    Mine's arriving today and I need the wings to fix my Henkei Thrust. When I removed the one intact wing from the Henkei version, I saw some stress marks on the base of the post. I didn't use any heat or cold because I really couldn't care less about the "zebra lightning" wings. Now how do I get the wings off of the Generations Thrust without causing any stress marks? Keep in mind that I'd much rather not break the wing-holding pieces on the Generations Thrust to achieve successful wing removal.

    They do, but with stress marks.

    No it only comes off one way short of placing it in warm water to soften it up first

    No. Fun Publications has asked that we do not provide solicitations to things they have commissioned from Hasbro.

    Seems like a lot of trouble to go through when some rubbing alcohol and a q-tip could've removed those stripes.

    One of the wings is broken and it's basically unusable. It doesn't matter if I were to repaint them.
