        I subscribe to his channel. He's cool. A lot of awesome videos. Also check out analog toys on youtube for some more action man goodness.

          Good find!

          It's always nice to see an old toy restored back to glory, especially in a time when toys are struggling to win the hearts and minds of the younger ones, because of the onslaught of electronic gagets.

            Love his stuff. Sometimes I would do things differently but that's my choice. I think it's really important to learn from each other. He often repairs things I didn't know were possible. This repair I have done many times, I take for granted not everyone knows how. I watch some of his videos that have nothing to do with Action Man/GIJOE just too see his thought process. His use of Lego bits for repairs is genius! I had a friend tell me that if you told someone every repair you know you might ruin the fun of collecting for them. They don't get the fun of figuring
            it out. What are your thoughts?

              I think most people would love to save a joe from the brink but most aren’t creative enough to think of this stuff so it’s important to share. I’d never think of brake fluid; I’d assume it’d melt the whole figure but after watching this I realize they sell it in a plastic bottle lol

                True! LOL I tried all kinds of crazy and dangerous chemicals to remove flock. When you can do it with hot water(slow and tiresome) Bleach(can fade paint.)but cleans face of dirt. Alcohol is easiest. Take out after a few hours scape as Alcohol evaporates my get harder just pop back in a for a hour and finish. I tried experiment after experiment to find Hasbro didn't always use same glue formula ect. so too many variables for me to nail down. For me alcohol is the best.
