Can anyone please advise on how to remove the head off a modern action man.  I've acquired one that needs reflocking as he's gone prematurely bald!

best bet is to either pop his head into very warm water. This will soften the head enough to pull the head off the inside peg. But the real expert in this area is brownboots  cheers

Hi mate. Usually a quick warm up with a hair dryer or held under hot tap for a short time works for me. Hope thar helps

boile a pan of water till it's hot and put the head into the pan of hot water till the head softens up but that's what my dad dose, he helps me or brownboots helps me Very Happy hes the expert on this area as Ross said. What color of reflocking is your modern action man head going to be ? hope we get to see photos of the finished modern action man when hes been flocked ?

All the above work, personally I just hold the head over
A steaming kettle till it becomes pliant. The twist heads
Are easier the swivel heads are a bit trickier as you'll need to
Soften up the underside of the neck I usually prop the chin
On the kettle and try to reveal as much of the underside as possible.
If I have to replace a head I've painted I'd use a hair dryer as the steam will
Interfere with the paint and varnish.

Bon Chance!
