brick problems

Postby motorhead fan » Wed Oct 23, 2013 1:52 am

here they are:

i have 1 space rifle (the big part in an assuyian rifle) and the handle cannot be gripped by any minifig
it just slips out as soon as i move the arm, are they all like this?

floppy arms: they are so annoying and with my massvie dog standing on my minifigs now and then, im seeing more of this problem,
is there anyway to fix those with floppy arms and to stop it happening?

1. No. You just seem to have a worn out one.

2. Don't let your dog stand on your Lego. Maybe put your figs out of reach?

well for many years my room has been like a safehouse for my figs where they can lie around unused without being crushed

but recently my Mum has been leaving the door open and letting the dog in on purpose which is annoying

a good thing i found for floppy armed minifigs is to give them two handed weapons

There is that option; usually when I get a floppy armed minifig I just get on bricklink and replace either the torso itself or the arms. Most torsos without the arms are rather cheap.

I have a thought on this and I will try it out when I get home. Getting some plumber's Thread Seal Tape, it's a teflon tape that isn't sticky and is extremely thin, you could wrap the ball at the shoulder and insert it back into the torso. Might work wonders...I'll let you know. Save some money not having to replace torsos or arms.
I play with Lego because professional architectural creativity is stifled by bureaucrats, fools and reality.
