Master of Mix & Match
great work, mamblo: that's way better!
does the headdress fit well, with the drums relocated?

Thank you Charlie, I'll let you know once I will restore the head back in place. Looks like the drums won't be in conflict with the head's hood. I will update the picture asap.

Really good work on Sorceress wings. My figure had bit loose wings. If this operation was easy. I might do it too. Look like good solution. Care explain how you did this?

I feel ashame for my english however I'll try my best to make myself clear:
Basically the operation is pretty easy the hardest part is to cut the drums off the shoulders because they are very tough having a inner peg.
Remember to remove the head from the figure in order to save it from scratches.
PICTURES FOR PARTS IDENTIFICATION
FYI the bottom wings won't be rotating anylonger. They will be stuck/glued into the back wings. WHile middle and top wings will be rotating. You still may find another way to keep all of them movable along the way though......
Cut off the peg from the shoulders ends. Remove all the wings from the 2 pegs.
Relocate and glue the right and left bottom wings by the connecting ring (see the picture for parts identification) onto the top of the central wing. Then insert the midlle wing into the bottom wing ring followed by the top wing. Glue the tip of the peg to the back wing by plugging it all the way throug the three wing rings. While the glue is getting dry dry keep the middle and top wings rotating so they won't get glued thogheter.
Hope this is clear enogh for you.

Nice! You have proven that this modification will look fine.

Thank you, Mamblo. No worries. English is not my native language. Finnish is my native language.

This looks great! I'm only concerned about the glue holding in place. I'm contemplating drilling out some holes in her back to fit the pegs into.

I wonder how difficult it would be to insert a new peg through the wing rings and into the back. I'll have to experiment with my extra Sorceress (that I bought just to do this kind of thing) and some styrene rods. I think the trick will be finding the right diameter styrene rod.
