    Does anyone know how to remove the screw hole covers on the back of the waist on iceman? I got a copy with a broken leg a couple weeks ago and just got the replacement part in but now i can't get the damn waist apart because of these screw hole covers.

    Did you get replacement screw covers from FT? I did, that way you can drill out the old ones.

    Get a drill bit that's smaller in diameter and drill slowly into the cover. When the bit bites into the plastic, you pull the drill and drill bit out and the cover comes with it. Drill a few mm deep to be sure. You can't keep the covers anymore due to the drill hole hence why I asked if FT sent replacements

    You could try using strong glue with something like a cocktail stick to get them out. Possible you could clean them after and put them back

    Thats rumored on a monthly basis. just like With WJ. except with WJ there were 2-3 years of people claiming they were raided before it actually happened for real.

    They have not been raided. They are still working on the last couple limbs of both the Stunticons and Aerialbots, among many other figures, both new and repackaged old cra- I mean new reissues of older product.

    You don’t get raided unless you mess with the Mouse.
