    DSC_0077.jpg DSC_0077-1.jpg DSC_0072.jpg FB_IMG_1481776152589.jpg DSC_0073.jpg So that's a simple mod I'm sharing tonight.
    Lots of carving and strugles on finding a half-back head to match but it worked just as planned. BTW I used Classics Ironhide head.

    Fully tranformable, no partsforming.

    Cool. I've been wanting to do this. I'm assuming you cut a hole in the plastic in front of his face/head mount. How does it look from above, in robot mode.

    You gotta cut part of the orange flat inner area of the front part of the car, the one which folds down and turns into the upper chest carefully then you unscrew the head from the tiny headmaster figure. The hardest part is to find another fitting half for the head, I used Classics Ironhide. Then you attach a balljoint to the head, do some sanding work on the carved parts and voila. Here are the parts I used before carving the inner part of the vehicle front piece.

    Why does it seem like all Rodimus
    and Ironhide heads are eerily similar?

    *Hotrod enters home*
    Chromia: oh hey!
    Hotrod: hi Mom! Where's dad at?
    Chromia: oh honey he's still at the moonbase, but he should be leaving soon.
    Hotrod: oh...okay..is he taking the shuttle again?
    Chromia: yes dear. I know you've probably had a rough day, so go on outside. I hear the nice young man Daniel went fishing, maybe you can still catch him
    Hotrod: okay, thanks mom!
    Chromia: oh honey, do be careful! (That boy is just like his father, always loosing his head...)
