    This may not be the right place, but since it's in regards to a kitbash I intend to do, maybe it is.

    Is his torso cannon a part of the actual transformation, or is there a way it could be removed and a new torso sculpted over the hole without interfering with the TF process.

    also, how much clearance does his head have during transformation and in vehicle mode?

    well, you could gut the innards, but you can cover it with the boot panel anyway

    From the looks of this picture

    It looks like Wreckage's head is almost the same size as Swindle's. Is it really? Would Swindle still work with Wreckage's head?

    Part of the cannon is also a large part of his alt mode. The gun itself could be gouged out but taking out the entire piece would remove pretty much 1/3 of his rear end in car mode.

    As for the head, it's got a decent amount of space and shouldn't be too hard to swap out.

    I'll probably just take out the actual cannon barrel, since it's the only problem I have with the mold. A big honkin' gut gun is cool and all, but really limits the repaint possibilities, since they're always going to have a big honkin' gut gun no matter what you make out of the rest of him.

    It isn't. His head size is pretty standard, you might have better luck with Brawl.

    I don't completely follow you. Is Wreckage's head too big, too small, what?

    It is standard size for a deluxe, meaning it is too big for Swindle. Brawls however might be small enough.
