Just out of curiosity, how do you push the pegs out with a dremmel? I don't have a rotary tool of any kind, so I wouldn't know.


Remove bits of the pegs a little at a time till you can push it out. Don't just push it out because that probably won't be happening since the glue is fairly sturdy stuff. You can get a decent Dremel for 20$ @ Wal-Mart that has high and low speed settings. Good enough for custom work but you'll need a few extra bits for making ball joint receptacles or cutting specialized areas, ect. It's a good tool to have once you start getting into customizing and necessary once you hit physical mods.

Sounds like a good idea for me to get a dremel one of these days. I'm still currently only into very light repaints and detailing, but I do plan on attempting to get the headlight pegs out on my other figs (bayverse Swindle is just begging for a coat of Ferarri Red and some detailing on his headlights).

First post update!

I believe I've done what I wanted to do. I will go back over the knees eventually.
