On the 'Dear Hasbro' section, I started a thread about Hasbro making figures with straight legs so the figures could fit in vehicles, i.e., Anakin in his speeder.

This weekend, I was looking at the chop-socky Anakin closely and noticed his legs were pretty straight and could possibly fit in the speeder. I thought, maybe attaching the legs to another Anakin torso would do the job.

This leads up to my questions:

* Has anyone tried to swap body torsos with action features? And if you did, how did you do it? I've removed heads easily by the hot water method but I haven't tried it with a body.

* Does the action feature still work? I'm curious more than anything else.

I reused kit fisto's arms and torso. His formerly springed arm is a little loose in the new body but the mechanism came out easily enough. I did have to destroy the anchor for the spring, but it did not seem to hurt anything. The new arm fit in the socket and hold it's position well.
