    On Universe Octane the instructions call for the guns to be put on the rear of his "trailer" when he's in truck mode but I found that position to be a little off putting so I switched it up.

    Now he looks like he has quad smoke stacks and if he needs to attack they can just be aimed forward. Anyone else done this?

    To be honest I put them there first but as guns instead of at the end. That's a pretty cool trick though.

    That is how I will display Octane's truck mode. Just as soon as the damn things get to the UK...

    That's what I do as well. I can see why Hasbro's designers put them at the end, it's to cover up the robot arm parts. But the whole mode looks cooler with them there.

    Thats how I do it, too. Octane isn't really meant for offensive power in his vehicle mode anyways.

    looks very cool. I'll probably keep mine on the back end to cover up the robot arms, but that works really well as smokestacks.

    I think Hasbro actually misinterpreted their own design with the instructions. I think they were meant to go there what with the holes and all...

    That's how I do it whenever I transform him to truck mode as well, looks pretty cool like that. :D
