I switched Piggy heads!!

    I really like the EB Piggy but not the regular Piggy. However, I feel the regular Piggy has a more original costume. I only remember Piggy ever wearing her purple dress unless in a specific skit that required otherwise (i.e. Pigs in Space). So...I finally got the courage to swap the heads on the two and now she looks perfect. I'm so pleased. Thought I'd share...

    Wouldn't it have been easier to paint the EB Piggy's dress purple?

    Are you kidding? It took like 30 seconds to switch the heads.

    What tips can you give if someone is interested in trying it too?

    Poor Piggy...man, we really blew it on that hair up head sculpt!

    I take full responsibility...sniff...

    Just gently turn her head as you pull up on it, be very gentl though. Then push and turn to put it back in. It was really simple.

    Wow, you didn't even have to use the "boil and pop" method on the heads? Simplicity in itself. :)

    Is it just me, or does the term "boil and pop" remind anyone else of their teenage years?

    Actually, that sounds like a good line of figures..'"BOIL AND POP- THE ZIT-WITS".. two figures covered head to toe in acne and other such bodily marks like pimples, warts, etc. you squeeze them and they make popping noises.. some versions you fill with water, squeeze, and watch the liquid squirt out of the pustles.. a guaranteed hit for the 6-10 year old crowd!

    Why not? I've accually seen grosser ideas on the shelves.

    LOL! Seriously though, any customizer here worth his or her salt knows all about the "boil and pop method". Warm a mug of water in the microwave for a minute, then submerge the toy in the water for thirty seconds or so. That makes the plastic really soft and pliable. Take the figure out, and pull quickly and firmly (with an oven mitted hand lest you get burnt by any hot water inside the toy) and pop, off comes the head. Easy as pie. I altered quite a few Trek figures when the new blue shouldered Starfleet uniforms came out, but Playmated never released the Deep Space Nine crew in those unis.

    Soon Palisades will start putting out muppet mutants to capitalize on this new found discovery.
