K! Will do!.... Do hope you don't mind if it'll probably be in a villain moc (I need to make so many more of them, I have so many hero/toa mocs! XD)
So, uh, yeah, meant to put this up like a lot earlier but... eh, stuff happens. So here, as requested by @Toa_Vladin, is how I stuck a Breakout Bulk hemet on an V.2 HF head. (This may require some heresy/part modifying, currently I have found doing so to provide the sturdiest result, but, to each their own)
So as you can see (sorry for shadows) this helmet’s head has solid purple eyes, a colour only made for one inner head, Evo’s.
Here’s how you do it:
Step 1 - Parts:
These are the parts that you’ll need to do this.
Now then, I know you guys are going to be wondering where I got the stick piece from. This is where it comes from:
The lower half of a lego chisel.
Now before I get any heresy comments here’s the thing, I didn’t do this. In truth I’ve been keeping this thing around since I found it in a bag of Lego parts, figured I’d need it someday, and hey, I was right.
Now this can be accomplished using any other pieces of similar size, from the robot claws to a Lego icepick. If you want you can even use an unbroken chisel/black Lego axe.
Warning if you do, the end will stick out below the chin, but, hey, maybe that’ll work for you in your design.
Also, while said above smaller items will work I find their connection to be looser than doing what I did.
Step 2 - helmet/head connection areas:
So here’s what you do with the dual axle hole piece (sorry for lighting again). Don’t worry, this can easily be popped back out with tweezers, a small screwdriver or just any long Lego piece you can angle behind it.
So here’s where you stick whatever pole/stick piece you’re using, make sure to push the stick in as far as it'll go for the bottom, it will end up being moved later on but this provides for an easier connection.
In my opinion that is.
Step 4 - Connecting:
So now all you gotta do is line up the stick with the open axle port, push the head in and then push the stick in as far as you can while not disconnecting the dual axle piece or moving the inner head.
Now you do have to check that the head itself will fit in the mask first before you start doing all this or else, well, this’ll all be for nothing.
You will also notice that the eyes won’t line up perfectly, most likely with the eyebrows lining up instead.
Now while some people may enjoy the look, for those who don’t this is why I recommend the piece I’m using/similar. Now while I haven’t figured out how to perfectly line it up I have found out that by pressing on the innermost head until it’s eyes match up with the masks eye holes (or a small close as you can get) as long as you press it down for a touch it’ll line up, and it doesn’t even bend anything (at least not that I can see)!
From what I can tell the head itself will slide down due to looseness/not being built for set mask and basically apholding it down kinda.... sets the ‘sturdiness’ (?).
I dunno, it just works.
So here you go, how to stick a top axle mask on an HF 2 head!
Hope you all enjoy!
