Eye Surgery

To prepare the Boglin for the MONSTER M4SK, we'll have to:

  • remove the original plastic eyes to make room for the M4SK
  • remove and replace the tail for easy USB access
Be cautious when using hobby knives and other sharp tools

Disconnect Upper Eyelids

  • First invert the Boglin inside out such that the back of the eyes are accessible.
  • Pick one side of the eyelid's top to remove first.
  • Use your fingers to pull at the latex until you can see where the latex is attached to the plastic eyes.
  • Take a hobby knife and carefully cut away at the latex all the way around the eyelid connection until the eyelid is free from the plastic.
  • Repeat with the opposite upper eyelid.
  • Try to remove as little latex material as possible to avoid eyelid holes. If you end up making unwanted holes in the lids, they can be fixed later.
Be careful when separating plastic eyes from eyelids. If you remove too much latex from eyelids, there will be visible holes in the eyelids. If necessary this can be fixed later.

Remove Eye-Cheek Connections

  • Next, find one cheek-to-eye connection to start removing.
  • Use the hobby knife to carefully separate the latex from the plastic all the way around until the connection is free.
  • Repeat with the other side.

Disconnect Lower Eyelids

  • Use the hobby knife to separate the latex from the plastic as before for the lower eye-lids.

Remove Eye-Nose Connection

  • Use the hobby knife to separate the latex from the plastic from the nose connection.
  • Eventually the set of plastic eyes will come free from the Boglin, yay we did it!

Fix the Eyelids (if Necessary)

  • First use some isopropyl alcohol to clean the surface where the eyelid holes are.
  • Next apply some super glue around the eyelid hole area.
  • Then careful close the eyelid hole by pressing the eyelid skin above and below the hole together.
  • Hold for at least 1 minute for glue to dry.
  • Repeat on other side.
