    I hope this belongs in this section. Question re: removing forearms from figures

    It is about customs, but I have a question about the process actually.

    Can anyone tell me the easiest, most efficient way to separate the lower arms from the upper arms on joe figures. I just can't seem to figure out the best way to remove that elbow pin.

    If anyone could give me advice I would be very grateful.

    Thanks

    Jason

    you can boil the arm in a pot of water-only for a few seconds though- and then the lower arm should be much easier to pop out. Dont do it for too long or you'll melt the plastic.

    Thats the process for the new sculpt arms, because their rubber is softer.

    The old sculpt arms are trickier.
