Mr Action Outfits are always short in the arms...my solution to this problem is to put on an undershirt to cover the wrist area of the figure..It's not perfect but it works../size]Broken Wrist 012[size=18]Today i was doing so with my figure and the hand broke off... Shocked Mad Broken Wrist 013I drilled a hole in the center of the broken wrist pin and soaked it in boiling water...Broken Wrist 016[size=18]I then took a wood screw and screwed it in a little and with a little work...Waalaa !! iIt popped out. cheers Broken Wrist 020I had a few spare hands but I had to cut half of the pin away so it would fit right...Broken Wrist 027This is what he looks like now....Broken Wrist 026....Walt
