    Making Stratos look up ; altering joints

    I made my Stratos look up. I altered the hole where his neck goes in.



    What do you think? Now he can look forward when he is flying.

    Not sure if He-Bro used the same method, but I'm planning to do mine by sicing away a slit in the back of the neck, which will allow the neck peg to tilt further back, thus allowing the figure to look up like that. When I do that kind of mod, I just heat the plastic so it's easier to cut, and carefully slice with an exacto knife.

    I didn't alter the back of the head at all. Basically all I did was take a small dremel tool grinding stone, put it in the hole while it was spinning and angled it toward the front of the head, so the entrance hole is the same size, but the stem can now move forward in the head allowing the head to tilt back.
