Sorry about how that sounds :-) Been a long day. When I was assembling these, it did not occur to me right away that an awful lot of the weapon arm sets on these figures had the squiggly swords.
Now that I have done a half a dozen of them, it is a bit easier, but there was definitely a challenge involved.
I suppose it's all for the best to have such a challenge, and evolve the technique a bit int the process. :-)
