    - Modified the croc legs to allow for better stability and robot mode integration.

    Ah the joys of a brand new line, and certainly a major step up from the remold heavy nature that was Combiner Wars. Now granted for the most part it is my fault for even attempting to go retail completionist where the most I could ever hope for in a figure was a different head sculpt and paint scheme. But damn I cannot say no to what is easily some of the best mold detailing I've seen, and Titans Return continues onward with that trend by making every figure so damn nice to look at.
    Especially considering we've been getting a ton of Decepticons (thank Primus) and to make things more interesting we're now heading back into obscure territory. Yes folks, this is why to this day I am still collecting. It feels so good to finally get updates to characters that some people (me mostly) sometimes forget were part of the G1 family, and this interior crocodile alligator is no exception. Well at least whenever you fix up the leg joints. Also I still need to finish painting up Waspinator, and about 50 other customs that I couldn't be bothered to complete.

    Well given how much better I've gotten just within the last year, lets just say every custom I upload will at least be worth a glance or two.

    Seriously most of my old stuff looks like insecticon scrap in comparison.

    So I know I’m late to the party - looks great btw - but how did you mod the croc legs for better stability in robot mode?
