    I hate starting threads like this, but I really need some help disassembling some G1 Transformers. Specifically, I'm interested in knowing the following:

    1. G1 Octane: Is there a trick to separating the gray plastic part that forms his upper wing from the chrome section that forms the bottom half without breaking it? I managed to do one, but created a major stress mark and fracture in the process, something I'd rather not repeat. :( 

    2. G1 Windcharger and Huffer: Is there any way to separate the wheels from the figures without breaking anything?

    I've checked the available Radicon guides people have posted in response to earlier questions I asked, but these problems I'm having defy simple categorization. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :)

    1) Why would you want to do that in the first place?

    2) I think not.

    I have my reasons. Assuming my experiment works out, I'll post the results in this thread.

    D'oh. :(

    Well, it's eight months later, and, as utterly disappointed as I am that this thread was almost completely ignored, I'm keeping my end of the bargain from my opening post and showing pictures of the finished product:

    The chrome was redone, but not by me. I used a professional service by the name of Chrome Tech USA, which re-vacuum-metalized my parts for me for reasonable prices. :)

    Parts look great! I've used them before myself.
