I haven't tried it yet but I'm curious if this method works on Star Wars figures who have the mid chest or lower ab swivel joint like GiJoes do. Anyone tried that yet?

My first foray into the torso splitting realm ended in... SUCCESS!
Dunked my figure in a cup of boiling water.
Soaked 5 mins.
Small flat head screw driver to the back of the neck and gently twisted until "crack!".
My ROC Cover Girl now has her own Indy Jones jacket and new arms to go with it!
Thanks HISS Tankers!

The upper legs are held together with a screw.
For the lower legs and feet, if you just heat them up like the torsos, the feet can be gently twisted and pulled out.
The knees can also be gently pried out with a small flat head screw driver or exacto. Be careful not to tear the lower leg part. The knees are held in with a peg all the way through the lower leg. Pry between the knee and the lower leg joint from the back, on the inside of the leg where the peg is larger. At least this is the easiest way I found.

I really, really, really, really wish that hasbro would've used the back screw for the upper torsos. It would make this so much easier.

Hasbro didn't want us to customize these. Thus costing them money from all the extra figures we would buy. WE SHOWED THEM!!!
