    I've got 2 Deluxe Bees - Movie Premium and ROTF Deluxe

    I want to put the arms from Premium onto ROTF, to get rid of the stupid gun while still having the better car mode...

    Swapping the ball joints at the shoulder was easy, but I can't figure out how to remove the roof panels from the arms (the colours dont quite match as premium had a naff metallic paint job).

    I have removed both screws from each arm, but the arm parts still don't want to seperate. Anyone know if there is some kinda latch or glue inside? I don't want to force it and break it. I somehow doubt I can just pull the roof parts off?

    Thanks for reading :)

    You just need to remove the arm screws so the arm can be split and the panel will come off, my TFTM had no glue.

    Turns out TFTM had no glue, but ROTF did. All worked out pretty well in the end, I finally have a decent bumblebee (imo) :)

    I tried to do the same but then decided to just swap heads. Let the ROTF BB with the gun arm have the battle mask and the premium have the new head.
