    I don't know, but I'd guess it's the same only smaller. Might need to use smaller screws

    I've tried the o-rings fix myself and found that the hardest part was threading the ring through the hole. I finish one leg and get the eye hook and o-ring attached correctly. Then I use a length of wire to guide the ring through and then catch it using a small screw driver like this one:

    After that, I connect the other eye ring to the ring, and then screw the other leg onto the ring, not screw the ring into the leg. That works really well for me, and so far I have fixed three figures this way.

    I've never fixed Teela, but I used it on Evil Lynn, and yes just get smaller parts.

    Can Vintage He-man leg rubberbands be replaced?

    I have a vintage MOTU figure that I would like to know if there is someone on this forum that can replace/fix leg rubberbands? The figures legs are very loose and was wondering if replacing it would make it better for the toy to stand?

    Thanks.

    You can replace them but you need a figure to take a good band from. Or you can do the eye screw method.

    This is my favorite method. It's easy after you try it a time or two:

    Definitely the easier way and easy to do! I only change out the bands if I have a crappy figure that will donate their band.

    My method to repair broken/torn legs on vintage figures. Your experience?

    My method to repair broken/torn legs on vintage figures. Your experience?

    I cultivated my method (see video) to repair my vintage figures legs. I mean they older they get, the more "wobbly" they get and most of theme would not stand (I made the experience that the Southern-Europe-produced figures would break way quicker). With every figure, it is a bit of a challenge as "dimensions" vary.

    What's your experience on that and do you have another method to repair the legs (glue them does not count as 'repairing' ;-))?
