    I'm planning on making a repainted figure and I want to replace the current head with one from a spare Robot Hero I have. I know the RH heads are rubbery and the regular ones are plastic so it won't be a simple pop and swap. Can anyone give me some pointers on how I can remove the RH head without damaging it and how I can go about creating a socket in it for the ball joint on the current figure.

    if anyone's interested in looking at the actual figures, I want to put an RH Soundwave head on Universe Hound.

    If there is a better soundwave head that's near the correct scale and not too hard to obtain then I could use that information as well.

    Any help at all would be really appreciated. THANKS FOR READING!

    OK... so, let's assume for a minute that I don't have a dremmel. Is there another good way to make that hole in the head?

    Oh wow if your making a universe soundwave from hound thats great. I had that idea as well. I picked up an extra hound after seeing the swindle chest mod on hound. I am still new though so I am glad someone else might be doing it first.

    Oh and I think the RH head will work great best of luck. Dremmels at Walmart for cheap I think they work fine.
