i have always been a fan of the original G1 powerglide. maybe it was his ease of transforming, the articulation in his arms, the fact he is a warthog jet (my favorite), or b/c he was the only transformer in the series history that ever did-the-do w/ a human chick. who knows? what i do know is that 25 years later when i learned that Hasbro was releasing him (as an ultra class fig no less), i was seriously looking forward to getting my hands on one (or 3 now). as w/ many figs nowadays, hasbro left ALOT of room for improvements. i manged to do 6 stages of mods on this guy. i had so much fun doing this custum. i was even more pleased w/ the final result. what i used: -universe red powerglide as a base -universe white powerglide junker (thanks sanchomaul) -a dremel set -a drill set -epoxy -large file -fine sandpaper -acrylics and spray enamel what i did: -dremeled the sides of outer feet to give him a flat footprint in any pose. -removed all landing gear. -dremeled fuselage hinge to allow closer placement on back of fig. -drilled a hole on the rear tail fin to fit gun as a shoulder mounted cannon. -completely gutted all electronics to eliminate top heavy problem. -replaced clear funky turbines w/ normal turbines. -fitted parts from the junker white PG onto the red one (arms, upper legs, chest piece, head). -dremeled the left & right horizontal plates next to his neck completely off. -strengthened wing/arm connector point.
