The minute I saw Black Megatron I said: "That's isn't Megatron! It's Razorclaw!". Really, the paintwork screamed "Predacon Leader" far more than "Megatron in fancy suit". So I bought him as my first Alternity figure and before the night was over, he was in pieces. Now, as I doubt many people have taken apart an Alternity figure before, here's some hints. There are loads of pins but also quite a few well hidden screws. From his right side of the torso, there's one near the front, just below the body of the car, that requires the side panel to be folded in the back position (car mode) to access. Then there's another one, partly hidden by his right shoulder, deep inside a hole. These are the only thing holding his torso together. When you remove these and pull on the metal sides of his torso, lots of things will probably fall out, so watch where they're supposed to go. The middle part of the bumper is simply held between the halves. The head cover pins between them. Then there's a small siliding piece which grips into his ab cover, which is folded under the car in car mode. Note how they fit together before you pull them out. With that done, I removed Megatron's head but slicing along the gap between the front and back (cover) parts. There are four plastic pins holding it together and they're glued, so you might have to cut them. The light piping is glued to the face and the balljoint is between these two. As I didn't care too much to save the head, I just wedged a blade between and tore them apart. Then I replaced the head with a Classic Grimlock head with the bottom post sawn off and a 4 mm hole drilled exactly where it was. It fits perfectly with side to side articulation. I wanted to keep as much as possible of the original paintwork as it fit that well to begin with, but I added more gold to his shoulders and painted over the dull bronzish gold with a burnished gold. All in all, a very easy mod to make a weird repaint into the character it screamed to be.
