    nekoi,
    I had the exact same problem with my Mitchell figure ,in fact mine arrived decapitated LOL anyhow I have found that the best way of getting the ball joints out of the head if it's broke is to use the good old fashioned boil the figures head method,
    If you put some boiling water in a mug and throw the head in and leave it about 3-4 mins the head should be soft enough to get the joint out with pliers,you can also "dig" carefully round it depending on how bad the thing is in there to "pop" it out,
    To take the figures heads of normally I usually just stick the whole figure in hot water ad wait until the neck socket goes soft then take the head off the ball joint should still be intact and attached to the head ready to pop into another heated body
    Hope this helps
    Kindest regards
    Tys

    Hi Yourself HirogenGater,
    I'm really glad I've found these forums it will give me some good Ideas for modding myself,
    Just a bit of info for you all,I've boiled my replicator carter today and disassembled her,and guess what there's potential for a vest mod with combat vest over the top!!!!!
    Underneath the jacket of replicator carter if you take the arms off and slip the overcoat off you will find a vest top,
    Now don't get me wrong it ain't perfect ie her right boob is effectivly missing LOL but if you then slip a combat vest over the top you'll never see this slight problem,I've taken the arms off my avalon Vala and I'm going to attempt to attach those on to the Carter figure as well,will let you know if it's successful,
    Kindest regards

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Sweet idea. You're my friend. I've been wondering what to do with my leftover Replicarter body. I didn't like the idea of it going to waste. All I could think of was adapting it for some random Tok'ra but I still didn't know how I was going to go about it. I really like this idea. Would love to know how this works out for you, TYS.

    A little off topic, but I'm curious if this method would work for hands too [or would that just be a tad too small an area?]. I think Mitchell's a problem child , mine showed up today and his left hand almost twisted right off. I'd like to replace it, but wondering if maybe I shouldn't touch it and just leave it alone.

    Thanks for your time.

    Hi Soong,
    Don't worry my friend you're not off topic this is a thread for customising figures ,you'e gotta break em to make em LOL
    Yes this does work on the hands as well (or on any joint on the bodies for that matter) just watch that the joint hasn't started to snap ie you may end up with a wrist socket full of hand joint, make sure you get them hot enough,My Col O'neill offworld figure has got black ops O'neill hands,you have to watch out on some of them though as the hands won't fit very well ie black ops hands don't quite fit on Tshirt O'neill's arms

    Try Teal'c legs on O'neill body that works quite well also,

    Kindest regards

    Hey Tys

    Thanks you very much...while, yes, he basically has a snapped joint, the hand is hanging on by a thread it seems, so I think I'll try to remove it before it falls off completely. I have a bag full of extra hands that came with various figures, I'm sure one of those will work *hoping*.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Soong,
    Be very careful with the joint if it's like that,You'll need to heat the arm up in a cup of hot water from a kettle,watch ya don't burn your fingers LOL and then I would recommend careful digging around the hole of the wrist to try to pop the hand free,I doubt that there is enough strength in the hand to support a pull out but you never know if it's hot enough it may,
    Let us know how you get on mate,

    Kindest regards

    That's great. Did you paint green Carter black and then swap heads with Replicarter?

    Nice job Sg1_fan! I for one am loving all these 'Ripple Effect' SG-1 teams that everyone is making.

    Yesterday was my day off so I relaxed by finishing up my Season 10 team as well. I'll try to post pictures soon.

    Hopefully the rest of the figures I ordered arrive by the weekend so I can finish up my custom green offworld teams.

    Nice progress Norrin! It may take you longer to finish things, but the quality looks superb. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    Sweet deal, Norrin. I love in progress pics, I learn so much. Also reminds me that I still want to pick up the 300 figures.

    Could I ask what primer/paint combo you use in general? I’m still experimenting with brands myself.

    For Primer I just use the .97 cent grey spray can @ Wal-Mart.
    Most of my other paints are in the craft section at the same store. I forget the brand names, but they have 3 different kinds. I’ll check & post the name later.
    But for any metallic needs (Gold, Silver, Bronze) I use the type you can see in the second pic. Sophisticated Finishes. I find the at Michels, a craft store. They turn out much better than any other paints I’ve tried for that purpose.

    Does anybody know the actual color of the US Air force uniforms, as worn in Stargate. I know they are "blue", but can anyone be more specific. I have a General Jack that I want to customize. Many Thanks.

    Are you talking about the BDU uniforms? The ones in the show are bleached or were washed heavily. You can find BDU uniforms at bdu.com or other places but only in a navy blue. You will have to wash it to get that lighter blue color.

    If you are going to paint a General Jack then you are going to have to mix some colors to get the proper combination.

    Hahahaha, of all the stores I've checked out it never occured to me to browse through Walmart. I guess they do have everything.

    Thanks for all the info, really helps.
