    I just got this guy a few days ago, and I was extremely disappointed by his head. He couldn't see over his own hood! So, I decided to give him an extendable neck, while still being able to transform normally.

    After cutting off his head, drilling a couple holes, and adding the shaft from a nail, he can see over his own hood now, and can even look side-to-side! Small mod, but he no longer sucks.

    Nice spot-fix, dude! He looks a little more capable of doing battle now.

    It wasn't very hard, but cutting his head off right took care. It's molded right into the body and hinge that the hood swings on.
