    Ever Since I saw this mold I wanted to separate his chest. After seeing Crefigz and MonkeyBusiness do it I decided it was time to give it a try. I think I did it kinda like MonkeyBusiness only I took it a few steps further:

    Instead of just drilling to allow room for pins I added plastic to hold the pins
    in place.

    I like the way it turned out plus he's still fully transformable:

    and now something EXTRA...I love the arms that came with cannon Bumblebee, but I thought he could use his arm cannon:

    So I made one.

    This is still a work in progress, cause obviously he needs paint, I was just so happy with the way it was coming that I wanted to post what I have so far.
    Any comments and/or suggestions are always welcome!

    Wow, that's really awesome. The cuts you made hide the emptiness underneath better. And that is one nice cannon arm. Great work.

    Nicely done. I like the way you did those cuts. I figured out a way to make those wings tilt, I'm just finalizing the process. Great work!
