Another thing that would be very useful to be able to buy separately would be the base - I've bought a could of extended bodies for my Sophias so if I could just buy the base, I could make up 2 more Wink

+1 agree with all of this

I agree too Smiling

likewise gold and jewels,
but I would slave to learn the way

Screwdriver in the top and gently push the centre pin down til it pops out the bottom.

i use a plastic carto driver that iv trimmed to fit the Sophia in my Daughters pencil sharpener lol, (shhhhhhhhhh our secret :winkSmiling
or a wooden dowel, as long as its fine enough to fit in the sophia base,

we have stock of the service kits for the Sophia on the House Of Mods website phil,

RE: Getting the best from your Sophia,
A quick question if I may? Roughly, how long do you expect a Sophia's Head to last, including the number of times you wash and dry burn the head to clean it up again?
