    Hey guys,
    I remember a couple of folks who posted pics of their modded solar storm grapples. The ones I am looking for are where the ladder has been connected to his back rather than his arm. Can anyone point me to the threads? I can't find anything but reviews when I search the forums.

    That head is way too small though. Here's what I did. Drilled a hole in the backpack, stuck a pin there, drilled a hole in the attachment part of the crane. Super easy.

    Also, Grapple doesn't have a ladder. Inferno doesn't either, officially!

    It's a bit small, but it gives him a sense of bulk and proportion when standing next to other Classics cars... on the flip side, his official head is just a bit too big and goofy on top of his body (Inferno's is a bit better proportioned), so obviously your mileage may vary. I tend to prefer TF's with smaller heads to ones with bigger heads in general.

    Either way, the head is irrelevant to the mod that I did for the crane. It's still interchangeable with the old head... the real goal of the mod was just to get Grapple's distinctive "collar" back. For me, that junk around their shoulders is what really says "Inferno and Grapple" to me. :)
