Star Wars toys need dissassembling! Help

Posted in Custom Workstation

I'm rather new to customizing and I want to make a custom Storm trooper, but the one I got doesn't have peg joints or the pop in pop out joints. I don't really know how they are connected, but its like a peg that is attached to the joint which makes it impossible to take apart with out cutting it or something. I would rather not cut it, but need to paint the white parts of the trooper Orange and figured the easiest way to do that would be to take it apart. Now that is going to be harder than it seems because it won't come apart besides the hands and the head. Please someone help me out.

each SW figure is diffrent. which one is it your specificaly talking about. and no most of them are glued as are the new GI joes. some of them you can stick in boiling water to get the glue loose and then pop it apart. others you might need some super glue remover and let it sit and try that. otherwise I would score the sides or flat parts and pry it apart there so when your done you can blend everything back in. I hope that helps. let me know if not.

Aren't SW/GI Joe toys held together by screws?

Try scoring the side seems with a craft knife - be VERY careful and try and cut away from you

best help you can get is a dremmel they have special heads that allow drilling sanding and cutting

Buy one - for then thou shalt be a customiser!
