I used to use the hot water method. Just yesterday I was wrestling with a hot toys figure to get the head on the neck peg. I decided to give the hot air dryer trick a try and it worked like a charm. It's quicker than the hot water method and you don't need to get your figure wet. I highly recommend it.

well if your head peg broke off i can fix them like new, my gohst neck broke during shipping so i put my sculpting skills to work and used supersculpy to fill in the crack and baked the neck back together, bake time 275 degress in the oven , 10-15 min waite depending on the thickness normaly. after you bake it just sand it down if it is needed and wam bam thank you Squadt boared haha.

Another method to pop the lenses out of the eye socket is the hot water method. Soften the helmet with hot water, push the lens out and you're good to go.

Am having extreme difficulty changing Big sleep's arms, can anyone please enlighten me on an easier way to do it? The arms are always caught with the tight clothing.

i took the arms off the body while still wearing clothes, then slipped the arms out of the sleeves and replaced them
i remember putting the new arm in the sleeve shoulder first then sliding in (up)
(the hand wouldnt fit in the cuff)
does that make any sense?
if i had a jet id fly over and help you

Thanks for the advice bro! Sigh, in the process of squeezing in the arms, the black paint got scratched off and now reveals the layer underneath. Am so heartbroken Sad

Something awesome just hit me. Whoever has a Midnight Jack.......we now have 2.0 arms for him thanks to Germ "Born Wrong". I used the Old Skool arms for Germ since the 2.0 arms don't work that well anyway cause of the leather jacket. The 2.0 arms for Germ BW are black, and work really well with MID Jacks sweater material.

Also found this other stuff that is great for attaching the scopes to the guns.......I bought it at Michael's art supply, its in the scotch tape section. Its comes in a roll, and it is little strips of clear sticky gel. just cut a little square off and put it on the bottom of the scope where it attaches to the gun. It works great.

Any advice on keeping the eye lenses in the sockets??? I changed the lenses on the Born Wrong, and I cannot keep any in there. I was thinking museum wax, but I really do not want to put anything like this on the helmet, unless there is no other choice. Any advice would be greatly appreciated...

Ferg had good me at one time that you can put a drop of adhesive behind the eye. I forget what type of adhesive he told me to use. I tried to look back at my previous posts but couldn't find it.

There has to be something out there that won't effect the vinyl.

Sorry I am no help, but I also felt this thread needed to be bumped.

I found a perfect resolution to this problem. It's this stuff called museum wax/ quake hold. It's like a wax or putty used to hold objects from tipping. I used an extremely small amount, half a pinch. Worked perfectly also used it to hold the scopes and silencers. It takes a small amount, next to nothing. Hope this helps.
