Good evening here’s a brief update on King Poseidon. For those who own Iron shell, do you remember the alternative ball joint head he comes with? In addition have you seen the King Poseidon neck replacement video? I watched it I found a safer way to install the neck replacement. It’s similar to fella doing on the video link. But I took a short route, instead of cutting the metal replacement rod he comes with.
- You have to take the back piece apart, just like the video.
- Unfortunately you do have to cut off the green plastic that’s attached to the current neck piece.
- Pray, cuss, and use strength to pull the old pin out.
I used a needle nose pliers and the pull shimmy technique. Trust me it was a BITCH pulling that damn pin out and avoiding stressing the plastic.
Once that done my friend get some grease. If you have the grease that came with GTs Gravity builder and you still have it use it. You will need to grease the metal pin done. Also lube up the slots you suppose to slide the pin. For the hard to reach slots, I recommend using a very thin but long paint brush or something to grease the insides down.
Once you got everything lubed up then put the new neck on and slide the metal pin in. It took me about and hour and forty five minutes to get the damn thing in Last but not least you do have to take King Ps head off and re attach it to the new neck joint. Now King P has an adjustable neck.
With neck stretched forward look
As you can see having the neck extended Forward eliminates the empty space when it was sitting back. I don’t and never had a problem with his ole head positioned on his body. It does allow him to have dramatic left and right movement on his head now.
Head adjusted to previous position.
He can a serious ‘HO-ZONE LAYER ABOVE looking up. And menacing looking downward tilt. More so, you’re able to tilt his head for a curious or confused King P head pose.
I stuck with the head back because of the dramatic look down won my black heart. However I will take advantage of the option I have with the extended neck forward. This is just an update nothing special. Here are some photos I took below.
