    I thought I would give it a shot after seeing everyone else do it. I purchased 2 of the Springers, one to mod. I used the wheels from a Cybertron Hardtop. Wheels do roll. Front wheels I sanded the post down to fit in the missile launcher then used Gorilla Glue to secure them in. I then chopped down the missiles to fit on the other side (not shown)

    I only took pics of the "Car" mode.

    I would ALSO like to give a thumbs up to all those who did this before me. If it wasnt for the great customizers on here, I would not have been able to get this one :)

    quick question what is the best way to do the front wheels? I have a set of wheels but had to remove the pin to free them. Also is there a way to make the wheels eject and then be able to use the missles?

    I left the Pin in and just trimmed down the plastic around it to fit in the Missile launchers. I then glued the whees to the back of the launchers, cut the missiles down to about 2 inches so they would still fit in the launcher. Then I painted the missiles red. When I get a light box I will take more pics.

    I have not figured out how to remove the blades yet and set them up to be removeable. :-(

    Cool. :D  I'd like to try adding wheels to my Springer too with your method.
