    Hmmm... I don't remember mine giving me any trouble. I have the 20th Anniversary version though... maybe the new DVD version is glued.

    Hey... you get to see Prime's secret mouth if you disassemble the head! :)

    For DVD Prime's head, the pin holding his two "antennae" together needs to be removed. The pin runs from one side to the other through the center of a horizontal "tube" section which is all one piece with the left antenna. The right antenna is just a shorter piece that caps over it on the side with the pin's head.

    What I did was drill through the plastic of the left antenna side right through the center of the circle. I used a 2.5 or 2.75mm bit in a pin vise. It's just a layer with a round cavity behind it of 2.8mm diameter. When I drilled through, I could see the other end of the pin.

    This seems like a fairly clean method which lets you tap the pin out. Unfortunately, I did not have a proper implement with which to do this so I just got impatient and clipped the plastic part behind Prime's face that holds his head on the ball joint of the neck. =) (Don't do that, btw, if you want to keep your head.)
