    Alright the time is ticking away, and I'm somewhat close to getting my dad a great deal on a complete G1 Metroplex for Christmas, chrome thigh version. Only thing is...his one head antennae is broken off. Can anyone help me out in confirming a way to replace the head??? I dont believe the entennae are removable are they? Is there an easy way to take it apart and replace the head? I know the answer is probably no, but I'm so close and this broken antennae is killing me, and I'm not THAT well versed in G1 toy knowledge to know. Can anyone offer some insight?

    IIRC Metroplex is pretty easy to take apart, I did it years ago though.

    IIRC you have to undo the screws on his back and his upper torso will come apart leaving the waist and hips intact. From there I believe his head is easily taken out and replaced. You should be able to take the head apart and replace the broken antenna too... but I don't remember taking my Metroplexes head apart.
