I know the fellas at Mattel have to cut some corners to offer as many characters as they can, and I applaud them for that. I suppose cutting Vigilante’s arsenal of six-guns in half was a result of that. Unfortunately, it seems no one told the Mattel folks what a holster tie down was, or where it would be located on one’s leg in relation to the holster.
First thing I did was steal a holster from a second Vig. It pops out pretty easily. There’s a small nub that fits into a hole that I drilled on his belt. Then I sanded down both sculpted tie downs on his legs, and glued on new ones cut from vinyl. A little paint and he’s no longer an embarrassment to the cowboy community.
