    I've taken a few of them apart. First, take the chest pieces off. Now take the pins out holding the chest on. Then unscrew and he'll slide apart. If you aren't worried about the condition of E. prime, just break the hingepins.

    I said the wrong convoy in my first post. I need to fix Grand Convoy, so I need to be super careful with the pins when getting Grand Convoy apart since he's the keeper.

    I figures I had to get the pins out, but I was hoping there was some secret trick to getting him apart that would be easier and less hazardous to the appearance of Grand Convoy.

    Thanks!

    I'm not even sure if Jenny Craig could help Fattimus Prime! I guess he'll have to rely on you to perform liposuction here! :lol
