    Oh dear. Well, mine doesn't have them anymore. I removed them and drilled for pins :(

    Yeah. My kit is from 1994.

    leonasenshi (4 months ago) #21404362Those are really not pegs, they're called connection keys, they are made that way so that the pieces will connect without them swiveling, it's very common, pinning is still required in these cases, the majority of kits have them, but there are some kits without them, those are much older.

    Only PVC-like pegs work well and sturdy without pins. And those are HUGE, believe me.

    Bellare (4 months ago) #21238703You can, but I would recommend adding pins, because it adds more stability incase of a move or dusting the piece.
    If you don´t add pins, it can break apart even from just being flipped over.


    Darn. Kind of a shame the sculptor went to the trouble of adding them, then.

    Thanks for the input, guys!
