    I'm having a hard time getting WFC Megatron's head off his body. It's screwed together and appears to be 3 or 4 individual pieces. Obviously I removed the screw, I'm just having a bitch of a time getting the pieces apart. I'd prefer to keep the head intact and undamaged.

    Anyone have any tips?

    Would hot water also work? I'd imagine it would...

    I made a second topic in the toy section since this board doesn't seem to get as much traffic. Brr-icy said he's done it a few times and had to take an exacto to literally cut it at the seam. I did this and barely got it to work. It was a pain in the ass.

    the ones i have removed have all been glued. I used a small screwdriver to pry them apart.

    I tried that too. It was at the point that I think the screwdriver bent a little.

    I was going to swap it and FoC Brawls but once I got Megatrons head off I learned the two heads are incompatible with the others bodies.

    It was for a custom I'm working on.
