    Anyone know how to get at the eyes in the non-combined robot mode? I dont want to experiment too much for fear of any damage.

    Does the face mask just pop off like the combined mode version?

    This is a scratch, not crack. But they still send you replacement.

    Are you blind? That's blatantly a crack.

    Has anyone tried to use the hair blower to remove the stressmark on the grey neck piece?

    After trying to get a sticker placed over the eyes of the combined bot, and having them just rip when pushing the eyes back into the head, I decided to just remove the eyes altogether and push through some red plastic bag material I cut off the top of a packet of Haribo sweets I just happened to have lying around.

    And it worked!

    Haribo, the saviour of Powermaster Prime! :lol 

    Its not ideal, and I may go back and get a more malleable red plastic bag material, as the Haribo material is quite hard, but it looks ok to the naked eye (the above pic is pretty close up mind), so will do for now.

    It's attached to the helmet with a small bit of adhesive, but it pop off easily for me to do some modding:

    File down on the rear of the eye piece:

    After (blurred, but the eyes now sits slightly deeper in the "sockets")

    Also, found out that you can pull up on his head to raise his neck joint a bit more for more head posability (which wasn't in the instructions)

    The combined head I didn't do much modding, and since I wasn't planning on using the LED gimmick I just painted the transparent piece with some metallic blue. Works better and has less of that 'bulge out eyes' look that the chrome-finish eyes had, IMO

    Finally merged him into Super Ginrei and this thing is impressively massive. He’s the type of boy I’d take to go Predator hunting.

    Thanks for showing this! I was wondering how to get at non-combined Ginrai's eyes for painting. Combined mode head also looks 1000x better with non-chrome eyes. Well done.

    Oh did you really mean to say why does he have a 3D printed head that looks more accurate to the toon?

    My collection, my toys, I can alter them to look the way I want them to look.

    Thanks, DA. Gives me a much clearer picture of what I just got myself into when I ordered Grassor and Graviter.
