    ehh not really, good luck with the pins in the dino mode head, you have to take it apart to get the head out.

    i removed the head twice without messing with the dino head or pins, once just used some long needle nose pliers and removed the head by just pulling it forward, it is on a mushroom peg so just slides off, also removed it a second time with some thin picture frame wire, just thread it behind the robot head, i wrapped it twice, making sure to be in the middle of head clear of the mushroom peg and just pull it off.

    This is where i'm at. slag is done i think. painted the horns, dino jaw, dino eyes, red bot head, knees, striped thighs, and painted the combiner peg black and red (though u dont see the red). swoop is getting there. painted the head, jaw of dino mode, thighs, biceps/shoulders, and working on knees, dino toes and shins. 20180205_210145.jpg 20180205_210152.jpg 20180205_210334.jpg 20180205_210416.jpg 20180205_210420.jpg 20180205_210452.jpg 20180205_210458.jpg 20180205_210521.jpg

    ended up getting duplicates of slag who i will use as slug and swoop as strafe. i like the original color scheme and they are different enough to be different characters but i needed my G1

    So I started my version this morning. I tried pulling the head off using string, but my peg was super tight.

    I thought I could get away with just removing the dino head pin, but the base that the robot head is pegs onto is attached to the dino head in two places. So then came the jaw! And yeah, my head was super tight on that mushroom peg! But now my robot head is soaking in solution, and I'll start the rest when it's clean. I hope this helps anyone else attempting this mod!

    those pins were a D in the B for sure. and yes the head is tight on the mushroom peg. As others have pointed out the nose seems to have stress marks, probably from putting the head on.

    Does the stripped away red plastic look odd against the other painted parts? (or at least the red on the rest of the body)

    no, the red on the body and the red on the head are both exactly the same. body isn't painted red, its red plastic too.

    yeah if the head doesn't just pop right off its an absolute bitch to get out. though i got lucky and the pins on mine were fairly easy to remove. the hard part for me was actually getting the head off the mushroom! punched myself in the thigh when it finally gave way and gave myself a bruise trying to pull the SOB off! lol
