    I've decombined my POTP Abominus...aaaaand now the dragon heads are stuck inside his legs. I've tried to remove them, used tweezers, they're stuck and I'm not sure how to get them out of there without ripping the figure apart or the tweezers scratching the sides horrible.

    Try using a plastic spudger tool? Or anything that is plastic and has some give?

    I just use those dental floss picks, the study plastic dispoable ones for prying, loosening, un-stucking. Nothing gets scratched or breaks, since the pick is weaker than the toy plastic.

    You might be able to slip it under the dragonhead and pry it out? I dunno.

    Don't have pics but basically those shared legs with the Silverbolt mold engineering got these feet which are also the dragon heads which collapse into the leg's hollow part. I think the jaws are misplaced and now the heads are stuck.

    Do you have a phillips #0 screwdriver? I just tried watching a youtube vid and it looks like the legs are held together in place with screws. Try taking apart the legs.

    This sometimes happens on my version. I generally just get something like a gun tip or lego 3mm post and push through from the forward ankle hole.
