Well, the clone trooper robot head seems pretty autobot like to me. Just how do you remove heads with that new flat fastener that's now being used since Energon? :???:

The Clone Pilot head isn't one of those metal flat fasteners, its simply a plastic post with a wide base holding it in. Unscrew his shoulders and pull apart the chest and the head slides right out. Personally I used a modified Snowcat head with a new post made of epoxy putty for the one I'm modding right now.
