    Well, I'm about to buy a Leader Bulkhead and the only thing that's bothering me are the panels on his arms with the missles. So I was wondering if there is a screw or pin that can be removed from the arm/inside of arm that will let the panels come off.

    Thanks!

    I removed the missiles from my Bulkhead, but not the panels. If I recall correctly, you just have to take out a few screws, remove the missile assembly, and the arm goes back together pretty easily.

    If you remove the arm panels, you won't have a proper vehicle mode anymore. I think those panels may be attached to the arms. You may need to remove them with a knife or Dremel tool. I've never tried removing parts with a knife, so I have no advice to offer there.

    simple screws and pins, no knife required. might i suggest removing the missile rack, then putting the panel back on? otherwise it won't look right at all.

    Very easily done, I'll post pics tomorrow after school

    Steps:
    1. Unscrew arms

    2. Now when you take the arms apart it will be hard, that's because there is a pin connecting the parts.

    3. When opened the panel is connected with pins to the arms, it is very easy to pull the panels off.

    4. Put it back together and you're done.

    Awesome!

    If it isn't too much to ask, you think you can try to take the pictures now? It's cool if you say no, I'm just anxious, that's all.
