    Hey guys, I'm packing up a bunch of my figures for sale and I have no idea if I can take off Metroplex's arm so I can put him back in his box. If this is possible at all, I don't know. I don't want to simply force it off and risk breaking anything.

    If there are ways to get the arm off, please let me know. I'd greatly appreciate it. Pictorial or video always helps too! :)

    You should be able to reach on the inside of the compartment and squeeze the tabs together enough to take the arm off.

    I've just pulled it straight back out without any damage or having to push any tabs in. Didn't require too much force either, I was kinda surprised.

    As far as going inside and finding tabs, I have no idea what you're talking about. Do I have to unscrew the torso or something?

    No, just open up his right boob ramp, reach in and squeeze the tabs.
