TEKTON 66061 1/16-Inch Roll Pin Punch

This is the type of thing you should be looking for.
Not sure how familiar you are with pin removal, but also make sure you are pushing it out from the correct end. One end of the pins are thicker and textured to keep them in place. You should be pushing from the opposite end of that, so it comes out first. Then you can pull it out with pliers as the rest of the pin is smooth.

There are plenty of tutorial videos on YouTube.

Here’s one:

You’ll find more just by typing is ‘Transformers pin removal’

The most important thing you’ll have to keep I mind is to not let the punch slip. That’s how you’re going to end up damaging the figure.

Practice on a cheaper figure first, if you have one. I know I had to

I’m not sure about the freezer, sorry.

I take it that putting the thing in the freezer probably wouldn't be a good idea due to how clear plastic is more fragile to begin with?

It's to bad they didn't put these things on ball joints. You could get some really neat spirals going if they had.

Re: Customizing Q&A Thread

Thanks. Unfortunately, even with clear plastic, both sides look the same. I can say that on all of them, the pin goes flush to the side of the plastic, and on the other side it is recessed into the hole. I'm not sure which end to punch actually. lol
