As I pondered here, I decided to have a go at removing the attack claw gimmick from the Deluxe Payload fig. As cool as the idea of the gimmick was, the ridiculous shaft protruding from his back made me decide it wasn't worth the sacrifice. It was a pretty simple mod, that I can easily replace if I choose (at least until I do something permanent to the torso, which I will be). Remove the front bullbar (this is only plugged on the end of the shaft, and may well have fallen off several times for you already). Unscrew the crotchplate and open it up. This reveals the waist connector, which has a screw running through it. Remove this screw, and you can replace the crotch and re-seal it. Now the shaft isn't connected to the torso. Then unscrew the four corner screws on the underside of the torso. Gently prise apart the torso (I found this difficult, as it appeared to be glued at one corner, but as long as you don't apply too much pressure, it'll be fine), and pull out the shaft from the claw end. As you get to the end, you may to wiggle the shaft a bit (stop laughing at the back! ) to get the various protrusions through the oddly-shaped gap (at the end, I needed to rotate the shaft 180 degrees to get it out), but it shouldn't be too much trouble. Screw the torso back together and you're done! It leaves a few holes, but nothing that can't be worked out. Most noticably, there's a gap in the front grille in vehicle mode. I'll probably extend the foot top plates with styrene to fix that. And of course, there's a gaping hole in the abdomen where the claw gimmick was stored. I'll be replacing the frontplate of the claw (as in the first pic), and probably using styrene again to cover over any remaining holes. Yay! Payload can get through doors again!
