    I just got my Revoltech Starscream and I want to change his hands....but I'm not sure how. This is my first Revoltech figure. I pulled the hands a bit, but they're not coming out very easily. I don't want to break it on the first day I have it. I searched the Internet but there doesn't seem to be a handy "guide to revoltech part switching" available anywhere. So does anyone have tips for me? ^^

    (btw: I hope I didn't post this in a wrong section or anything)

    Pull. Really. Hard.


    That's the only way you're going to get those sons of bitches out. I broke my Megatron's cannon trying to wrestle the hand out.

    The thing with Meagtron is, his cannon is glued one, so if you're squeezing too hard trying to get the right hand off the cannon can break.

    Kinda weird, since the "changing parts" is one of the things Revoltech advertises with...:inquisiti  But they're soooo pretty ^_^

    It's better than the first release of the Griffon, whose hands and joints were too lose.

    There were a few revo figures I just couldn't get the hands out of the joints no matter what I did. Good thing you were able to!!

    what you do is twist the hand and pull very lightly

    I don't want to call what I did "lightly"....:p  but the twisting does help a lot! For a second I though the figure was going to pull my hands off though.... XD

    @ Grifter Prime - Starscream is wonderful. I love him. But there's tons of reviews on the net who say it much better than I could ^^
