Articulate DotM Shockwave's Head

Hello Gang,

Most of us (maybe all) know that the head of DOTM is sitting on a balljoint. Ok, fine - and all of us who knows that, knows too, that his head has a lack of articulation 'cause his neck and his chin hinder Shockwave to look up, down or sloping his head like a cute dog!

This is before you do the modification:






Not really much you see!


So I decided to give him his articulation back:










Much better I think!


All you need is a screwdriver and a file.

File of the marked parts, but round down the edges for better and "fluent" articulation, and [don't] file too much, 'cause you could damage the balljoint mount inside the head:






Final result:






The same thing could be done with the head of DotM Skyhammer for better looking up, but especially for looking down! It's your choice!

Have fun
