    OK, I just looked at the pic above. What if you painted the lower leg/Knee of the Prime legs green, to give the appearance of a longer leg.

    Do the front wheels spin? I can't seem to shove them onto the cross piece.

    So paint the black part green? I painted the knee black so that it would cover up the gap left from cutting off the original prime knee. I could put a little more work in and try to fit the foc prime knee pads back on. The reason I completely cut the foc prime knee pads off is cuz the helicopter mode for springer would have looked weird. But some grinding down I could fit then back on, maybe.

    No they don't roll very much. I filed corners of the crosses a little to fit the wheel pegs in. Becareful that you don't file so much that the wheels don't stay in.

    Thanks. ;)

    You could leave the black part, I was talking about the actual bending knee part of the grey Prime legs (just paint the knee green). Just a way to visually cheat the short leg look without adding the knee part back on. I know that would take some work and mess with the nice transform mod you did :thumbs2:
