    Living up to her name, Studio Series Shatter would shatter into pieces during transformation and her bot mode was far from accurate.
    I dreamed up a few modifications and changes, was inspired by others ideas and attempted to make a more accurate Shatter for @Shmoptimus Prime.

    Car mode recieved paint, chrome and tinted windows.

    Robot mode needed a bit more work. Luckily the Igniter figure was able to donate parts.
    Inspired by others modifications:
    - Face transplant.
    - Wing Modification.
    The rest were my own dreamed up modifications.
    - shoulder socket deepened.
    - shoulder, torso, hip, thigh, knee, shin and ankle details.
    - increased outward movement on hip joints
    - detail painted and chromed.
    Before and after:

    Comparison to orginal and CGI:

    Looks way better, and not straight outta the factory with no paint done.

    Woah, fuck that looks good! Maybe I can send mine back to you for updates?

    For ample compensation, of course. :D

    Holy moly this is actually a lot better than the stock figure we got, and it still transforms too!

    Might consider performing this mod on my shatter figure in the near future, you’ve gotta tell us how you’ve managed to get this result my dude

    Could the inside panel of the leg be added to the wing and made it longer?

    He did much more than that too, as stated in the OP, although you do have to have an energon igniter Shatter too.

    I'd say. For one thing, all the English has been replaced with arcane runes, possibly etched from brimstone by Lucifer's very own fingers.

    (English is actually far far worse as far as being comprehensible. Through, trough, rough, and thorough all have different sounds at the end!)

    That is wicked my dude. Even some of the smaller things like her head or the smaller shoulders would’ve made her so much better.

    Nailed it! :)

    Thank you!
    Can't wait to see your incredible pictures with Dropkick!
    Thank you!
    Agreed, it even holds together better which is a major improvement in and of itself.
    Unfortunately they only seem to talk to Chinese customizers and then steal ideas from U.S. at least that's what they did with the mods that @savio-prime did to Battle Blades Bumblebee. I might be mistaken though.
    Thank you!
    I followed the pictures that showed the wing mod, then followed the directions for the head swap. Then I used other details from the Energon Igniter to replace the car parts details. And I used Aves Sculpt Fix-it putty to fill in all gaps and seams. I might attempt a more in depth tutorial later.
    That is a fantastic idea! I might try it. I'll update if it's successful.
    Thank you!

    Your custom looks amazing! I especially like how you redid shins.

    And I just wish WJ chose my latest version of BB to KO, but they didn't. Lolol.
