    Hello Gang,

    Most of us (maybe all) know that the head of DOTM is sitting on a balljoint. Ok, fine - and all of us who knows that, knows too, that his head has a lack of articulation 'cause his neck and his chin hinder Shockwave to look up, down or sloping his head like a cute dog!

    This is before you do the modification:

    Not really much you see!


    So I decided to give him his articulation back:

    Much better I think!


    All you need is a screwdriver and a file.

    File of the marked parts, but round down the edges for better and "fluent" articulation, and [don't] file too much, 'cause you could damage the balljoint mount inside the head:

    Final result:

    The same thing could be done with the head of DotM Skyhammer for better looking up, but especially for looking down! It's your choice!

    Have fun :)
