    So, I love the design of the Cyberverse figures right now. They’re highly cartoony, but they can also fit right in with other universes.

    Case in point, Hammerbyte. I was going to try for a Generation 2 TF, but the torso was too much of a pain in the ass to paint or take apart. So instead, we have Transmetal I Maximal Hammerbyte reporting for duty!

    So yeah, it’s not a major mod. All I really did was paint a bit and turn the tail into a melee weapon. But I’m proud of what I did, and that it looks pretty solid.

    How did you do the tail mod? I’m getting Hammerbyte soon and might do the same thing if I feel motivated enough lol

    The tail isn’t mounted with much more than pressure and a nub. It’s easy to pull off, and I trimmed the plastic above it to make it fit in the hand.

    I did have to reinforce the plastic with some glue, though.


    If you plan to crack open the torso, be real careful. It’s not mod friendly.
