    Just that. If you've actually done it, please let me know how. I need to take apart mine, and I want to make sure it goes all back together like nothing happend when I reasemble it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have done it, and unfortunately, all I can say is that it is virtually impossible to take it apart and put it back as though nothing ever happened. The parts are glued together, and to get them apart you either must disolve the glue or certain items must be broken, specifically the red button and gold part behind the emmiter.

    Your best bet is to try to disolve the glue with steam, and see if anything will come apart, if they won't you'll need to rip certain parts apart.

    If you have specific questions, let me know and I will try to help.

    That's what I was afraid of. It looked like some epoxy behind one of the gold 'greeblies'. I was just hoping they screwed it in though.

    emailing....

    Anyone else have any other advice?

    Possibly on how to steam the glue to release?

    Are you repairing it? I know a lot of MR Dookus have loose pommels (mine included) and I'd be interested to hear if anyone knows how to fix that.

    Well I took mine apart to chrome the back elbow to make it a ROTS Dooku. This pommel was loose too, so when I put it back together, I added some metal two part epoxy and it is solid as a rock now :)
