Leg switch help

Posted in Custom Workstation

Okay, so I have a X-Men movie Rogue in battle suit figure and I'm really not happy with how short she is next to other figures so I was wondering if it's possible to switch her legs from the knee down with the legs (knee down) of a Jean or Storm figure. That way she'd be wearing high heals and her height would be brought up a bit. The problem is I don't know if it's possible to switch a figure's legs from the knee down. Has anyone done this or have any hints om how to go about it? I don't even know if it's possible to switch those parts. Help please.

Well you can always kitbash them. I wouldn't do that unless you got some sculpt/paint/glue to clean up the mess. Just search for 'kitbash tutorial' on youtube and watch TheRealWhodagoose videos on how he does it. I don't like the way his figs end up most of the time but with a little effort you can place the bottom leg you want onto the knee joint that you need so it all looks flush. A little more time consuming but I like to think of it as fun.

If it doesn't work like he G.S. said then drill the pegs out and repplace them with toothpics. Thats what I do cause I'm too lazy to do the boil and pop.

I'm using the Toy Biz figures from the movies. I don't know if it will work the same.

What figures are you using? Are they marvel Legends? If the knees have a joint in them it's super easy, just detach the legs at the joint and reattach the new leg into the joint. Boil the figure for about 10-15 seconds and the leg piece will come right off the joint and make it way easier.
