    I just noticed that his head looks like an old-skool Lego spaceman helmet...

    Anyway, nice work!

    I actually just picked up this figure 2 days ago. The backpack is driving me crazy. What did you do to yours?

    Agreed, what did you do to him to get that back pack better looking?

    basically what i did was carefully cut his spoiler from his shoulders, file down where i cut on both his shoulders and the spoiler halves, then re-cemented them on his backpack so he still retains his slick sportscar mode AND has freedom of movement in his shoulders, once you remove the spoilers from his shoulders just position the backpack however you please

    Wow, had I just taken the time to go look at mine, I would have relished that, lol. Not, if only something could be done about those feet... ;P

    you mean how his front toes are too loose? I put a small dab of clear nail polish in the joint on his ankle then put the toes back on
