I want to repaint the ships and i would like to remove them from the stands. It it not easy. Did you guys try it? I don't want to put the minis into the freezer because i don't want to damage the paper inserts in the click wheels.

Mine popped off the stands pretty easily. They are glued but apparently not very well.
I didn't like having to use the clix things and replaced them with acrylic stands.

If you look back into the early days of this forum, you'll see a thread or two where people show how they used paper cones, wrapped around the stand, so to isolate only the ship model for painting. (That seemed to be the popular method as people didn't want to break the model from the stand).

I used the paper cones method - it works.

I finally succeeded. One has to be patient, and slowly wiggle them out.

"Patient?" I see you have written letters but I do not understand what they mean.

Several of mine broke off on their own. I need to figure out how to attach them again.

I filed it flat and glued small neodymium magnets on.

Those would have to be pretty small. Though that is an interesting idea. The bottom of the broken ship and the base do not seem to connect well.

I was thinking a tiny pin of some sort, though it might be too tiny to work.

I had a guest break one off of its stand (THE enterprise...), I was able to sand both sides and use super glue and it is not noticeable now.

I have the Enterprise and Defiant both off their stand (and one other I recall). I may try the "sand smooth" approach to see if that works.

Thanks for the pointer!

You're welcome, I used a high grain (smooth) sandpaper. You only need to make a little bit of "texture" for the superglue to hold on.
