    The included guns in the Classics Seeker mold have always been a problem for the non-coneheads, due to being so oversized and forcing the wings back in robot mode.

    I bought a second TR Blurr to practice the de-headmastering mod on, since my first attempt turned out very messy, in preparation for trying it on Takara's TR Blurr. I noticed however that the silver used on TR Blurr's gun reminded me a lot of the Generations Thundercracker on my shelf nearby and the shape was already fairly similar, so I thought to try them on Thundercracker.

    The results work surprisingly well. If you shave the 5mm peg down a bit, the guns fit in the shoulder-mounts and wing mounts perfectly fine, and they only push into the wings a tiny bit, as opposed to forcing them out of place like the included launchers.

    Obviously TR Blurr's gun as is works best with Thundercracker given the silver painting, but a quick coat of paint would work well for any other Seeker you'd want to adapt it to.

    Might work quite nicely for the RID Seekers... because man are their guns kind of... lame.
