... because cheap toys need love too.

I love Bot Shots, even the jet molds, which are quite deformed and rather un-jetlike, but still cool. The biggest flaw with them is the set of 4 wheels, there to simplify design, assembly, and provide a common chassis to go with the launchers and whatever other Bot Shots toys are coming. I decided to take my extra Jetfire and gie him a more accurate set of tricycle landing gear, i.e. a single nose wheel.

Behold my somewhat sloppy effort, in pics with too much brightness! :HEADHURTS:

Somehow he looks dorkier in robot mode, but the alt mode is the payoff. I need to get some epoxy to fill in the space under the nosecone, where the new nose wheel is glued, for more support. Still transforms perfectly- *boing!*

This particular Jetfire did that already, so he still does it occasionally. There's less moving mass (one wheel vs. two) but it's further out, so it kinda balances out that way Physics! :-B

That was my first thought too, how well does he balance within the actual game?

I don't play the game, I just collect them. Can't imagine how it would, though.
