How to fix your AoE Grimlock!

Motto: "Rule #45 of the Madeus Handbook: Timey wimey is an adequate term for scienc-y stuff."
Tired of your AOE Grimlock's ass/jaw?

Here's a fix:

Okay, you got your cool looking Grimlock in hand, but you hate that dumb transformation/ jaw gimmick that looks horrible with and without the mace attached and is reaaaaally obvious

But do not despair:

If you take this hinged big chunk of plastic and twist it up-

Image

You get this:

Image

Which IMHO, is insanely better looking

Now, pros and cons.

Pros

You get this vaguely...I don't know, back...ruffle? Either way, in person it looks great

Image

I seriously cleans up the robot mode

Image

And when you peg his mace in with this tweak... (Make sure it's backwards, the main body of the mace should be on the Dinosaur mode's throat)

Image

AND THE BEST PART IS......It centers the figure's center of gravity and, dispite the weight of the gimmick, makes him WAAAAY less backheavy.


Now the cons:

You really have to force it into being upright, it sounds really bad and crack-y, but my figure has done this several times and hasn't resulted in any stress marks or breakage

Secondly, you do get a bit of kibble behind his head

Image

Now, I've not found a better way to arrange that piece directly behind his head, but I can deal with it, plus it make's him a bit bulkier looking IMO
