Can anyone tell me how to get these pins out? Is there an easy way?
How To Remove Pins and Rivets
Basically hammer them out with a nail and pull the pin out with pliers.
Tried that on every pin and I'm just slowly destroying the pins. Why didn't they make this a clip on part?!!! Is so maddening, especially when most of the current transformers can't sTOP popping apart at every joint.
Don't know if you can get the pin out the traditional way, but there's another method:
I agree this is the best method. Only thing other than that I can possibly think of, and I suck as a customizer, is try a soddering iron.
I tried a third option; it was way easier and I'm really happy with the results..
Same here. After a few attempts, I stopped as I didn't want to destroy the toy. I really don't like the wings design on Megatron.
Just get a Hegemon instead of trying to work with your classics Megatron. The gun mode will look terrible without the wings.
just cut them off. if you cant get to the pin on the back of his waist just cut it off. I used my dremel to cut the pin out of the plastic after I decided that the pin somehow offended me. As long as you cut just where the pin is you can attach the wings when you transform megatron, in fact its easier to transform him this way. The clips on the inside of the wings will hold them in place in gun mode.
It could be that the OP prefers the look of Henkei Megatron over Hegemon. I mean, the latter isn't for everyone.
I butchered my Henkei so badly trying this mod. I also finally gave up on pin surgery and just cut the damn things off. Worth it in the end, as long as you don't look at Megatron from behind. Which I'm given to understand is a problem with Hegemon as well.
