    Look around at some of the customs boards. I'm not entirely sure you can reattach a broken thumb (Sorry about that, Grunt. ) but I have seen sculpey and epoxy thumb prosthetics for Joes and Indiana Jones figures.
    We may even have a few threads on this board, but I haven't checked yet.

    I got a Destro V1 online with wobbly legs and just installed a number 10 o-ring. It seems small. Will it stretch or is my figure going to explode tonight? If it's okay with you guys, I'll fix my Airtight and Blowtorch (both of whom have crazy legs...).

    Help?

    Forget it. The O-ring was not on the insides of the little knobs that hook the torso together and once I fixed that, it was awesome.

    Fixed 4 new Joes and only Blowtorch was unfixable. I ordered a 3 dollar loose figure off the net and will make a nice new version with my Frankenstein powers...

    Any good suggestions for removing the hats from Gung Ho v2 or Shipwreck v1? I of course have thought of using hot water, or of carving out the head, but thought I would see if anyone had another method.

    GH's dress blues hat is just glued on; it's not part of the mold. (It looks like he has unpainted hair underneath, so not that attractive.) Mine simply came off when the figure fell onto a hard surface back around 1990, so I treat it like a removable accessory.

    Hot water might work, or you might try just pulling on it.

    Has anybody had any trouble unscrewing newer figures? The Vietnam era Stalker figure I got a year or so back had his o-ring snap already. I figured it would be an easy fix but I can not get it to budge. It's not glued in there or anything is it?

    I just tried one. It was very sticky at first, but once that initial bond "broke", it came out just fine. Maybe they put the screws in hot? I think that if the figure is a little warmer to begin with the screw will probably come out with less effort. Try letting it sit on a heat register or radiator for ½ an hour or so (unless the radiator runs steam instead of heated water - could damage the fig).
    This is where my signature would be if I had something to say.
