    There is a screw under the light piping at the back of the head.
    Carefully pry that out & you should be good to go.

    I was about to ask the same question and a forum search turned up this thread. I see you never got an answer. I'm not able to get the lightpiping piece out of the back of his head either.

    I'm assuming it is, since it's clearly not balljointed, and there are are no visible screws or pins in either the head, nor the hinge panel it's mounted on. I've never actually tried to remove the head myself, though.

    It's either behind that piece, or it's just two pieces of plastic forced together by plastic peg-in-hole.

    Anybody have any suggestions for removing that lightpiping piece? It seems to be wedged or glued in pretty tight.

    i used an exacto to loosen up the blue eye pipping and then just unscrew. the top peg of the pipping may break off but friction will hold it. if yours is loose add a dab of glue.

    Tanks STP, you just made switching out the chest piece of Rodimus classics so much easier. (hinge on the 06 one broke so the BIS bot is going to donor now I know I can keep the head with the lightpiping.

    Intertestingly I don't think the BIS version has a screw in the back and that it's just held together by the peg since it was far harder to remove than the Classics version and thicker too.

    Ah, so the head is screwed together, and the lightpiping is fitted over the top? That's interesting... if a rather odd way to do it. :p

    Only on the older versions, on the BIS and presumably the Challenge for Cybertron version there is no screw under the piping.
