action feature removal (help)

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey all, Im new to customizing, in fact this will be my first. First I want to say that I have a lot of respect for you guys and gals. Your figures and other customs are outstanding. Next I have what I think is a smc morbius, correct me if im wrong, with the rubber face and action feature where his mouth opens when you push the button on his back. the face is destroyed due to my little brother n I want to use the figure for a custom. any ideas on how to remove that annoying action feature, without destroying the figure? keep in mind that I don't have a dremel. Thanks in advance.

I didn't want to split the figure apart because I don't have a dremel n I didn't want to break it. I ended up sawing the head off at the neck with my trusty steak knife, I need new tools lol, then I kinda pryed the neck whole open a bit with a screwdriver which caused a small crack that annoyed me. I really just hacked pulled n pryed it out. It worked but the button on his back is still there. I couldnt pull it out so I cut it down put some glue on it and pushed it in so that the hole in his back is covered. later im gonna sand it to make it less noticeable, but at least I won't need to buy sculpt to cover the hole. It looks ok now but I need to do a little work because I want to keep the neck strap piece, which is a chunk of plastic that was part of the head and I kind of broke it a bit.
My advice, don't use my method, just pry the body apart and pray you don't break it.
