The ML Shield Problem (the accessory, not the organization)

Mon May 03, 2021 3:49 am

To the point:

The wrist connector for ML shields often break, in my experience. Take it off or put it on too many times, and the stress cracks begin to show... and we all know what comes next. Your fig either holds it by the peg (if possible), or it's put on his back (again, if possible)...

So - does anyone know where one might find a replacement - in that, is anyone 3d printing that specific peg/wrist connector or does anyone know of another option, other than sticky-tack or the like. Looking for a more permanent solution.

You would have to mod the figures and the shield but small rare earth magnets.

I also saw a person make a new clip using small gauge wire.

Much appreciated, Fly4v. I'm gonna check that video out now.

I want to avoid modding the figure as much as possible (mostly because I've become VERY lazy these days, haha).

Could always do narrow elastic bungee and hot glue.
