    i love my gundam action figures.
    i love my modest TMNT collection.

    but jeez, what is it with the plastic weapons/accessories that come with em...they are frustrating.

    it is hard to be intimidated when Donatello's staff has more bends in it than a confused python.
    or a gundam's red sword looks more like a scimitar.

    some of my weapons were misshapen after the move, but is there a way to fix this?

    I have had varied luck (about 75% success) using the following method:

    Heat the part up in hot water or using a hair dryer. Then straighten the part out and put it in ice water. Some parts if they are too soft of plastic end up warping right back over time, but others have stayed fine.

    Either way it does no damage to anything, so is worth a try.
