  • Classic Collection Small Transition HandsWrist repair

    I have a Classic Collection Figure
    With Smaller Transition Hands
    has two problems
    one the Wrist are to turn
    And two Left Hand tore trying to turn it.
    they'll turn if grab the Wrist Joint directly and turn .
    still but but it stresses hand.
    and now figure out how reattach the Hand.
    I do not have a Junk Figure with same Hands.
    This Figure has limited run.
    after Hasbro went to Kung Ho Grip Hands.
    anybody have any ideas
    How to loosening Wrist Joints and repair Wrist hand repair.

    Ok I am going to post this on the off chance .
    the information may come in handy.

    the first thing I believe is to make sure this Hands rotate easier or the other suffer same fate.

    so heat the wrist area with aBlow Drier.
    or Heat Gun .
    personally I like Heat Fun .
    but cant. Find I right now.
    if heat fails to solve the problem.
    maybe a shot of Silacone Sprat in Wrist Peg is inserted.
    now I well cut the remaining Material from the Hand.
    so I can pull the Wrist Joint .out.
    heating up again this enough to make other Plastic surrounding it softer .
    that's it do not want melt it.
    using Small Curved vise Grips.
    the Jaws were dip in Plastic Dip.
    highly Recommenex.
    with Wrist Joint remove time to see about reattaching Hand.
    my idea is to insert a Sewing Needle into the Wrist Peg .
    cut it drill a hole into the Hand.
    roughen the Pin with a Small File.
    and this before pressing together add Some Gorrillia Glue
    a bit of Water make it really Strong.
    now I thinking weather to use a Pin Vise and Small Drill Bit.
    which allow me to hold it by Hand
    or Place in a Hobby Vise pullout Dremel Tool.
    since were talking small Area.
