How To fix DOTM Voyager Irnohide Stomach-Issue
2 Days ago I got my DOTM Ironhide. I was so exited about him sinc ei Saw the first Pics that I said to myself: This will be the Best Movie Ironhide till yet - but I was wrong!
The Figure himself is Amazing, But his Hip/Stomach has a very annoying issue: It pops out permantly! I was so angry that I fired a junker Movie Blackout against a Wall! So much frustrating! Posing without popping out his Stocmach part: Impossible!
So I decided to use my Dremel and 10 Minutes of Work (You'll need less than 5 Minutes!) to make his:
There are mostly only 4 Steps to do:
1. Cut the Black Chestpiece right Behind this piece:
If neccesary yet, drill this hole (be patient, i you cut to much, it will get weak and could be broken!)
2. Right under the Hood there are 2 small grey hinges which can be moved, they are very tough, but its okay! When you look in front of Ironhide, start with the Left one. Push the Grey Hinge to the Right and carve it out (No need to do this on the Right hinge, it perfect there!):
3. When you're done, push the Grey hinges to the inner Side of the Hood:
4. Put all together and now the final part: Push the Stomach-Pin into his Chest!
This is it! You're done! No Pop-Out anymore! Transformation and Altmode are untouched! Transformatio is only extended with this!
What do you think? No it's an really Awesome toy! In my notes he jumped from an E to a B! I Love it!
I think it's amazing and so easy! Hope Hasbro did this with the final version, so the Kids could play ith this Awesome Guy!
Now i've to clean up the Cutparts ^^
Pleasse leave comments and critics!
And sorry for my bad english, i explained it as good as i can!
Very well done. Thanks for posting this!
