    Let me check my parts bin, they're all disassembled. I know I need to save one for Sinestro and one for Black Panther.

    I need to dig out the Mantas, too. It slipped my mind over the holiday, I'm getting so woolly-headed.

    This might help for removing the DC Retro head

    I just dug out and opened my Black Mantas this morning. I'm not going to try the boil method, because the helmet is in two parts: The top is vinyl, glued to a solid plastic base/neck guard. I'm afraid it would all pull apart, and I need at least one of those heads. I'm sorry, Darkbros.

    Also, I have to say that these figures have not aged at all well. The bodies are extremely floppy. The glue on the helmet has cracked and discolored. Double-sided tape was used to position the belt in front and has left a sticky, oily residue on the bodysuit.

    Question--I was able to very cleanly crack apart a figure to extract a head--do you want the pieces & replace the elastic for the legs?

    Yikers!
    Can you post a pic of how cracked it is? Would I be able to Seal the Crack with Super Glue, or is it so bad that it can't be sealed?
    ( Hopefully a straight seam crack along the sides of the torso?)

    Just trying to get a sense of what I'll be working with here.....Still interested though....
