If like me, some of your older action figure rubber/vinyl boots are hard to put on or take off your figures feet, then follow this easy tip:

Heat up the offending boots with a hair dryer until they are softer and more pliable, tip plenty of talcum powder inside each boot and also apply talc to the figure's feet, it will make it easier to get the boots on or off again... I use a folded piece of paper to act as a makeshift funnel to get the talcum power channeled into each boot, once inside the boots pinch the high top boot together and tap the boot on a hard surface, this should spread the talcum powder evenly inside each boot, any excess talc can be wiped off the boots with a damp cloth when your figure has been dressed. Some boots over time go a little bit hard, and heat softens them again, talcum powder prevents the boots from sticking to the figure's feet. The Hasbro talcum powder tip dates back to the original G.I.Joe rubber boot days of 1964!

Good luck MAMsters.
