    Hi. I have the Takara Evasion Mode Optimus, and the Evolutions 2-pack Optimus. The flame shoulders from the Takara version would look a lot better on the Evolution version, but they're not a simple pop-off ball joint. There's some ratcheting mechanism involved. I was thinking about boiling it to see if it would get pliable enough to pry off, but I'm not too eager to wreck the arms. Has anyone else tried to remove the shoulders? Is there a recommended technique?
