    Forgive me mods, but I could really use more advice.

    I'm trying to get WFC Megatron's head apart so I can see if I can swap it with FoC Brawls. But I can't get the freaking thing apart! Obviously I unscrewed it but the pieces just won't come apart. I even gave it several soaks in hot water.

    Help?

    cut with an exacto or dremel, small exacto cuts along the seam will sometimes loosen it. i've removed i don't know how many now, only way i could find with salvaging it is the small exacto cuts

    Drat... Why is this thing such a pain?

    Thanks Brr-icy. I tried your method. It worked but man I wish that had been easier... And cleaner.

    Yeah, its almost as if Megatron's face was forged in the pits of Kaon, nearly inseparable from its two emotions...

    It's the anger of only folding up into a wadded ball of plastic with a Bromo stuck on top. Looking forward to your custom Ryoku!

    Bad news is that I can't really swap the heads like I planned. Brawls is way too small and Megs is way too big one the others bodies. So after all that effort I put it back on...

    I tried to do some things to make it not look like Megatron but I'm hoping the paint will tip it over. I made a tiny visor for it. I also sand the top down a bit.

    If only I could figure out how to make his chest look different but I'm out of ideas and have limited resources... On the plus side, I LOVE how the altered cannon turned out.
