    So, after finishing the arm-fix for Grimlock's left arm, i noticed his right one was glued shut. What techniques are there to get rid of factory glue? I've tried heating it and simply cracking open, but neither seem to work.

    It seems like very strong glue, so i`m afraid of breaking it.

    a good drop perhaps?

    failing that NP has been doing a series on youtube, his follow along of bashing big ole Grimmers into Ducky lurvin Megs, one of the videos includes his notes on disassembling.

    I usually cut the stuff with my exacto, then pry the area open with my really small flathead screwdriver

    ^ Agreed. I did almost the same when I took the rear wheel wells off of Fracture.

    Heh, seems his right arm didn't need the fix, it was just absurdly tight.
