That's a valid point, I guess. I never really noticed the teeth on the claws before. But I s'pose if you wanted to they'd be easy enough to clip off and file down.

again, the blue ball coming out of the matrix is the only thing that really bugs me, other than that, any thing else is minor at most.

Actually, I was kinda worried to do anything on the orange parts. Im afraid the plastic will become to scratched and losse ts transparency. Any one of you altered transculant parts without visible scars?
and the color is a deep metallic red btw. might just be my cam or your sreen settings, dunno.

No problem. Just need to file smooth, and sand up to a HIGH grit sandpaper. I mean like automotive store sandpaper ment to sand car paint. Its like glass, if its all scuffed and scratched up, it looks like crap, but if you can get it back to smooth, almost polished, it will go back to the clear look.

Oh, and DON'T snap off any plastic. either saw or file it off. When you bend translucents like that, you break a larger deeper area of the plastic on a molecular level, and everything around the area you're snapping will get a wierd white color to it. That is basically because you have separated the molecules and no matter how smooth you try to get the surface, on a really small scale its pitted and will never be polished and clear again, unless you dig deep enough, sand past it.

heh...That whas exactly what I was afraid of. You see it on normal plastic aswell when it gets stressed.

Thanks guys.. Im not sure yet if I want to loose the claws but ill consider it. Just gonna test it first on some spare energon-starts or somethin alike.
