    You would have to unscrew Barricadetorso to take the head off. Then you're gonna have to do some trimming at the base of the head. Don't give up. I think you have a cool idea.

    Neat idea! I like how the simple change of feet improves the heck out of that mold so much... How does it affect the transformation though?

    All mine in Virginia have them..

    You should be looking for this one:
    4.8V MiniMite Cordless / Model: 4.8V MiniMite Cordless

    Your hardware store probably has it it walmart doesn't. It's not the greatest dremel ever (only a high and a low setting), but it's a great entry level dremel, and certainly good enough for some customization.


    I can tell you this much.. If you can find it in your walmart it's $19.99
