    Just wondering how easily the talfin is removable? The main wings are easy to remove and im tempted to de-plane-ify my TR Optimus

    Are you talking about the tailfins themselves, or the entire piece they're attached to? I have done that too, but in a minimalist, non permanent way. I kept the piece they are attached to for alt mode ascetics. Although, from what I've seen, it doesn't look too much harder than unscrewing the chest and taking it out. I hope I was helpful.

    I was talking about the whole tail assembly. Its not pinned in but I wanted to know if it could be removed without unscrewing the body...and if you do need to unscrew the body are there any glued parts or is it straightforward

    I have not taken the figure apart; yet I probably will sometime. Related note, I did slightly unscrew the screw on the door for the Titan master storage, and the tailfin piece became a little loose.

    There are four screws keeping together Optimus' chest. image.jpeg I took them all out, and when I was trying to pull the figure apart, the tailfin piece fell out. image.jpeg I think the bottom half of his chest is glued, but I am not sure. I hope this was helpful to you.
