    Just cut off the mushroom peg and drilled a hole. Simple as that

    And for my latest repurpose, I give you the cheapest rack n ruin custom ever, only costing $9.23

    Totally agree. Never understood the absurd love for them and need for custom after custom. The concept is ABSURD even as far as talking robots go

    I ordered two of those too. Still waiting on them to arrive.

    Also talking with someone about making a special piece to connect the two shoulder joints together directly.

    Hope it works out.

    Nicely done! They look good enough I almost want to cancel my own R&R project and just do that. Almost.

    They lack in articulation, but they're good enough for my shelf.

    Honestly, I'd probably do that if I didn't already get the figures I'm using. They do look very good, even without working knees and elbows.

    My plan is along these lines, but with oversized KOs and removal of the wings in the middle:

    Those are good molds and you get a P-51 Double Mustang vibe alt mode.

    I'm working on a G1 Sentinel Prime and while doing research on past Autobot leaders I came across Guardian Prime and thought Cloud Hot Rodimus would be a perfect stand-in for him.

    That is a magnificent idea. If I don't find an idea for Springer, though, he gets to go to my daughter.

    Oh I agree they are a bit ridiculous, but they are a wreckers mainstay so any wreckers collection would feel incomplete without at least some sort of attempt at them
