can't do a follow along, but i can probably open up his leg and show you the completed repair
Any solution for rusted rivets on G1 toys?
Buy some Corrostop, it is a clear blue liquid, which can be applied to a surface by pouring or spraying.
Corrostop Corrosion Inhibitor http://www.OMSdive.com
sic, have you used this? Does it work well?
What we also need is some sort of solution to solidify GPS parts, that would be awesome! I'd finally get some figures I'd always wanted with much less apprehension.
Jesus Christ, that thing is REAL!?
Does that mean Carbombya is real too?
Unfortunately, the only real solution for parts plagued with GPS is to have the parts recast. There's no way (at least that I'd know of) to fix the plastic, since the fault is in the mix of plastic itself.
With certain figures, there are steps one can take to ease the stress of certain areas. I was brave here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans.../357621-gps-war-skyhammer-i-fight-battle.html
That's a cool thread and pictoral, doesn't encourage me to get SkyHammer however.
The strangest thing happened with my Bristleback recently. I've been handling the figure without much care for GPS for a few years and nothing happened. And just when I start to take extra care in fear of GPS taking place....I broke one of his leg...I tell you, there's a conspiracy there somewhere.
I'm heading to Burma to find some ruby crystals before this universe meld wears off...
Thanks! Skyhammer really surprised me with how cool of a toy it is. For me, there's just too much gold plastic, particularly on the vehicle Pretender shell. I'm not keen on the human characters, but I'm a bit over that now, though. Otherwise, it's a fun toy. Stupid GPS . . . .
Supersquads did it!
This is a good thread, as I notice some of you have already posted: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...37-how-do-you-remove-stickers-g1-figures.html
So that's removing stickers... what tips are there for getting old stickers to stick when they don't want to? Got a Dai Atlas and Road Fire recently with stickers unapplied. Have tried to apply... but they're so old they don't want to hold. What glue is recommended? Don't want to get something so porous that it damages the design, but don't want it to smear and mess up the figure like super glue can ><
I'd actually recommend some Elmer's School Glue and using an old paint brush to apply it. It's durable enough to stick, but it's not as harshly powerful that super glue can be.

Thanks again, turboed!
Yes...yes it does
I saw Insane Galvatron post this (and brr-icy performed the fix on his as well):
If someone wants to make a photo tutorial of this, I can resource it.
How to fix leaning seekers? I have four jets each with varying degrees of tilt. Thrust, shown here, is the worst of them. SS, SW and TC all lean but not as severe as Thrust. In 'bot mode they stand just fine.
Many thanks in advance for your help!

Anyone know a fix for Onslaught's legs? I bought my dad one last Christmas and both legs exploded. He bought a cheap, yellowed(greened?) replacement from a later run of the figure and it doesn't have the same problem. When we get a proper replacement for him later I'd like to know how to bust-proof them just in case it's an early-run Onslaught.
