How do I fix my GI Joe action figures?

Replace that O-Ring

First, make a supply run. Walk into Ace Hardware and ask for a pack of #9 rubber O-Rings and you’ve got your start.

Second, take the screw out of the Joe’s back. The O-Ring went around a peg in the center of a Joe, then looped down to hold on the hips and legs.

Lastly, put it all back together.

How do you replace GI Joe hands?

Ivan1GFP said: I swap out GI Joe hands all the time. If you don’t care about reusing the Gung-Ho hands, just dip the hand and forearm in boiling water for about 30 seconds or so and just pull. You will probably deform the hand though.27-Jul-2010

How do I adjust the grip on my action figure?

Heat it up with a hairdryer or hot water, hold it in the shape you want, and then submerge it in cold water so that it cools fast. Beware that you could damage and break the figure if you are trying to contort it too much, so be cautious with this method. It works best with softer, more pliable plastics.

 

How can I tighten my loose hands?

Push the hour hand against the clock shaft. Friction holds the hour hand on the shaft, and pushing it back onto the shaft will tighten it. Once you tighten the hour hand, rotate it too the correct time. Tighten the nut on the end of the shaft holding the minute hand.
