    Because it's not just the gun on the left arm, I swapped the entire lower forearm out. The right forearm attaches to the gun so much more completely than the left forearm. Doing that, however, doesn't allow the arms to fold up nearly as far as they need to transform him. If you just plug the mechtech gun onto the left arm he'll transform just fine. I've had a lot of people asking how hard it would be to swap the forearms and hands around to make him look more G1. The answer is: it's actually pretty easy if you don't want to turn him into a tank anymore.

    Ultimately, though, I was just bored at work and trying a few things out. :lol

    Stellar review, natch!
    DOTM Shockwave is bad-assery.

    Ah, :lol  That explains that. I was wondering why with just the gun on the other arm's mechtech point would impede transformation.

    Is it hard to do that mod?

    Yeah, not hard at all. In the case of Roadbuster, I put a couple layers of plain scotch tape in the channel that the grey pieces slides in inside the gun. Adds some friction so the gun stays in whichever mode you put it in without permanently modding/damaging the figure

    Another great review. I was really excited for this figure when we first got pictures of him, but since then my excitement has dwindled, and I probably won't get him. It's a really good looking figure, but now that we've seen his game design, it just looks rather lacking in comparison. Though who knows, an extremely good repaint can make a mold look better, lol.
