    So I'm trying to customize my Classics Starscream and it is indeed proving difficult. Trying to remove the pin from his head and that is no easy task, long and grueling it is. Anyone else get the Classics Coronation set from TFSource?

    No, because I didn't want to permanently alter my Henkei Starscream, or buy a repaint.

    Well does anyone have any tips on hammering the pin out? Does it just take as long as I think it seems like it does? I'm not putting the Gobot head on, I'm actually swapping my Henkei and Classics Starscream heads. I'm trying to make my ideal Starscream.

    Soldering iron and a pin punch is the way to go.

    Thanks for the input guys, especially Nemesis Predaking for the thread on removing pins, very helpful. Fixing my Starscream up is starting to come along.

    I just got mine Thursday. I've field tested everything but the wing and head upgrades on my Classics Skywarp. :thumb 

    Here, here! I just won a Henkei Starscream on eBay and it will soon join my 25A/Universe 2.0 Starscream in delivery. I couldn't decide between the two, but like Henkei's darker red chest (as opposed to "vermillion" on Hasbro version.) If I ever got the Classics version, I'd consider swapping nosecone tips, cockpits (at least with the Henkei version) and putting the Leader-1 head (maybe) on what's left.
    If I really want to celebrate "alive for more than 2 minutes" Starscream, I'll get more parts for my Type 1, Variant 1 original. (1984 SS still needs a Right smooth-bottomed, small post tail wing, 1 long missile and 2 short missiles.)

    I would like to fix the rear wheel struts on Cybertron Ransack but I have never been able to remove the pins so far (didn't try the soldering iron method though).
