Flick Missile Upgrade to Ninjago Thunder Raider, 71699.
These submodules replace the submodules built in steps 72 and 74 of the vehicle.

I have a new hobby. I am constantly searching for official sets that I can build out of my existing collection without buying the actual set. Sometimes I have to buy some parts that I can't do without, but with The Thunder Raider set, I was able to ratrod the whole set, without buying ANYTHING, which was very satisfying, especially since I didn't have to take anything else apart :)
My kids were very pleased with building this, but it occurred to us that the missiles on the vehicle, while very impressive in the way they spring out when the cabin is moved (see review and the action features in this youtube video) could do with some more "actionizing".
So I designed these two parts for the underside of the wings, one for each side. The wings still flip open as they should, but now there is a flick missile there for the entire family to enjoy :D

I hope you like this - it is a great set regardless!
