    You could still have it transform. Stow the head in the old cockpit, transform him like usual, point his arms in the direction the gator head would usually go, look at it from what would normally be the back and bam, some kind of generic space ship. You could even attach the old tail to serve as a nose cone.

    No I can't, the pin to remove the neck for the gator head just absolutely refused to come off, so I ended up using a dremel to remove the hinge mount entirely.

    Could I get a picture of the back then? I don't really see how that could limit what I suggested. On a similar note, pins that refuse to come out suck, especially when you're like me and spend more time trying to fix old figures than customize them because you can't just cut them open.

    Love it. Give him some vertical wings and you’re set. Doesn’t matter if you have to cut it up a third time to keep people happy. Looks good and you’re doing what you want

    Couldn't find a good acrylic neon yellow paint (there's only a Michaels around for 100 miles around me and they don't carry anything good) so I had to resort to some testors enamel, which I haven't used in years and am definitely not looking forward to, hoping for the best

    meanwhile getting the tough part down: cleanly painting the eyes
