I have a BBE pony and I was wondering if someone know how to put the eyes back. I pushed them out to clean them, but now I can't figure out how to put them back into the head. Does anyone have any ideas?

AFAIK, there has been no successful eye transplant surgeries (unless eye removal is an option...?) :confused: I would’ve suggested FarDreamer’s website but seems there’s nothing there either.
Here’s a tutorial to replace the eyes into painted ones if there’s nothing else: link!

It's been done. I can't find the post right now but you gotta heat the heck out of those eye sockets.

Than you twishy.

I have tried that, using a hair dryer. So far the only result I get with that is the face caving in not the eye sockets expanding for the eyes to enter. :cry: I must make a tool to widen the opening or something, after the plastic is made more flexible by heat, unless someone can figure out something smarter and more effective then I can.

Total guess here, but a suggestion nonetheless: empty out a glue gun, make sure it's totally clean, then hold the nozzle end to the eye sockets and slowly push it in as it heats up? There's the risk of scorching the plastic still but most glue gun nozzles have a rubber coat which could help?

Smart, heat up only the eye sockets. Brilliant idé but terrifying method, I do not know how high the risk is of damaging the face in the process... I have to think about that. I thank you non the less for the suggestion ElpuntThing, a thought outside my box, if I dare try it, I'll share how it worked out.
