I need to find space to display all mine. Already have 15 plus one extra SS Frankie that's still in the box. Some of my poor bjd's are hiddened behind them on the self I have them on.

Hey everyone~

This might seem like a weird question.. But do any of you know how to remove the legs off the MH dolls? Just at the knee joint..

My daughter broke the leg off her Abbey doll and it snapped the plastic piece inside. I've tried to take the leg off one of my older dolls to paint and replace it. But damn if I can get them off without fearing that I'll break the plastic piece inside them too...

Any help would be loved!

Three new dolls arrived in the mail today!
Werecat Twins and an SS Frankie which I LOVE, something about a monochromatic doll thrills me.

You can't really. Not with the basic dolls at least.The CAM sets are made to have their legs removed, but the normal dolls have a peg in the thigh that gets wider at some point, so it's not removable without some rigorous modding.
You can split the thigh at the seams with an exacto knife and remove it like that, but that's the only way as far as I know.

Why would you get the CAM sets if you're not going to do anything with them? I get the collectable value of leaving the regular dolls in their boxes, but the sets are made to customize and play with.
Don't take me wrong, I'm not judging or anything, I'm just really curious.
For those of you that are wondering...the Gory Gazette put up a notice after the April Fool's prank that said Billy WAS joining the student bodies (meaning: becoming a doll), but that he hasn't 'materialized' just yet. biggrin

Hm. Well that is horribly disappointing. I guess I'll just have to cut one out.
Thank you for the answer!

After hearing of so many broken dolls I'm starting to wonder why Mettle hasn't come out with better quality MH dolls. I must say even when playing rough with my dolls as a child I've never broken a Barbie.

(( On a side note! Hola, I'm Vanissha! Invisible woman's daughter! I'll be getting a OC doll made of me very soon. ))

I am a very bad collector.
None of mine stay in the box
and the only box I have kept in mint condition
would be my Comic Con Ghoulia.

Can anyone tell me why SS Frankie's head won't stay on straight? She's looking up and I want her to look straight. emo
