Remember what I said about Gonzo when I was in China...he barely shoots out of the cannon at all. Safety tests are more rigid than ever and that is the best we can do. However, the brits will have a much stronger firing mechanism. The reason his helmet is not removable is because it does not really make the figure that different if the helmet comes off. You end up with a slightly different "head sculpt", in a manner of speaking, this way, like the EB Piggy.
