    MPM Barricade's weird wrists don't rotate or pivot, sadly, but with a tiny bit of partsforming, they can!

    I used a shorter pin to hold the wheel on for alt mode. For robot mode, the wheel separates from the arm and attaches to the hand, which can rotate and swivel using its transformation joints.

    I don't like how the bracket for the wheel hangs loose in palm-up poses, but I couldn't see a way to avoid that. A little plastic trimming did the trick. Your thoughts please!
