Hope Summers shoulder joint

Posted in Custom Workstation

I want to remove Hopes arms at the shoulder so I can replace the whole thing with x23s, do I need to crack either body or can I just boil and pop them both. I really don't wanna have to crack hopes body cause it would be first attempt. I really don't care if I have to for x 23 since ill never use that body for anything.

Yeah I got the idea from your awesome x-23 custom. Sounds a little advanced for my skill so I guess just go ahead and use Psylocke as base. But Ill remember this in the future. Thanks for the help.

I did this and it is difficult. You need to boil and pop out Hope's arms and then crack open x-23 to get her arms out. I then dremeled the houlder peg from x-23 to resemble Hope's arm peg. Then boiled hope and popped it in there. I ended up using a Donna Troy arms onto the shoulder once it was in there but you get the idea.

X-23 (Edarth is correct) is a "sandwich-type"... you crack it open
Hope (OJJ is right) is a "solid piece"... you boil and pop the arms out.
If the pegs don't match, you can simply put Hope's arms back with no damage at all, as long as the torso is heated enough to be flexible.

What do you mean by she is solid? Can I remove her arms and switch them with someone else if I wanted to use her body for a different project in the future? Thanks for the help, I just started messing around with this.

Hope is solid. The 2 are not compatible.

Not sure about Hope but X-23 will need cracking. I'm sure someone else will chime in with some hope advice.
