    I wanted to keep the side hip panels, but ditch the back wheels.

    This mode still transforms, and you can put everything the way it was originally and keep the back kibble. However, now the wheel assembly can be removed and made into a little Roller of sorts.

    First, transform him into beast mode. Wait, Truk not munky. Get him to Truck mode.

    Very nice. It eliminates what little kibble he had to begin with and gives him another accessory.

    That's awesome! Now if someone can take this one step further and figure out a way to fold the fuel tanks between the smokestacks he'd be amazing.

    you can leave them on, or pull the wheel assembly off to make the roller. the original robot mode is still there, or you can pull it off to slim it down.

    BRILLIANT... PURE GENIUS! I think you have invented and kicked off what will be one of the coolest and most ingenious Prime mods EVER. A third party needs to take the rear wheels and make them shift into an ATV to evac humans out of danger zones.

    Can you take a pic of the necessary tools you need?

    I mean what do you use to cut plastic!? Sorry I also never attempted a mod unless it involved screws

    it's a flush cutter and sanding files

    sanding files can be bought off ebay/amazon for a few dollars, flush cutter for around 8-10.

    if you want to just take the backpack out, just tap the pin out. its 1 pin and its not in too tight actually.
