My suggestion: This is an awesome figure and this is not really necessary, or, if you are nervous to try it, don't. You can use a model glue.

thanks to some of the guys over at ssc.com: Soak the head in hot water for about 5-10 minutes and use a larger flat tool to gently pry the mask off.

Here is the original:

the upper part with the visor trimmed down:

the parts of the head I trimmed down to help the top of the bio lay better:

sitting the top part back on first:

Cool, thanks for posting this. B)

Hopefully we'll be seeing more mods of this bad boy soon. (if they ever get them shiped )

The helmet mod is way much better and accurate, but that might ruin the value if it doesn't match to all the others out there on stocked shelves. I will have to think if I want to do that to mine or not.

Damn!!...I just had to see this post!! Now it will bug the hell out of me till I fix it. I think while I have it off I will see how it fits over the closed mouth one,and maybe make one for it?

and new netting:)


the lights are a great touch.....I am working on those right now..
Man Encline... where have you been?

Way cool on the mod though man, I am sure a lot of people will use this as a reference. B)

As for me, I ordered the closed mouth, but I hope to try to get all three. Ugh... that will be expensive.

Haha...man, I have been waiting for this fig to get back to working on a pred! I stay so busy with transformers...plus I was in Atlanta for two months..found out my mom has Dementia...that is a messed up illness.... so I am back in my shop..

I hope this does help..it is not necessary at all, but for those who are not afraid, just a little bit of work can go a long way...

Thanks dude! I am about to upload the vid now..

I had absolutely no idea what you guys were talking about regarding the gap until I watched the video. ...maybe I shouldn't admit that, but anyway the video is awesome. I'm anxiously awaiting mine to arrive.

P.S.

With a crew of drunken pilots! We're the only air ship pirates! *propeller sounds* awesome.

I'd like to see someone make a mask for the close mouth one just to be able make it as good as the hottoys one that I have. Just a thought. Mine come tomorrow can't wait to see them. I'm sure someone will.
