    Hey guys,

    I've got a Problem with AirRaid and FE OptimusPrime
    they both have a slope build in piece as you can see on the pictures.

    I figured you can probably get the steel bar (don't know what it's called) out if you put something in with the exact same size. Anyone knows what you can use for that? And then you can try to fix the crooked up piece with shaping another hole in it.

    But the Optimus Prime part seems kind of tricky, because the steel bar only has one entrance...

    Hope you can help me with it, I don't know how to fix it :\

    There's a tutorial for knocking out pins in radicons section. As for how i do it, i get someone to heat up a soldering iron, use that on the pin, which will heat up (and thus expand) the plastic around it. While it's hot, use a hammer and something sharp to literally hammer the pin out.

    Of course, exercise caution and do so at your own risk. :)
