    DAM body cut in half :(

    DAM body cut in half :(-20170713_000210-jpg
    ok i got this body loose as new, put it in a box.
    pulled it out this week to dress up and it fell in half!
    bit disappointing.
    anyone got tips on putting it back together? its a neckless body.

    aah you slipped a disc!
    With some tweezer or plier work you should be able to slip it back into the torso...I've had this happen to many a Dragon body.

    HOORAY!
    you were correct! but it did take a fair bit of messing around, had to slacken the screws off in that section of body too.
    but hes back together
    thanks for the advice.

    Taking the screws out is usually not the problem, usually the problem is the body seams are welded so you can't get them apart even if you remove the screws. If the seams will come apart the DAM body is one of the easiest ones to put back together. Glad to see you go it fixed.
