    So I ordered a United Blurr so that I can swap out all the alt mode pieces onto my Generations Blurr. I like the Gen. bot mode much more than the United (looks way too plain and actually less G1) but the alt. mode looks great. I've run into a dilemma though. The hubcaps on the United figure are painted silver whereas the Gen. figure's aren't. The leg pieces will swap out with no problem, but the arm hubcap pieces are on a big pin. Does anyone know how I can remove and reassemble these pins? If not, It's silver sharpie time, which really isn't bad if I have to do that. Feedback please, thanks.

    I ran into the exact same problem.

    Barring yanking out the wheels, I've found that a silver Sharpie is a 95% match to the silver colour and texture used on the United version's hubs. So I just swapped the whole arm out and painted up the wheel.

    Results posted here.

    I'd be interested to see your United/Generations customisation after you're done. Pics please!
