    Sure no problem, this Sunday i'll put up my first Tutorial explaining my Technique for re-stringing Doc Mego, Type 2 and Bif Bang Pow's Swivel arm body that sells for $7 at Doc Megos site. To me the Doc Mego body and the aforementioned bodies are the best to re-string because of the friction you get in the arm + leg region (upper and lower torso socket area). The friction helps with the poseability. Back in the days I started with #64 size rubber bands. However, they only lasted about 1 year. The elastic string that i currently use has been in my action figures for many years now. In terms of re-stringing these bodies...I'm specific to my liking for example, for holding rifles and machine guns i prefer the BBP swivel arm (for my Cowboys, POTA and AJ figures), and the regular Doc Mego body for Star Trek and Mego Superheroes. However, if you don't want to deal with rubber bands, the Type S body is 2nd to none...Simply the best.

    My Re-stringing version gives the action figure the dual feel of a Type 1 and a type 2 Mego body...for the poser collector at heart. Hence, the picture below showing full ROM on a re-strung Doc Mego body using the 'Out of Print' swivel arms that Castawaytoys use to sell (those were cool). Additionally, another key element with restringing these bodies is the "Arm Loop" near the arm/torso socket. I'll be more specific on my Tutorial on Sunday. Until then.....Vaya Bayomon
