The Heads Are Rolling In This Beginners’ How-To-Customize-Your-Toys Guide

At its peak, my toy customizing skills were mostly limited to unscrewing the backs of G.I. Joes and swapping heads, limbs, torsos and other body parts – actually, I don’t think there were other parts to swap – to create brand new characters. I always wondered how to apply the same customization ideas to different toy products, such as ToyBiz’s Marvel offerings, but never got the hang of it without irreversibly destroying my figures.

If only I had a speedy Internet connection back in those days, as the folks at The Fwoosh have provided a step-by-step guideline for executing one of the most basic acts of toy customization – head swapping.

The instructions are intended for toy collectors looking to expand upon their Lantern Corps, particularly the ones from Sinestro’s neck of the galaxy. All you need is a pair of pliers, a cup of boiling water and two action figures with which to create your brand new Sinestro Corps member.

Maybe I’ll dig up the old toy chest I’ve got at home and see what I can piece together. It’s been a while since I’ve customized anything, and I certainly have a lot of Sid from “Toy Story” moments in my past to atone for.
