I always replace the spears, lances, flagstaffs, etc. with thin metal wire. Like I say, "more work now, more play later".

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo Flashman14 Supporting Member of TMP wonders:

If they are lead/pewter, do you replace them with brass or commercial "spears/lances"? It depends on the manufacturer in some sense. Perry lances should they hold up? What about Eureka? Both seem firm, but, of course, any real push will bend them. All the figures in question (Cossacks in this case) have steel washers or bases so they won't land lance first if they are dropped. Some brands like old Minifigs definitely should have them replaced. Thoughts?
