    Just wanted to give a nod to @transformer_78 for his neck upgrade. It fits perfect and gives Optimus an actual neck instead of the head sitting on torso look. Thanks man.

    Another shout out to @transformer_78 for the neck upgrades. Ordered two and both arrived super quickly!

    how tough was the installation on a scale from 1-10?

    I wasn't a big fan of the toon look but once I got this guy home and on the shelf he's a real show-stopper, I love this thing.

    No different than changing out the heads.

    1....if you swapped the original head for the v2 head, swapping the neck out is the next step. It’s held by a single screw... 1 to 2 minutes tops :)

    A negative 2. Unscrew, replace neck, re screw. Assemble head as normal.

    If it was a "negative" and so easy, you wouldn't have to replace it in the first place.

    After mucking around with the timeline so much, this is how Skynet starts now. Toy collectors get so lazy that manufacturers start designing toys that can replace themselves. And then they learn to replace us.
