    I customized my wfc soundwave to make the bot mode look more game accurate by removing most of the kibble, then i repainted it to give it a more game accurate paint job, this is my first attempt at weathering a full figure.

    Well, I can't speak as to its game-accuracy, but it definitely looks cool; I do like your wear effects. I love the look of that last pic; if you could get a clearer shot like that, it would look awesome.

    does he still transform?

    The back kibble was one of the things that kept me from picking this guy up - now I'd need to engineer a way to fix his calf sections...

    That's cool - all I meant was that I haven't played the game, so I don't really have a point of reference to judge it against.

    ...would it be possible to do the wheel fold mod w/o having to sacrifice the transformation?

    The horns have to be removed to make the wheels fold up this tightly?

    ...the horns can't be rotated to point up in the back?

    what kibble? the back where the wheels go? this is an awesome fig any way you look at it. and the kibble you speak of is not in anything's way to hamper the bot movement. if the wheels on his back bother you, why don't you just wrap a clear TF pack in rubber band around them to keep them tight and close? i would only completely remove the ability for a bot to TF if the alt is complete shit (like ani voy megs; which ive done). but your custom looks good none the less. Z

    note, i hope you know the wheels on his back have a hinge and the wheels can be swung around to face inward. have both wheels turned in and touching one another in the middle. the instructions do not tell you this and of course many poor saps dont realize this. try it. i bet you will regret chopping them off and loosing the ability to TF him even if you have another.

    I hoped the arm that attaches the clawed section to the wheel would allow the claw section to be rotated, is this not possible?

    Is it possible to cut a channel to enable the wheels to fold flatter against the back?

    Nice Custom! Yah, I think this is one of those toys that needs some SHINYNESS added, and while you may not have necessarily added shinyness, I think it looks better anyway. Nice modification too!
