    popping the heads back inside

    Hi guys,

    I'm having a hard time trying to pop the soft rubber heads back onto my vintage He-man figure.
    Is there an easy way to do this?
    OR, once popped off, is it done?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    thanks

    Most of the time I just twist it on to "start" it then finish with a very small flat blade screwdriver. If that particular figure has the plastic "safety" piece I just break that up with needle nose pliers and remove it. It is not necessary and was a safety feature for small children back in the day. It was about swallowing small loose parts off of an action figure.

    No problem Clayrebel, glad it helps.

    Sometimes watching someone else fix a figure makes it easier to do.
