    Aside from annoying the living shit out of me by falling off everytime i transform him do the missles serve any other purpose? if not they are getting glued in place

    No purpose that I know of.

    Just glue them in place yourself.

    I'm curious...is it easy to switch the right saw-like arm? I'm thinking of picking 2 of him to do the switch.

    my friend found a fun use for it-turn his head, put the end in his mouth, and have him hold it-walah! Cigar

    All over the place, but here it is again:

    It's not really EASY, but it's not super hard as long as you're careful and constantly check your work as you go along.

    Surprised the missiles are frequently falling off for you. Mine seems to hold them securely in the clips (especially if the slots in them are lined up), and they don't fall out unless the arm is smacked against something pretty hard.

    Peaugh - Bulkhead looks so much better with both claw-hands! What are the things I must look out for when exchanging hands and what are the tools need? Example, screw-driver etc?

    im gonna try unscrewing his arms and taking that whole missle holder thing off entirely, they stick out too much, shouldnt be there, and are ugly.

    You can take off a little black disk that holds the missile holders in place and then you can just take em out then put them back on

    Screwdriver, hobby knife/dremel (takes longer with the hobby knife, but you get a little more precision), maybe some superglue in case you cut something a little too big.

    He has them untransformed, notice the wheels are still out. To get that look don't transform the legs except for swinging them down
