    So i got Genteiban (limited edition) Henkei Wildrider. I swapped the spoilers and thigh pieces with my botcon black rodimus. I think the grey spoiler of black rodimus looks better matched on wildrider.

    As you can see, the grey plastic pieces are a little different. I didnt want mismatched grey plastic on wildrider, so I swapped the thighs. I didnt bother with the shoulder ball joint nor the sliding pieces for the rear wheels.

    That looks really good. That really improved both of them. Good idea.

    those are 2 expensive toys. i like the flames on botcon rodimus better, but really loved the chrome on wildrider. i didn't realize the difference in the colors until now. nice swap.

    Very cool. I would have just used krylon silver and sprayed the gray pieces.

    Subtle, but nice.

    Lol...he just did some parts swapping. The only tool he needed was a screwdriver. It's not like he used a soldering iron or hacked them up with a hobby knife.
