    Edit: Apparently most of the pictures weren't showing up. Hopefully its all good now!

    I wasn't a fan of the proportions of the siege galaxy upgrade optimus prime. He always felt a little too short to really capture the size of the original version.

    I cut out some of the plastic above where the foot should actually go to accommodate the toe using an exacto knife and some pliers.

    Then I drilled out plastic higher up on the inside of the shin for the clip to fit into.

    This allows the leg to snugly fit inside in a higher position, increasing the height by about an inch.

    I also painted part of his supermode head black to better match the original

    The end result is a much more proportionate galaxy optimus prime!

    Hope this helps!!

    I've seen similar mods for the Ultra Magnus version of the figure, but this is the first time I've seen it done with Optimus. And I have to say that it looks quite great! Good work, man.
