    Unscrew, then wedge a knife in between the cracks.

    I don't have this kit, but I was able to easily pop off the head. I pushed the head up and back away from the open side of the balljoint cup in the head slowly.

    Oh, I was thinking of the combined one.

    Wedge the two open. Yanking it off can indeed snap off the ball joint.

    Best way to put it on is to heat it up with a hair dryer first.

    I'm down to about 15 kits for my Thunderclash upgrade. If you're interested, I suggest order one soon. Only available on my website: Renderform Upgrade Kits – Renderform

    I'm planning to put up a bunch of new items for pre-order next week, so based on past sales statistics, these kits will probably be gone by next friday.

    For those wondering the exact difference with the Convention version... The helmet is a metallic blue color, compared to the straight blue on the original. And the red gem on the forhead is translucent with a silver back, giving it a striking appearance. The original version had this piece solid red. As well, the gold for the face and guns match, where as the gold on the original gun and face were different.

    You wouldn't happen to have any spare, single issue rifles from the original set, would you? I got the basic kit before but now I'm looking to upgrade TC to dual wielding.

    Thunderclash is one of my favorite CW pieces. Amazing what a little head and some guns and stickers will do for a guy... He'd be perfect if he had a Hyperdrive head for the combined mode.

    When is the next run of these expected to ship? I put an order in back in June but haven't seen any updates in a bit. I figured since we are now past TFCon, business may start to normalize once again.
