My eye problem is fixed! But now his hat wont work! (details inside)

Post  LukeTore on Fri Feb 06, 2015 3:49 am

So I used a hair dryer to get the eye into the socket, and that worked wonderfully! So thank you!

Now I try to attach the hat, and when I tried to put it together, the peg on the hat was pushed into the hat itself! Now I can shake it and hear it rattling inside.

Is there any way to fix this? Can't think of any way to get his hat on now except for glue, and that's just ugly.

I'm surprised the peg was so flimsy!

Thanks for the quick reply!

I believe (from what I can find online) that it's the Smokestack hat?

The really tall one with 2 sets of wings on either side.

ok..I haven't tried this but I bet it will work.

- get the trusty hair dryer, and heat the bottom of the hat (where the hole is)
- take a sharpened pencil and use it to open the hole (temporarily..enough to get the peg out)
- heat the helmet and insert the loose peg into that hole
- attach the hat.

let me know if that works.

Lol, that's some plan! Razz

But I'll try it out! I doubt I'll be able to shake the peg from the hat though.

this is an interesting post haha Im excited to hear you're getting it resolved, I almost had the same issue with the same hat. I then relized how cold the figure was from shipping the cold weather, and I know that vinyl expands when its cold and becomes stiff so I put it down and left it over night until it was room temp. and it went right in the following day !
