    I've always thought that Classics Rodimus wasn't quite G1-y enough, particularly with such small exhaust pipes, so I decided to make a few modifications. I wanted to give him bigger exhaust pipes, and I wanted them to be removable for robot mode. A friend of mine helped me cut the pegs off of Cyebrtron Swerve's exhaust pipes, and put magnets in them and on Rodimus's sides. I then did some panel lining and other small modifications with a Sharpie. Finally, I put the Reprolabels on him, although I modified some of them (a few on his spoiler, and the ones on his lower arms). His gun is Titanium Rodimus Prime's gun, with some tape around the handle to made it thick enough for him to hold. I was too lazy to do anything better for the handle, and was worried that if I tried to glue something onto it, it wouldn't hold very well.
