    (Not sure if this belonged here or in the Customs forum)

    Just wondering if anyone has removed the mutant head flaps from BWX Dinobot and/or Rhinox? Easy to do? Are they held in with a pin? I can't tell at the moment. Any advice?

    They're not held in by a pin at all. So they're quite removable. Just a bit difficult to remove though.

    Dinobot's are easy to remove; just yank them. You may need to unscrew Rhinox's head if you want to avoid stressing the plastic but it's still easy to remove.

    Difficult as in just apply a hell of a lot of force and they'll eventually pop off? Or difficult as in you can seriously risk breaking stuff?

    Difficult as in both. I've had friends use excessive force and the results have varied.

    Some of them used too much and broke the pieces. Others had luck.
    I've removed Rhinox's face mask by sliding thin styrene pieces between the hinges of the flaps.

    MasterofPuppets' way is the best way to go.

    You might risk stressing/breaking the mask pieces, but that's not a big loss unless you're saving them for something.

    I yanked 'em, trashed 'em, and shaved off the mounting points on the head for a somewhat more show-accurate look (and built a 'chaingun O'doom' out of his weapon and part of Cheetor's)

    Success! Dinobots pull right off with enough force and Rhinox's slip right out if you unscrew his head.
