So a day later, went back at it, pulled of Sinestie's head and the ball joints that hold his head and connect it to his body came out. So now I have a GL body with stump that has a hole on it. How do I replace the balljoint that used to be there? Do they sell spare balljoints?

Boil water and soak the head then using a pair of pliers on the peg and a hand towel around the head with 30 seconds of removing from the water. You should be able remove the peg. After that it is a matter of forcing the peg back down the hole

Does anyone know what paint to use to make it look clear.
Trying to make constructs

I've been having trouble getting my figures to stand, i have tried blue tack, white tack and double sided tape but no luck. So i went into a Stationary store Ryman in the UK and found this Sticki Dots. I got the removable ones not the extra strength just in case they ruined the figure.

Thank you! Unfortunetly, the ball joint sorta came out with alittle too much force, I blame me not having enough time on my hands. So, to fix it, I made new balljoint out of a Revoltech joint I had laying around, works pretty good.

I use these to keep my figures standing, no residue and easily removable, plus you can cut them in half and go through less! This set is $9.99 and you can get it at most places that have a As seen on TV aisle or hardware stores.

I am working on one for all my Corps rings it will be one piece and will have each corps emblem in it in that corps color, facing forward, with Ring Stands on the top for each ring. I also will be putting LED's in it in each color but I am going to pour it in layers each colored for the corps with a transparent layer where the corps emblem is so it lights up.

Have you finished your project, yet? Curious to see how it turned out. :)

This may seem like an odd question but does anyone run into the issue of the legs on their figures spreading apart to far (yes I know this is rife for comedy). My figures seem to have a tendecy to stretch out in the legs are to the point where it looks like they are getting ready to do a split. My shelf is not near my heater or anything like that. Any insight as to why this happens? I was thinking of using rubber bands or those plastic ties to "bend" them back to the regular shape.

Hey, guys. I just picked up a loose DCUC Batman Beyond on the cheap, but the previous owner appears to have colored the batarang black & red with Sharpies. Any idea how I might clean the ink off without completely destroying the batarang? Thanks.

Goof off or Goo gone will take care of that.

Thanks, sylent. I'll give those a try.

I did but ended up having to trash it. Nothing went the way I wanted, the Clear sections absorbed color from the layers blow and above and it all looked nasty. I plan on eventually doing it again but just haven't gotten around to it.
