    What Part swapping do you do with your Transformers? It can be anything from a Headswap to trading out limbs & everything in between. The only rule is no weapon swapping whatsoever, as almost every Transformer weapon ever made is either on a 5-millimeter peg or a C-clip. I'll start. I've swapped out my normal DOTM Deluxe Optimus Prime's arms with Lunarfire Prime's arms & swapped out DOTM Bumblebee's head with Nitro Bumblebee's more accurate (in my opinion) head.

    07 Stockade's head on Tomahawk makes a yummy Classics G1 Tracer, especially with the leg mod (no more chicken legs!)

    I have a BWII Thrust whose right arm I've swapped with a Machine Wars Megaplex. The random ridge on the arm mounts an old Street Shark missile perfectly and I really like the look of it.

    Sounds cool.
    Does Stockades head fit on there without any further work?
    It can still Transform with the new head?
    Have any more info regarding the leg mod? I never heard of it.

    My main ones right now are Henkei Sideswipe and Sunstreaker head swaps to make Tigertrack and a custom character I call Fireball (forgot about Spinout being a working name for G1, I had already put flame decals on the red Sunstreaker before I remembered). I use one of Generations Skullgrin's c-clip weapons with United Wipeout. I switched missiles in a few Dnergon and Cybertron repairs to differentiate them further as well.

    The next one I'm planning to do is some switching between extra Cybertron Deluxe Optimus (Armada repaint), RTS Tracks and Generations Wheeljack to make. Classics Downshift and Que. We'll see how it actually turns out lol...

    Shit, totally forgot about putting Gen Wheeljack's parts in RTS Tracks to make Slicer. Now I'm gonna get an extra Over Run to swap out to make Black Diaclone Tracks and Downshift from the leftovers.


    And when I get Metalhawk, I'm gonna get a Black Shadow head and spray paint it white to make Dai Atlas.

    Gave FP Shrapnel Breacher's gun.

    I miss those 3mm clips. So much better than having 5mm holes all over the figure.

    What mod? Tomahawk doesn't have chicken legs, unless you're not talking about the HFTD figure.
