Im pretty sure someone already posted this question but i cant find it.

How do you get the gun on the Red Clone Trooper to stay in his hand for more than 10 seconds. It just wont fit at all. it is really ****ing me off.

Anyone have any sugestions?

Are you talking about the Tripod Cannon or the Heavy Blaster? I have no problems whatsoever with the Blaster, and I just let him lean against the Cannon so no problems there.

Glue it, that's all you can do or use those little elastic bands.

I used a soldering Iron to fuse the Vintage Leia's head to that white body of hers...and more figures later...like the Cloud Car pilot and the Death Squad Trooper....

Well...customizing at first....then repairing when the peg in the head broke!

I just suggest squeezing the hands together and holding them together for a few minutes, that usually bends them back so that you can make him hold it. Either that or use a hair-dryer or boiling water to soften the plastic and then hold the hang together while it hardens and it should harden in it's new state, if not then do it a couple times more times and it should give in.

That's cool Darth, maybe someday we'll see you working for Hasbro or something. Now that would be cool, then at least we would get some inside info and great figs eh .

I wish...the wonders I would do....

But seriously on the Clone Trooper...there is a hole for the trigger on my Heavy Blaster...and guess what there is a finger...a small finger but you may be able to get it into the trigger...I have mine poised like such....and when he falls down (which is very often because the post sucks...) he still has his blaster!.

Yeah I see what you mean, I just did it now, seems to fit great.
Lost my gun behind the computer the other day when Darth Dag fell over. Just found it now.

Thanks for the tips. I cant stand that dam blaster always falling out of his hand. If your gonna give a action figure weapons, i would think that one of the top things on your list should be making sure that the figure can hold or use them.

yeah, same hear, but it's possible. keep trying

Well, I don't know why you guys are having a problem with this figure. I have mine standing on my desk next to my computer holding the gun with both hands (one on handle, other holding the gun up). Its been in that pose for about 2 weeks now with no problems. And the tripod one fits very easily and pretty much holds the trooper up by itself.

Ya my gun hasn't fallen in out in while either, but mine is balencing oh so carefully.
