    I was wondering if anyone else had some troubke taking apart the legs on the classics Starscream mold. I actually trying to take apart Acidstorm, but same mold. I just can;t seem to split them. I have taken the screws off, and I took the Pin out for his feet. Am I missing something?

    I did this to an Acid Storm a while back while planning for a Superion custom (that is still in the early WIP/planning stages--no pics). If I remember correctly, the legs are glued together also. So you'll need to take a new/sharp hobby knife and carefully cut down the seam where it is glued. Do a little at a time so that you cut into the glue and don't hack up the leg in the process. It took a bit, but it finally gave and popped apart when I did this very thing.

    Good luck with it, man!

    What i usually do when taking apart those seeks is simply use the tight as a lever so one side "opens", then simply take either the hobby knife or even a flat screwdiver to pop the other side :)
