  1. Hi, 28 year old AFOL here, I'm still new to Eurobricks but I thought this was as good a place as any to ask this. I've been a fan of LEGO all my life but like many took a break in my teen years or so. And I came out of my Dark Age with Ninjago. I've got all the sets (Though I am missing some of the more spinner-centric sets from the earlier range as it didn't interest me so much.) However the point of this post is to ask if anyone has advice for how to remove the trigger mechanism, or specifically the spring from the piece in the title: Brickset Link I don't generally have a problem with launcher pieces even if they're not something I use as they've generally had some means of rendering them safe, such as the hole for a Technic Pin in the back of the rubber missile pieces or simply not putting the trigger piece in on the more recent stud launcher. These shooters however have no apparent way of doing that other than not loading the missile. Unfortunately on sets such as the Boulder Blaster this effects the aesthetics of the model be it the orange tips of the missile or the two-tone grey launchers themselves. In addition to this these launchers seemingly have such a hairspring trigger that leaving them with the missiles in while not in use is not an option (when assembling it I narrowly missed taking my brother's eye out with one of the missile which shot off to parts unknown.) The safety concerns of such a piece from LEGO who are generally safety minded aside what I would most like to do is either remove the spring from inside the shooter or cut it so that I could place the missile safely within. Alternatively any suggestions for methods of adding a 'safety' such as the one I mentioned for the Rubber tipped missiles would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance ~ Xaran :)
