    I forgot to add the total width.
    That may help.
    First, cut out a square 4.5mm x 7mm and then do the angle cuts.

    it is not horribly difficult but there are two small pins where the two small green bits are behind the shoulders that have to be punched out and a screw inside the chest that has to be taken out. if you decide to get the pins out then I def recommend picking up a pin punch from home depot or another hardware store and punch it out from the inside of the figure. I also recommend watching the video tutorial on removing pins if you haven't before.

    If you are wearing down the RID optimus face mask area for the purpose of making a custom open face, I advise caution as I ran of um, plastic behind his mask much faster than I had anticipated, making what would be his face sort of a hole, which I gave up on and at some point, I am working on my own BH Prime figure, which is more work than usual based on my style, but WORTH THE EFFORT, hopefully it will be my first official posted radicon. Trying not to hype it up, but it was a lot of work.

    I think from what you said you are using RID OP head for it's mask rather than whittle a modded BH OP. Still, I thought it was worth mentioning since a extra drop of oomph made him look like, well now the mask would be handy.

    Also, I am really busy today, but I would LOVE it if someone would go back and count how many unique members said something along the lines of "I passed on this, but now I want one.", or "I thought it was a turd, but then you came along, and now I must carve a diamond from it!" or well, anything stating a desire to buy/mod BH OP. I think a total of those would be hilarious.

    In my opinion, it is a little simple, with little concern for where the arms end up, or how it much more than a simple spin, head flip, and as I'm writing this I realize that is a lot like G-1, and I can't hate that...but I treasure it for it's custom potential.

    Also on Amazon I swear I saw someone say it wasn't as clear as the First Edition OP on how it transformed. Meaning BHOP was more difficult than the insanely loveable perfectly executed and engineered greatness that is FE. Curious. Is this that trolling thing where people say things that enrage folks like us because it can't possibly be something anyone would ever say?

    I find that if you round every measurement it'll fit in the face better.
