I've got a nice little collection of Battle Beasts from my childhood but unfortunately a few of them are suffering from some ailments. Hoping you Battle Beast pros can give me advice on how to salvage these awesome little bastards.
For starters, there's these figures with broken arms. As you can see the peg has broken off in the arm-hole of these guys, but I still have what's left of the arms. As of now, I'm planning to just superglue the arms in place (at least then, they'll be aesthetically pleasing); unless you guys have a better suggestion.

The Moose however is still missing his right arm completely, but I just so happen to have a spare giraffe arm that I'd love to be able to squeeze in. I've done it once before with another figure (also pictured) and it turned out pretty rad, but that was so long ago, I have no idea how.
The Moose's arm hole is a lot smaller than the giraffe arm peg (and I'm sure most of you know how hard it is to squeeze these in by hand). I know I've read about boiling figures to soften the rubber, but I really don't know much about it. Anybody mind walking me through that?
I also have these armless dudes, and one-armed ram/yak?/whatever. No arms, unfortunately. Anyone have some spares, or other suggestions?
Thanks! Any help would be greatly appreciated!
