    King Grayskull's cape

    Is it possible to remove his cape without hurting the toy? it seems to be glued in at the top and just plugged in his back, however I don't want to end up tearing it off and not being able to reattach it. Anyone removed theirs?

    I literally removed it with my hands by pulling it off. It's just glue. You can probably boil it off if you don't want to risk any paint residue.

    does it stay when you reattach it?

    If he's just standing there, yes, it semi-"clips" into place and he's fine with it, but as soon as you go to move him, it wobbles and usually falls off.

    I do like the option of having it removable though. Hopefully the new version will have this as well as removable armor and a strap on the back for a weapon (like He-Man).

    I took mine off too. the only promblem is that the white glue they used is all over the place after removing the cape. i used an excato knief to remove most of it.

    hmm, maybe i'll just leave it on him until they reissue him, just to play it safe.

    I removed mine too by just pulling, it really was not hard. It sits on him still and you'd never know I took it off, but I think he looks kinda funny without it imo.

    I can't wait for the reissue late this year. I'm sure he'll have removable armor (and cape).

    I must reiterate that I really want a new/redone Spirit version, and I would not be opposed to a reissue of the statue version either.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    im with you on the spirirt figure. Make himn green but just re-issue him in some form so the mass can get him in some form.

    i'd been thinking of making a cape for my ba he-man figure like the one kgs has. no way i can make it from plastic so i was thinking of fabric. in order to make it bendable i'd put a couple of wires in it. fabric would be nylon royal red. a white fur trim at the top & golden design ribbon at the bottom. small metal chain to hold cape around figures neck.
    i'm having problems trying to put this together.
    does anyone have suggestions on how to make a cape for a toy.
    ???
