    IMG_9744.JPG Well I keep posting little mods in the WFC Earthrise Wheeljack thread so thought I should post here now instead. I gave him some wing extensions, a gun, and better rocket. Next will work on some tools. His eyes really need some brightening as well but I can't get head apart. May cut tiny metallic blue foil stickers and drop in.

    A shout out to fellow customizer and maratimer GotBot! I worked on this lad while listening to his Generations Wheeljack VS Earthrise Wheeljack review. Hope I have done Jack justice.

    IMG_9728.JPG IMG_9729.JPG IMG_9730.JPG IMG_9731.JPG The wing extensions came from Generations. When I took them off there were little nubs/pegs inside the wing tip sockets. They were a nice friction fit. I drilled small holes into the Earthrise wings so I could pin the posts on making them a stronger bond. A lightsaber was the perfect fit. I sanded the back of the Generations wings so they pegged in close to flush. They will fit in Jack's chest in car mode.

    Siege Bluestreak rifle, and Hot Soldiers Soundwave missile. Wheeljack's rocket is removable so it can play fire.
