    Planning on using his head for a custom, but need to split his plastic head and translucent blue light pipping, but no amount of prying seems to work. Help!

    I thought he had a ball-jointed head?

    He does, no screw, just the light pipping and the rest of the head, which is what I'm trying to separate. Tried cutting along the seams, no movement.

    Hasbro seems to like using some kind of superglue when putting screwless heads together, I just used a tiny screw diver to pry open BH Primes head, did some damage to it but some putty fixed it right up.

    When the time comes, I keel you last! :lol 

    That's what I'm afraid of, don't want to break the eyes off of the light pipping. :/

    Blowdry it until the glue melts. That worked for me with leader Ironhide.
