    I know, way late to this party. I didn't get it when it came out, and then I never saw it anywhere. And then, one magically appeared! IMG_5356.JPG IMG_5357.JPG IMG_5358.JPG IMG_5359.JPG IMG_5360.JPG

    How did you remove the turret pieces from the arms and did you move them to another area or just leave them to the side? also the main barrel.

    The turret pieces are attached to the arm by 2 things, a screw and a hinge. I removed the screw first to allow the turret pieces are articulate separate from the arm itself. Despite this, the turret will still try to articulate with the arm. Bend the elbow to 90 degrees and then pry at the turret piece. Eventually it will pop away from the arm. When that happens, bend it back to straight while keeping the arm bent. It will try and stay with the arm, and it will feel like the hinge is going to break, but eventually it will give and snap back with a pop. At this point, cut the plastic below the pin, but not close enough to free the pin or you'll be in trouble. cut both sides and boom, your free. and they still peg into the arms
    As for the turret, I just cut it off in a spot where I can reattach it with sticky tack if I need to

    Ok I lied. The turret pieces fit back on the arm, but you need something to hold it there
