    I’ve done this before!

    Please read the following:

    You have to understand that gray pieces attached to the black shoulder are structured like this:
    • First, a swivel piece that connects the black shoulder and robot mode arm to the rest of the figure.
    • Second, a gray piece divided in two halves that hold the black shoulder together and allow it to swing back and forth.

    Both pieces are held together by a rivet.

    A) To remove the rivet, carefully…

    - Sand down the top of the gray swivel piece flat, then drill a hole in the middle where the end of the rivet is at.

    - Gouge out a “channel” on at the opposite end of the rivet.

    - Back at the top of the gray swivel piece, use a longer rivet and hammer to pound out/extract rivet.

    B) To separate the two halves of the second gray piece, all you have to do is use a small Philips-head screwdriver to remove the small screws holding them together.

    C) Now you can finally detach and split the black shoulder in half.
