    I snapped a G1 Rippersnapper's head while it was attached to Hun-Gurrr as a limb. Unfortunately the head is lodged in the socket.

    How do I take that lodged piece out from the socket? I would like to know the wizardry behind this because I can't figure it out.

    Also... does anyone have an extra G1 Rippersnapper head? :p 

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello! It's the arm port. In Abominus mode, it would be the port / socket hole for the left arm.

    I was hoping to not disassemble. I tried "pinching" it out but I just further damaged the area around the port.

    Aw no he's got stickers on his arms doesn't he? So yeah disassembling him's a no-go.

    I'd lost a peg in RiD Rollbar's hand a while ago and this thread had some solutions: Removing a Broken Peg from a Hole?
    Not my first choice since it might end up a little messy but c'est la vie

    Yes. The stickers are there and most notably on that arm is the rubsign. :(  The solutions on that link are good ones and I'm gonna try the small screw / pliers method. If that fails, screwdriver disintegration may be the next option C'est la vie.

    Thanks for that link Agamus!!!

    SOLVED! Agamus that link was AMAZING! I drilled a hole with my thinnest smallest drill bit, screwed in this small screw until it stopped and yanked. Worked like a charm.

    Thanks! Good looking out.
