    It isn't. They're two pieces of plastic held together by four screws. Open the chest and you should see them. You'll need to also remove the grey bits atop the shoulder pylons, which just pop off.

    After quite a bit of nervous fiddling, I was finally able to disassemble and rebuild by Sovereign's shoulder thanks to the replacement parts from Fanstoys customer service. After all these years, this is the very first time that I have ever needed to rebuild and replace parts on one of my Transformers. I am so impressed with the engineering behind this particular figure. Now I get to transform it for the first time! o_O 

    Fanstoys as a company is simply amazing. They didn't have a lift a finger to help me, but they did anyway. I can't say enough good things about them, or all of the spectacular figures of theirs which I own. They have climbed to the very top of my respect list for 3rd party offerings.

    Maybe they'll rerelease him when they get closer to releasing their Cyclonus and Scourge within the next 4 to 5 years. :lol

    Yeah they're good like that. I had a messed up Scoria that I waited 3 years to ask for help with because I didn't know you WOULD actually get help. God knows TT won't help you if you bought a broken toy. They sent me a new 2/3 of the bot from the top down. Hard to beat customer service like that.

    That's never happening.
    Galvatron beats the crap out of springer. Because he is the mighty Galvatron. :)

    Finally got this dude :) 
    I paid extra for him but since it was my birthday gift I didn't mind.
    Ordered through robotoybase since they were the only shop to have him. My bust for waiting so long.
    I haven't transformed him just yet but out the box he's GRAND!
    Great quality and paint is fantastic.

    Be careful when trying to rotate the neck piece. I think it's not uncommon for the screw holding the front and back halves of it together to be too short, thus leaving the shaft potentially vulnerable to breaking. Oh, and you may wish to file the shoulder clips just slightly; they are a bitch to get in and out right out of the box.

    IMG_3841.JPG I got my sovereign out to play with today. It was my 2nd time transforming him. 1st time he kicked my ass. I put him on the shelf and didn't dare attempt to switch modes again. It was so much more enjoyable. Everything being broken in a little makes the world of difference

    Looks like he was trying to give Springer a wedgie and Springer took offense. Some robots have no sense of humor.

    it's so interesting how you made megs and galvy look the same size. hard to believe that megs mp has that same bulkiness as the Sovereign. then again, I don't own that MP I only own Sovereign. (megs is just too damned expensive. I just can't swing it for 1 dude)
