    To me, The alt mode of generations Tailgate don't look in anything the Comics version, so I do modification to look more Comic...

    Now, I need to close the holes in arms , legs and Back... P_20170225_170039_vHDR_On.jpg P_20170225_170029_vHDR_On.jpg P_20170225_170120_vHDR_On.jpg

    Great work! The robot mode benefits from these mods as well!

    I think to anyone the Generations toy's alt mode doesn't look anything like the comics given it's an Earth mode which Tailgate doesn't have. :lol 

    Wonderful mod, BTW. That's a pretty dang cute little space car.

    Now I regret selling mine.
    Would you be willing/able to do a short tutorial or explanation on how you did that?

    This is pretty sweet! I just tried swapping the arms and removing the back pin, and that was the point when I realized how much other cutting you did to make the alt mode work.
