Well, as usual, I came by the wire tourniquet idea after snapping the rubber axle on the calf on that same figure the first time I disassembled it. Thing is, since the plastic is rather soft after the hot water dip, if you try to pull the joint directly with the pliers, the axle snaps as the force is directly applied to it.

Using the wire, the force is applied instead to the plastic outside of the articulation disc. 

Luckily, I could fix that using rubber cement.Wink
