    Does it still sit on it's landing gear properly with these attached? That's my only real concern

    Glad to see this, but it's far from the only issue with the figure for me, so I'll wait for a combo pack of thrusters, neck articulation fix, and better articulated hands. ;)

    This stuff!!!

    Easy to use, won't fall off with typical use but if you want to pull it off, it'll come off with no damage!

    Super quick shipping to the UK too!

    Just tacked them on with some sticky tac for the short term, but hot damn he looks so much better with that extra detail on the legs.
    Thanks again @jream.

    All hail J! All hail j! All hail J!!!

    Money sent! Was almost ready to sell this guy because of the empty wing, crappy face sculpt and the cartoon-to-a-fault design, but this saves MakeToy’s poor judgement slightly. Can’t wait and nice work.

    I almost hate you for eliminating the one thing that was keeping me from buying Meteor. :)  Well, not me... but my bank account

    This is great thanks for sharing! Poster tac isn't quite cutting it but I didn't want to permanently attach either!

    IMG_6541.JPG

    You can see in this pic how the thruster on the left leg already shifted once :D  It still looks amazing though it really improves the figure so much. I'm kind of shocked about how much more I like Meteor now that I have these shin thrusters! Thanks again @jream you're a credit to Transformerdom!

    (Of course after I took the pic I straightened out the thruster on the left leg. It's only attached by poster tac so I can move it around easily).
