Maybe I should have put this in the main thread but was afraid it would not be seen. Anyway, I got Assaulter yesterday. His shoulders and elbows were a bit loose so I unscrewed both his shoulders to use the old floor polish trick. Anyway, the black shoulder pieces have this strange little spring. I know this is worthless without pics but those who have taken him apart know what I'm talking about. I was able to get the spring back in one shoulder, but the other's shoulder's screw hole was stripped so it can't go in tightly, so the damn spring just pops out with the slightest arm movement. My question is what exactly does the spring do? Would it hurt the transformation if I leave out the spring?
