    I've been trying to replace some of the screws of Animated Deluxe Optimus Prime and Megatron because they became rusty due to the moisture in the air.

    But I stripped a screw badly on Megatron's left feet; the screw that is screwed into the transparent red plastic. I've tried every single screw driver size and allen key but I just can't get a grip, it doesn't help that the screw is also VERY tightly screwed in.

    Any ideas how to remove it? I am by no means a good repairman, everything I try to repair just becomes worse. -_-"

    I've heard of using a drill. I don't have a drill but I could buy a pin vice. Would it be strong enough, and what do I have to do anyway?

    Ebay:
    Try using a wide rubber band over the stripped screw, the push hard against it as you slowly try remove it like usual. Sometimes even applying pressure from the screwdriver onto the stripped screw as you turn it counterclockwise can help pop and loosen it.

    Good luck, man....hope you get it sorted out.

    A square headed bit might work. It always does for me.
