I have a Transformers Universe Classics Optimus Prime figure. I like to try different weapons on the figure to see how they look. I bought a transformers beast hunters voyager class optimus prime figure and try o put the sword into the other primes hand. It got stuck and I pilled it out with so much force that the handle of the sword was jammed in the classics optimus prime. I want to remove the jammed piece of plastic from the classics optimus primes hand. I have already tried tweezers it doesn't work. Help thanks

Motto: ""Excessive force is not necessary.""
I plan to buy the large Dragon Assault Beast Hunters Prime when it hits the clearance, but I hate the missile launching ring thingee on his back. It's a huge, heavy eyesore that ruins the figure imo. I plan to remove it the moment it clears the package. Are there any good tutorials that show how best to remove it without damaging the toy? I want the option of being able to put it back on if necessary.
Thanks in advance! :D

What's the best way to remove a broken off peg from a peg hole on a commander class toy? The Toy in question is the TFP Ironhide, one of the pegs of his cannons broke off in his for arm.

My suggestion? Use a Tamiya Handy Drill and basically "disintegrate" the peg by drilling into it in various places, and then try to dig out the pieces. The reason I specifically said Tamiya's Handy Drill is because it's designed specifically for drilling into plastic. The rotation of the bit is relatively slow and thus won't melt the surrounding plastic, and the small size and weight of the drill makes it much easier to maneuver during precision jobs, compared to the much larger and heavier Dremmel rotary tools or power drills.

Even with the handy drill, it's still a risky job, so if you choose to go ahead with it, be VERY careful and try to gauge how deep the port is by measuring the depth of the port on the other forearm.

Just my two cents' worth.

I've got a Cybertron Primus who's got a fault with one of the springs in his shoulder pads which stops the pad from moving all the way up. Anyone know of a way to fix it?

1) Acquire a toothpick.
2) place toothpick end on one side of the 5mm port that serves as OP's hand
3) PUSH WITH ALL YOUR MORTAL MIGHT
4) If that doesn't work try with a hammer and a small nail. Be gentle when doing this.
5) Profit!

Okay, I know this has been discussed many times, but I need a reminder. How do you fix a loose ball and socket joint where the piece keeps falling out? I seem to remember some saying use nail polish remover but I want to be sure.

I have an Energon superclass Optimus whose leg has gone limp, he can't even hold himself up in supermode anymore. How can I fix it? I tried taking the waist apart but the battery compartment is in the way.

Nail polish or super glue. The idea is to create more mass on the ball joint so it fits tightly around the socket.

Hey all,
Quick question. I have a Hasbro MP Soundwave with a semi-loose left arm. I tried to look for a screw to tighten but could not find one. I think I could fit a small scrap of paper to tighten the shoulder joint.
What would you all do?
Thanks!

Hey guys, New to this so not sure if im asking the questions in the right place.
I started collecting transformers again and I have seen a g1 prowl I like the look of but it appears to be damaged and I was wondering if it is a easy fix.
Here is a photo of the item I am looking at buying and I was wondering if I were to glue the roof section back would it hold?
