Lego just came out with a new Brick Separator, which has a technic "+" pin on it so you can push out stubborn technic pins, whether they be circular or "+" shaped. Also, the back can be used to pry apart incredibly stuck-together bricks that the front can't unstick.

Finally! I was getting tired of using things equivalent of this sometimes.

Anybody know if the Brick Separator has to be bought separately, or if it comes with certain sets?

To my surprise, you get one packed with one of the Super Heroes set, the one with Two-Face.

Nice! The old one worked some of the time, but not all of the time.

This is the swiss army knife of MOC dissembling.

Its about time, I've gotten sick of trying to constantly remove technic pins with other technic pins...

I use my teeth. Automatically. And it works, most of the time.

Not-sharp pocket knife. Dull enough not to hurt yourself, sharp enough to get between blocks.

As for pins, I just use other pins to push them out.

Pft, using your teeth. Use pliers, you aren't cavemen. Also, you don't get bitemarks all over your pins.

I have 3 old brick separators and two pairs of pliers, and yet I still use teeth and fingernails. Maybe it's just because they're so much more convenient? :?

You should get that lump on your arm looked at by a doctor.
It might be cancer.
