    Hey all , i did a little upgrade on a Worlds Smallest Optimus Prime Trailer.. I just got him in the mail the other day and didnt like how the inside looked with the robot crane attached to the floor of the trailer..

    So i did some thinking and went through a box of parts and found the leg section off and Medabots robot skeleton.. I filed down the metal a bit so it would fit in the orginal hole that the crane sticks in and then added a ball joint to the bottom of the crane and thats it lol , took about 10 minutes to do lol.. It dont fold down though so when you put it into truck mode you have to pull it out and put it back to the orginal way and then just store the arm in the back..

    Ill post some pics so you can see, i think it looks pretty good and probably look better with a bit of paint.. Tell me what you think :)

    UPDATE!!!

    After looking him over it didnt look right so i did a little more to it to make it look more like the larger G1 version.. I think it looks more clean now then the first fit i did.. I got pretty lucky to find a piece of plastic the same color of the trailer lol, the shape of it fits pretty well too.. I think it will all come together once i get the repro lables for it ..

    All you have to do now is rig the spring-loaded launcher to push Roller off the back of the trailer!
