- SS085 [Full figure]
Since I wrecked my SS101 body and needed replacement, I have now a broken one, but it’s nice for showcasing how they are actually built.
As a sidenote, be careful when bending the torso. At least mine popped in the middle and it’s a pain to put them back together.
The torso is covered by this rubber part
It reamins in place via these notches
Removing the arms is a minor thing here.
Technically you could adjust the tightness of the shoulder joint here, however when loosen the screw the arm won’t hold up properly anymore.
This is how the shoulder holders are sitting on the torso
As soon you unscrew the torso you are bale to remove them. However, also the hip to chest connector gonna slip out and that’s the hard part to fix. More to that soon.
This is the core
Lower abdomen, belly and chest and connected via this spring
You push it in into the hip and close the two chest parts around its other end
Both ends of the srping are fitted into a round body and hold in place by a small plastic pin.
The big problem here is that the spring is not long enough to just connect the body parts on the fly. Otherwise the torso had no tension and wouldn’t stay upright.
In my case the spring is stretched and therefore broken/too loose now.
The key is inserting it into the hip, apply the belly and prepare the upper torso with the shoulder adapters.
Now pull the spring out, make sure the shoulder adapters don’t fall out and close the upper torso around the upper round body. Please note that the spring is very strong and tends to slip out of your grip.
It’s probably easier asking someone else for assistance.
I didn’t include wrist and foot pegs in this , which are easily accessable.
