I got some resin guardsmen and i want to change some of their arms/heads... Also they were glued over a decade ago (closer to 2 decades actually) and i have no idea what glue was used... How would one suggest taking then apart? It would be simple if they wernt resin.

I've heard of a lot of people just running it under hot water and prying it apart very carefully. I think that you can buy a debonder too. Don't use acetone though I have heard that resin will absorb it and bloat.

If I recall correctly, the old plastic stormtroopers had the heads cast in one piece with the torso and legs. The arms and backpacks were separate pieces. So to do head swaps, you will most likely have to cut their heads off... I had some of them back in the day, but my memory could be fuzzy with age.
