    20161029_122300.jpg Modified the backpack to look more like the original figure.

    Used a center punch to mark exact center on the piece that holds the backpack. Then started out with a 1/16 drill bit and worked my way up...
    1/16
    3/32
    1/8
    9/64
    5/32
    11/64
    3/16 - final drill bit size

    I feel that you should work your up using every drill bit size I used and not try to skip any sizes as not to ruin your figure. Remember to remove the wheel also and just drill very slowly and do not push. The drill bits will very easily cut this plastic.



    Center punched the spot I was going to drill and started with the 1/16 drill bit size.

    it absolutely alters nothing in either transformation and can still be used in its original way.

    I honestly believe Hasbro could've had the sense to make this factory. Well done

    Looks nice but seems like a lot of work and risk for what an extra 1/2 inch of hight? I think i would like this Notorious Weaponmaster's Kibble by SteamShield on Shapeways better if i want it secure but since it also can just rest on it the look is easy to pull off.

    This is a better idea if you don't want to spend the extra cash. Really. Good idea

    The shapeways is a great upgrade piece if you don't want to alter the figure, this is a great mod if you don't want to spend extra money!

    It will be too small. I've tried. It looks like tiny head syndrome.
