I’ve had a few requests to show how to get Blast Off into his alternate arm mode so lets take a closer look:
Start in his Shuttle Mode
Next, un-peg his thruster section and unfold the legs:
Don’t worry about the thruster parts, just have them out of the way for now. Continue by opening the legs and pulling out the hand parts:
Next, close the legs and peg the two hand halves together:
From the side they should look like this:
Now just fold the legs back onto themselves like so, make sure the hip joints are facing in the correct direction so the. Legs fold backwards:
Finally, bring the thruster section down. The “points” should face up.
They remain loose so you can adjust them with arm movement:
There you go. Way better than the goofy original version, if you ask me.
This is just one idea. Remember, like the G1 Bruticus, he’s a scramble-city combiner and you can use any limb as an arm or leg.
I highly recommend playing around with him and seeming what you feel works best. Unfortunately, Brawl will make a crummy arm no matter how you configure him, but he makes a heck of a leg!
