I decided it was time to stop putzing around and finally put my TR Galvatron through a little bit of surgery As I'm still searching for a pin long enough to create the head swivel and make the transformation all-inclusive, I decided to start with removing the nosecone, an articulation-restricting back-weighing annoyance, and replacing it with an improvised fin fixture. I started by removing the pin that attached the nosecone to the collar area. It was surprisingly easy, a thumbtack was able to push it out. Unfortunately the same could not be said for the pin that kept the backfin and cockpit canopy attached, that thing would NOT come out. After enough frustration, I took some nail clippers to the canopy and tore it apart to get the pin out. I wasn't going to keep the nosecone anyway. After checking the size of everything, I realized the swivel-housing of the nosecone was the ideal mount for the fin fixture, so I used the nail clippers to carve the housing out, then sanded the excess away (it didn't take long at all, just rubbed it along a strip of sandpaper on my desk surface, the plastic is surprisingly easy to sand down) Once that was done, I pushed the second pin back in, used a pair of bolt/wire cutters to chop off the excess, then used the sandpaper to remove what was left outside the housing. Presently I'm using Gorilla Glue to affix the fin fixture to the nosecone's original housing, but I've got no confidence that'll last, so I'm going to look for a drill bit I can use to drill a hole into the fixture to keep it secured. I'm still looking for a pin long enough to modify the head to get rid of the Titan Master gimmick. If I can succeed at that, I'll be sure to document it here. For the record, yes I already have applied Fakebuster83's cannon adapter from Shapeways, and painted it using the Purple Elmers paint pen from Wal Mart. I recommend ordering it in purple polished plastic, because the rough plastic ends up being porous enough to absorb the paint, and the mixture of the two shades of purple results in an ideal shade for Galvatron. I would not recommend FUD for this, it only creates more work . And yes, it can still transform after this. If you decide to try it yourself based on this story, my best advice is to make sure there's still enough clearance in the collar area to allow the cannon to attach when affixing the fin fixture to the old nosecone housing.
