I re-read your original post, and realized i had a dyslexia moment.
and got 2 of the sentences backwards.
so, ya, never mind that part, lol.

As for alternate heads, i have extra classics sideswipe heads (in dark blue, and black, as well as the classics style breakdown heads in dark blue, & red. & a black Sunstreaker head.

All of them are from a DIY sideswipe model kits.
if you want one, just let me know. all i ask is you cover the postage.

With difficulty is the answer, if you take the back of the head off and the light piping out you should be able to see two little tabs of yellow either side of the head, these are the visor, poke these out and the visor comes off, it's difficult to do though as they are re-enforced with glue.

Could alway get GIMP, which is free to use... or GIMPShop, which makes the UI a lot more like Photoshop if you've ever used that.

To go even further with the different look in bot mode you can transform the feet wrong on one of them. Simply put the small part (the heel) in front and the 2 pronged toes in back. Not my idea by the way but I've tried it and I think it looks pretty good.

The feet on the drone kit really ought to be available separately, they look to improve the mould tenfold without going through a complete leg transplant as I did.

A simple neutral background you can make is a white poster sheet. If you have a tabled backed up to a wall, tape the paper in a curved arc on the wall/table. Put the figure there, shoot to heart's content.

Using Photoshop... take a white balance "eye dropper" in a Levels filter, click the white board... and more often than not all white balance is taken care of quite nicely.

For example, see sig picture... looks like a proper light box shot... but nope... used the above mentioned tactic. (And a few minor tweaks on saturation, but not much at all really.)
