waist makes him slightly taller, which helps the gorilla arms. The shoulder pads now fit into the wheel wells, making him a lot sleeker. More pics as the work goes on.
