    So, Shadow Scythe had me messing with SG Rodimus for the first time in ages. And it also led me to discover that my SG Rodimus cannot turn his head! At all! D:

    So far I've tried these things:
    -Carefully sliding an xacto around under his head, in case there was something gummed up
    -Putting him in the freezer for 30 minutes in case there was some glue or paint dried on the joint

    It's still stuck solid. Literally, he feels as though he doesn't even have a neck joint. I don't see any obvious disassembly points- anyone have any experience with the mold that has any ideas?

    Do you recall if it was like that before?
    I had a similar issue with one of my Classics Rodi.
    It ended up being a large piece of mold flash on the balljoint, that I had to shave off.
    Taking Rodi's head apart is a little tricky, you have to pry the light piping out (which is glued in place) carefully & then you will gain access to the screw that holds in 2 half's together.
    I don't know if your going to want to try that with a SG Rodi, but it's likely your best option.
