Bought a couple over the last couple weeks as I saw them available. I didn't want to be without one if something bad happened. I first scored over the tops if the hips trying to trace the inner ball with my exacto. I made a notch as wide as my metal cylinder dremmel bit. I bored into the hips knocking the notch free to move. That released the ball from the socket. Then I cleaned up the joints with a trimming of the exacto and then repainted using "oily steel" in a mostly black mixture. I painted both upper thighs and the briefs. The color was a pretty dead on match.

I popped the legs back on it was good to go. It was a good attempt so I made 2 more while I still had paint mixed.

Now he looks perfect! I love this figure but I'm afraid of doing the same mod on mine.

I'm gonna echo that sentiment!

I've seen others add articulation to the ankles which would be a good thing. But opening those legs up really adds a huge range to what he's capable of now. The double knee lets you do whatever you want.

I dig it.
