Has anyone removed a glued in rocket without putting damage to the rocket?

Reason I ask is I found a really nice near mint Taiwan black belt loose fett figure that has the rocket missing from it :-(

I want to get a beater fett, remove the rocket and put it back in the nice fett.

Are the rockets easy to remove?


Any advice on how to remove them?


Thanks in advance!!!

Some rockets are easier to remove than others depending on how well the sonic welding was done. You will need to 'sacrifice' another Taiwan Fett ( bust it open ) and it is still likely the rocket will show signs of damage. Just wait for a nice complete one to show up- collecting is never a rush.
