    I really like the added height and the look of the new thighs (RiD or FE?), but those panels are very much out of place. Maybe because they're so bright in alt mode, but I think it's also because they kind of look like separate pieces of a different figure altogether (which they are). They just don't mesh with this figure.

    I like this, though the panels do look a bit out of place in truck mode. I don't know if its possible, but I think the panels would look better if they could be placed near the rear, forming something like the sides of a trailer or dump truck.

    Yeah , I know what you mean the panels are needed there like that in order to cover the gap left by the leg mod/swap they could be placed more to the back but they wouldn't cover the gap , it still can be displayed without the panels but the truck would look divided. I will try something new since I have to make a couple of these. Thank you :)

    I was wondering if it was covering something up, but it looked alright on my phone, so I didn't think much of it:p  It's still a pretty sweet looking robot mode:thumb

    Wow, simple yet effective idea! Fe or rid thighs? Direct fit? Paint looks great too!

    Your panel lining and paint applications really make this figure look great! Awesome job!

    Those are definitely PRID Prime thighs.
