    Hey I was taking apart my animated prime this weekend and when I was about to take apart the arm that holds the shield I found head of both srews busted. Any tips to removing the srews in his arm?

    drill them out will probably be your best option, then you might be able to put in larger screw since the size of the hole has changed

    Stripped screws? I used a soldering iron for one of those back in the day. It ended up melting the surrounding plastic, but I was able to patch it up afterwards.
