    Precisely why they should've put a little more work into it and included Starscream's wings, like the Optimus Prime statue a few years back (had the Starscream head, shoulder intakes, & wings).

    Head comes apart by removing three screws from the back.

    For Op-Ex, yeah, it's just a single screw in the back of the head. The head itself is ~7 parts. Each half of the head, the eyes, each antenna, and each swivel the antenna is on. Eight parts if you count the LED module.

    For Mp-44, yeah, as @Ace7782 said.

    I ordered a GM-17 Marker for the MP-44 KO and I planned to do the exact same thing to my OP-EX. The marker got in yesterday, I'm just waiting for my MP-44 KO to get in so I can do both sets of eyes at the same time.
    Looks great on your OP-EX, can't wait to fix the dead eyes on that one. By far my biggest complaint with the figure but easily fixable.

    Excellent recommendation, I have used it with the Extra head of the TE01 and the face of the Mirage TE03, waiting for my MP44 KO to arrive, the result is excellent.

    Just opened my copy. Fixed the ab crunch issue but I'm noticing there is just way too much play in the hip ratchets. They are so loose I'm having a hard time getting him to stand. Any ideas for a fix?

    I used GM-155 on my Furai IDW Megatron and it looks quite nice as well.

    For anyone trying their waist for the first time, you have to lift it from the front first? I have had no problems with my waist the tab is fine but I always lift the front since the back wont untab till the front is untabbed.
