Help with a vintage boba Fett torso split.
« on: June 16, 2006, 02:17 PM »
So.... today I was bored so I grabbed my custom Rocket Fett I bought from Ebay and examined it for awhile.... then I decided to give i ago myself so I grabbed one of my spare vintage fetts and popped it in some hot water and popped the arms and legs out. I didnt get the head out because it didn't want to pop out and i was worried about breaking it.
Anyway I couldnt work out how to spilt the blood Torso so I grabbed an xacto and tried cutting the seal.... slip big gash in my thumb lol so before I injure myself again how do i spilt it please?

I heated mine in boiling water and then took a small flathead screwdriver and pried it apart from the crotch.
OUCH!
The kind of screwdrivers that are in Reading Glasses Repair kits.
