Dear CAD bros/sisters:

any advise will help.

So I think I fucked up big time. was trying to push the 2.0 arm back to the minil "L" shape connector (that's between the body and the arm), while squadt is still clothed.

and I think I pushed it too hard! now the squadt rattles pale Evil or Very Mad

I tried to "pinch" it out, but after an hour, failed. T_T

any suggestions?

No worries. Use a hair dryer or heat gun to soften the body and take off one of the legs. Should be able to get it out no problem.

The vinyl at the top of the leg is pretty stout but with a little extra heat I've always been able to remove them.

I haven't figured that one out. Played around with the idea after seeing pics of one sitting (can't remember who's custom that was). Don't know the secret, sorry.

I remember that chipp, I think that piece was for display only because I never saw it on sale.

the other custom I saw of a squadt sitting down was a Germ done by manny, but I believe he drilled different holes in order for the squadt to sit.

Believe it was manny's custom I am thinking of.

Wouldn't be hard to re-shape the leg holes and sculpt the legs into place with Magic Sculpt.

Man this happened with my Germ... I played a game of "find the hole" lol! got some needle nose pliers (wrapped in cloth) and grabbed the joint. Once you get it out its pretty easy to grab. Good luck and dont stress... and take your time.

What i do when it is impossible to get it out I pour a little glue in the opening and shake the piece till it glues it self. No more rattle.

  • Get an unsharpened pencil.
  • Take all the clothing and both arms off the Squadt Body.
  • Roll the body around until the L-connector piece that fell inside is "sitting" in the arm hole. The Squadt body should be horizontal and the arm hole that is holding the loose connector should be facing down.
  • Put the pencil through the OTHER arm hole and push down on the arm connector until it pops through the bottom arm hold. You might need to rotate the loose piece using the pencil in order to get it to fit through the arm hole.

I apologize for all of the issues with the 2.0 arms. They are in the process of being re-re-designed Smile and should now work without issue. study

no need to do this for the squadt arm issue...just heat up the body (hair dryer) and remove a foot to retrieve the piece inside.

I have yet to encounter any issues with the arms, probably because I do not exert any strength when handling my squadts. Hope the redesign will maintain the 2.0 flexibility

They will be the exact same in terms of articulation..just not so easy to come apart.

So happy arms are being updated/fixed. With my poor coordination, I have being using the OG arms instead of the new ones. New ones never stay together for me. Thanks for looking out for us Ferg. Or at least looking out for us the uncoordinated amongst you.
