    I did this mod a very long time ago and now am finally posting it. It's really quite simple actually and I like the look over the factory look and the blade has a better function purpose (kinda like Movie Blackout in a sense, which is what this character is in progress to be anyway...hint...)

    Anyway, so I just unscrewed the back off Skyhammer and then this allowed me to unscrew his blades. I then installed a flush forearm magnet, a recessed/flush chest magnet, and a magnet to the blades from inside his chest cavity. The blades work exactly like factory but give you an additional alternate choice of how to use them :) 

    Note: you do forfeit the placement peg hole for the other arm cannon, but I just pegged them into Skyhammer's back as shown.

    Thanks guys, it really is a easy, easy job and only requires a small philips screwdriver, 3 rare earth magnets (about 1/4" diam) and some good quality plastic welder like devcon.
