Backwards foot on ML figure

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

I'm very new to collecting and I just got a ML Spider Girl and on of her feet is on backwards. The foot and the round part that inserts into the leg is put in backwards. I can see that all I need to do is remove it and turn it around but I don't know how to remove it. I've tried but I can't get it to budge. Can anyone please help?

I don't have any current figures to give tips on joints, so I'm just guessing here-

Does the foot pop onto the ankle ring at an angle? That might not let the OP simply rotate the pieces into the correct orientation (although I can't see why not either lol)

Yeah it's at a bit of an angle, but not enough to prevent it from rotating.

On the Marvel Legends Spider Girl the calves can rotate all the way around, the feet can rotate all the way around. I fail to see why you would need to heat n pop anything to fix a backwards foot.

If the rotation is at the upper calf rather than the ankle then turning the whole lower leg would look bad. And on some figs nothing below the hip rotates. I'm not sure about that spider girl fig but there should either be a pin to pop out or two bumps that the bottom of the leg needs to be pulled around. Either way the best things I've found for these jobs are: getting the plastic really hot and flexible (water or air), and brutally murdering figures I don't care about but that have similar joints to my main project. Then you can see from the inside what you're up against. Good luck.

Unless I'm missing something, just rotate it. I just can't imagine how a foot capable of rotating could be on backwards.
