only defect is the mouth can't open that wide due to the back piece. also the head is pretty much welded together.

and the lip is now starting to flake. Although there is still some silver stain left on the foam, so there's that. Problem though is the lip is hot glued on, so i have a risk of messing up the metal flake.

If you want to remove the lip try rubbing alcohol.  I don't know how it will affect the metal flake paint, but it will make hot glue pop right off.  Test it out in a hidden spot or on a paint chip first.  It may not affect the paint at all.

I would apply the alcohol with a small paint brush.  Once you get a small section of the glue seam to break stick the brush into the seam and push it toward the glue that is still sticking.  Gently push the brush and pull at the glue.
