Whoa, who’d have thought there was a hidden 5mm phillips under the serial number that does the trick? I’ve had this little beauty hanging around for decades, and my six year old started using it as a flying saucer with his lego creations, and it took me three months of pandemic before I picked up my screwdrivers and tried to take it apart so that he could really use it. For now it’s just empty, and he closes some figures in it with a rubber band and flies it around. Someday I’ll get that dremel i’ve wanted and make him some sort of hatch and latch for it, maybe add some lego baseplate bits to it or something, it can join the rebel alliance for reals.
