I recently purchased some WCF's with the intention of doing Dragon Stars head swaps. I saw the potential for Hit, Zamasu, Gowasu, Black and even Merged Zamasu.
Unfortunately, none of the newer WCF characters have unnattached heads that slide onto pegs like older releases. The heads are attached at a seal on the underneck(?)
Being somewhat impatient, i approached with a thin swiss army keychain-blade that was able to be inserted into small crevices where the neck meets head.
Zamasu and Gowasu were actually attached the same as the old style WCF's. The thing is, they were glued as well... head pulling, neck stretching/extending, and full 360 head turning was neccessary. That and some blade insertion eventually made them come off rather clean to my surprise, but only after much persistence and worry of breaking the figure.
The goku Blacks were a much more ardent ordeal. i had to essentially excavate the neck from the head using repetitive deep inserts of the blade. I thought i was screwing everything up, but they are hollowed out once you get to a certain point in the head. The WCF' heads fit well enough on figuarts and dragon stars neck pegs, albeit some pushing and forcing.
i havent received my wcf hit head yet so i just tried to color him purple and panel line.
Gotta say, I'm having fun with dragon stars and applaud their character choices so far. Glad the sculpts are starting to live up to that. Bring on Jiren, Cabba, and Kale
I would just boil some water in the microwave (8 oz measuring cup takes 1 minute, 30 seconds usually), submerge the WCF figure for maybe 45 seconds, take it out using some hotdog tongs, lay it on a towel/rag, blot it off/shake it, then try to pull the head off. If all else fails, it'll be super easy to cut the plastic with an X-acto knife if you heat the figure this way first.
Thanks! futureztrunks67 I don't see why you shouldn't be able to do it. I don't have dragon stars beerus, or a wcf beerus, but as long as you can find a way to extract the head and carve a hole in the bottom, you can make it fit.
There are probably much better ways to do it then my "brute force/whats laying around'" method. ive heard you can separate the head and use a dremel or such to drill a hole under the head.
In my experience so far, most wcf heads are empty and hollowed out once you get in a bit
As long as I have the power to destroy you, I'm willing to sacrifice everything...

Hey man, gotta say I love how these came out! I would definitely be interested in doing the same. I'm really not familiar with the WCF line, would there be any chance of you showing which WCF figures you used? I would seriously appreciate it. I would also be very interested in seeing some head on shots of Black and Merged Zamasu, like the one you took of regular Zamasu in the first post, but no pressure to do that.
