Taking the screw out of the keychain

Post by Darth Yoda on Mon Jan 19, 2009 11:53 pm

Well, I first tried this in the summer. I got a plo koon key chain, and managed to break the pin under his head creating a little hole on the top, and a leg and torso stuck together. Before Christmas I got an Emperor keychain and gave that one a go. I failed, the keychain broke with a little stub at the top of his head. Now, I got multiples of assaj ventress, and ashoka. Can anybody find me that tutorial y one of the mods or admins on fbtb on how to get the whole screw out? Thanks. Feel free to talk about these methods here as well. Smile

There's a method where you thread a large paperclip through the loop and pull using pliers and some rubber grip, but I've found that the new keychains are too tightly stuck together for that to work. I actually ended up constructing a rather elaborate contraption out of a wood vice in the garage that worked really well. I'll check tomorrow to see if it's not been dismantled - if it's still there, I'll take some pics.

Shouldn't this go into the Decal and Techniques thread?

I just get my dad (who does everything when I want Lego to be modded (he once bought me a small set because he destroyed a minifig hook and had to glue it, since he felt guilty Razz)) to just cut the pin above the head away, and then I just paint it. I got a Snowtrooper and Imp guard by that way. I rather have a minfig which you cannot disassemble then one with a hole in it's head. I also used the Snowtrooper before as a keychain but he;s still pretty nice.

Well, I don't know about the screw, but you can remove the legs with pliers (just the side parts) that's how I got my two "max" pouch legs.

Maybe if I ever get Senate Commandos cheaply I should get the magnet instead of the keychains from now on...

Hmmm.

How big is the hole in the helmet? It looks like it might be useful if the right size...

You should talk. Razz

IMO bricklink is better, I just got a senate commando helmet for 2 bucks there, it's easier than ordering and breaking a keychain.
