View Full Version : 25th Crotch Mods and Loose Joints Question
11-14-2007, 02:49 AM
Anyone know how to mod the 25th figure crotches to make them more RAH like?
Also, the leg joints of my Joe Battle Pack figures are all really loose, anything I can do about that?

I've heard many different ways to make the legs stiffer. One is to put a coat of clear nail polish on the area where the hips and the top of the legs touch. The other is to take the leg apart, there are these small white things inside called "friction plugs" that the T-bar sits in. If you turn them around so the flat side is now against the T-bar instead of the indented side, it's supposed to make the legs stiffer.
As for the crotch mod, the easiest is to take the legs off, then use an exacto knife and cut away at the crotch area

FLIP THOSE FRICTION PLUGS!
i swear its the best fix since... well since 25th design problems lol
unless your friction plugs are MISSING completely from the figure. like my cobra officer. :eek:
cut tiny squares of double-sided foam tape, stack inside the hole where the friction plug should be, until desired amount of tightness is achieved. :D

Thanks! Fixed Duke's and Gung-Ho's crotches, Flint will be next, but I might leave Beachhead, I'm pretty happy with him as he is.
Also fixed Gung-Ho's loose legs (thanks to the Double-Sided Tape method).

yay! glad my advice was helpful!
was your gung ho missing the friction plugs completely? that's weird.
i actually never heard of them full on MISSING until i opened my cobra officer and his dagger leg (left) was just floppidy-flip-flop. :eek:
but yeah the double-sided foam tape works like a charm! glad it worked for you too!
