    BBI head removal?

    Howdy guys, I need a little help.......I'm wanting to change a few headsculpts on some of the Freedom Force figs......what's the best and safest way to remove the heads?

    I've removed Dragon headsculpts in the past by using a hair dryer and slowly heating the head up and popping it off......do BBI headsculpts come off in the same manner??? Please post if you can help me out.Thanks, Brian

    GungHo, the bbi heads are "ball and socket". after you pull the head off, take a hair dryer and heat up the neck post and just pull it off. bbi isnt like dragon, bbi is "stupid proof".

    I had a bbi head which needed removal, it was made of hard plastic, it had a mask over it...pretty weird. I smashed it with a hammer.
