Anyone got an idea how to best attach Wolverine to the newton ball plate?

The weight of it probably doesn't lend itself well to either hot glue or velcro. I'm leaning towards drilling out the bottom and installing a threaded anchor, which I can then bolt to the plate.

My response jinxed me, my Wolverine was held on with hot glue and he came off last night in a long Wolverine mb. I’ll probably do what you suggest and screw him in from the bottom.

I had the exact same figure on mine and put a screw through the bottom of it to hold it on. Worked great and never came loose...

I super glued mine but lined the holes up and lightly dremeld him so i could get screws in. Move him over the back two screws and trace out what you need to dremel with a marker. Use a cone tip. Hes bery soft and its easy. Now i know he wont come loose and i can remove the plate to change rubbers etc

I got the threaded anchor and screw installed and worked out well. Easy to unscrew wolverine to do maintenance.

Well, I had an airball break off one of Wolverine's arms. Anyone know where to purchase replacement wolverine model?

You should do what I did to mine. Furniture pad/slider and ripped off the fabric. Then I painted it blue and cleared it. Then I ran a screw up through the bottom of the mod mounting plate. I also cleared Wolvie to match the rest of the game and put blue post rubbers on. Thing is rock solid and looks slick!

LOL...that didn't take long. You know the exact same thing happened to Tom's, right? I used the stock Wolvie...just cut his belt off and get him positioned just right and he'll fit.
