    For those in here and the Radicons thread who suggested the soldering iron approach to removing pins... Wow that works fast!

    Pro Tip to Plus-Up the soldering iron technique, team it up with a rare earth magnet for minimal damage pin extraction!

    You may have already happened across this, and the other tip of dabbing a small smidge of superglue in the channel for security post-re-insertion?

    I hadn't come across either of those, but having bought the KO as a spare for parts and used that as my test piece, I did discover the knee was a bit loose upon refitting and thought it might need a bit of something to keep it tightened. It is also being painted though, which in itself will add some material thickness.

    TBH that's been a concern all the way along, hence trying to keep the coats thin, but with how much more floppy the KO is, Art of me does wonder if it would have been a better starting point :D

    Morning uk Tf fans. Has anyone else trying to get into Hasbro pulse been met with a page asking for your username and password? Never had this before and it's not accepting my details. Also not giving me a way to change my password via email. This is weird and I just wondered if anyone else is having the same problem. Cheers guys

    Me too! But I have him next to Titans Return Octane, who remains a remarkably wonky figure.

    Hope he's ok! 91 is impressive!

    Thanks. I've just checked again and I can now get straight onto the pulse page. This morning I was being asked for login details before I was even on the web page. Never had that before so might have been a hasbro end issue.

    Speaking as an IT guy - just in case, update your Hasbro Pulse password now and anywhere else that you use the same password. There's a teeny chance it's a "man in the middle" attack and something has just snapped up your password. Even if it's NOT, worth updating your password on Hasbro Pulse anyway, as a precaution.

    "I'm not sure what happened as I've only just arrived,
    but I did overhear someone say that they had heard the phrase 'no pets allowed'".
