    I am planning to do a parts swap and/or dye job with Transmetal Megatron (remove the brown parts that like to break) and Armada Predacon. I have a "donor" Predacon figure mostly ready to go, but I can't seem to remove one of the pins, no matter what I try. I was hoping someone might be able to help me.

    It's the pin which holds on the turbines/backpack. One end is small and the other is large. First I snipped off the Predacon turbine parts as I would not be using them. To remove the pin, I tried hammering on the small side and also tried using a soldering iron to heat the entire pin (got that section of the figure hot enough to cause me pain), but the darn thing won't budge. Can anyone offer some advice?

    In considering the problem a bit further, I think I've decided to disassemble it a bit differently. I found that the pin on his, erm, butt comes out much more easily with the pin/hammer technique. But I'd still like to know how to get out that other pin!
