Because I chopped them off!
“I hAvE ArTiCuLaTiOn.”
Hotshot is MUCH better without those stupid spoilers. He can rotate his arms freely without having to worry about readjusting the back kibble, and the back kibble isn’t fighting with itself for positions. As an added bonus, it looks like pretty cool back armor.
I’m not going to make a guide for this, because all I did was cut the spoilers off and make sure it looked smooth afterward. Sure, you could do it carefully enough to glue the spoilers to his back kibble, but I didn’t like the look of that.
Oh noes! Now Jolt can’t attach in car mode using the official transformation. Oh well, he was just barely slid on there anyway.
Oh noes again! Show accuracy says he needs spoiler! Alt mode is ruined! Bah! I didn’t care about the show, and no spoiler means he looks like less of a ricer.
Something else I’d like to address though is a trend I’ve seen lots of people start doing- removing the back kibble for bot mode and\or putting it on his arms for fist armor. This isn’t good for Hotshot in the long run, and it’s a little disturbing to see people jumping on the bandwagon for this. Those pegs are friction and pressure based, so the more you remove them the more you warp the little bits at the end that cause the friction and the pressure. But, I guess those people probably don’t care about whether the back kibble is lose in alt mode and it’s not like they probably going to display him with the back kibble on his back in bot mode, so that may be a moot point.
As for JaAms, I’d recommend Apple and Blackberry.
