    As simple as the title states. I can not figure out how to pull this pin. I'm sure for you veteran customizers this is child's play, but this is my first. PLEASE HELP!

    The wheel pin?

    Best way for that is to heat it up with a soldering iron until it starts to get loose, then pull.

    sorry, yes the wheel pin. I tried to heat it up. That didn't work. It seems to have a metal sleeve pressed onto the pin. Maybe I am just not getting it, but I put heat on it for at least a min and a half. I got the leg wheels off in a second but these front ones are frustrating me.

    I'd say heat the sleeve or find another figure and figure a way to cut it out. What purpose do you need to remove the wheels for? Painting is possible with the wheel there.
