How do I fix a...
Broken Metal Crotch Piece?
Remove the back screw and take the figure apart. Also remove the leg screws, disassemble the legs and discard the broken metal T-hook. Reassemble the figure with a new T-hook. These T-hooks are hard to find. Always save them from damaged figures. Even an otherwise useless GI Joe figure will always contain a valuable T-hook. Always be careful with the waist piece when taking figures apart and putting them back together. The skinny crotch piece is very fragile and we all eventually break one (like my 1984 Duke). The plastic gets dry and brittle over the decades.
