    Modifying the head was easy. Just snip a good chunk out of the internal tabs.

    The knees, on the other hand, that was a pain in the ass. Kept trying to figure out just what the hell was blocking the parts from clipping on properly. Didn't look like there should have been a problem in the first place. And then I kept shaving. And shaving. And still more shaving, and finally they slipped on, and even then they were still incredibly snug.

    All the parts are very fragile when one try to fix them,if accidentally you snap off wrong part,that's it,you will not get to complete the figure.

    Thats why man invented superglue, if you dont have the modeling skills to repair minor problems I would't suggest building this thing.

    I was wondering, how hard would it be to use the gas tanks as battery packs??

    I've been trying to figure out where to hide battery packs. I just don't know where to put them.

    Is this model kit ever going back on sale again? It's basically been out of stock since it was introduced, and I heard they were going to make another batch in December, but I have not seen them restocked anywhere.

    I was just wondering the same thing. Now that they know it is highly in demand, why not make more? And more characters!!!

    More characters? Only DMK Optimus Prime is selling well,not Bumblebee,hence i think DMK series will only have these 2 figures.

    All I have to say is fucking beautiful.

    I hope you didn't glue him into that pose though, cause Optimus needs a more dynamic pose to fit the amazing paint job you've done.

    Does anyone know where you can still get one of these at a good price? Or is that probably out of the question right now?
