    Ya... I managed to almost get that out. Then it stripped. Also, I chose to use super glue

    It’s drying. How long should I let it dry for?

    The safe zone to handle models is about a day.

    :wtf:  At least you can drill/remove it now right? How the heck did this happen? Did you use too much glue? Still....I dont think this should have happened.

    EDIT: BTW since you opened it, can you show me the eyes piece in a picture?

    Take one of the others that you removed (I assume they are the same?) and show it to an optics shop. They will probably have similar to it.

    Out of context question: You are from the US?

    I have the same problem with my 2007 movie Jolt. Was trying to see what kind of connection his neck had to see if a Jazz head I found on shapeways could work to make him an SG Jazz. But I seemed to have stripped it while putiing his head back on.
    Been spending days on and off trying the rubber band method. (probably with a inept band)

    I mean, you could always pry it apart like me if you’re going to replace the head.

    That plan kinda fell through atm. The head I planned to use needed a balljoint; He had a musroom peg. So until I can find a soulution, I'd rather not have a headlesshorseman bot.
