Hi Guys,

another newbie topic.

When i am over my hump of buying loose figures i will look into getting the vehicles and i have seen a lot of them in different shapes.

what interests me most is sound and lights in those vehicles. like i said i have seen many good looking toys but either the lights or the sound is not working and that would be really said to miss on either a part or the other if you bought a vintage tie or x-wing.

I was wondering if there was any expert on the subject matter or website that can tell you how to troubleshoot those problems and hopefully repair them.

any tips or insight is appreciated!

thanks

cheers!

99% of vehicles are repairable. Pull them upart, clean any connections & terminals, spin the motor up by hand, new batteries & job is done Smile

Guys it's not nearly as scary as it sounds. I bought about 20 vehicles 2yrs back in a big figure lot. I got every one of them repaired and it was never more than 10 minutes. The only thing I'd say is to not rush. Take your time while pulling it apart. Work is a non cluttered area and most importantly don't give up hope! Some of the motors took 5 to 6 minutes of winding and turning before they kick in.
