    I'm thinking of getting a retail Swindle so that I can give his head to G2 Swindle. Purple goggles and all. How easy would it be to pop his head off?

    In a related note, how are his fists attached? I'm hoping for a Shapeways kit that gives us fingerguns.

    Most people can't even find the joint his head is connected on. It's a swivel, though.
    The hands and forearms are all one molded piece.

    If it's on a swivel, would it be possible to just unscrew the back of head? Surely there must be some way someone got it on the body.

    The entire head piece is mounted to the body with a pin. The head looks like it's two pieces, but there's not screw or anything- I think it just snaps on. Getting that pin out will be extremely challenging as well given the shape of the chest plate.

    ... so in other words, I'm getting some purple paint. Man, why is G2 Swindle's visor orange?

    Of course, that begs the question of why it's a visor at all, but this isn't the place for that...

    Thanks for all the help!
