    I did a few searches to see if anyone had posted about this already, but came up with nada. I can't seem to get Magnus' legs out of the City Commander leg gear and I was wondering if anyone had this same problem or if they had any suggestions for not breaking this awesome piece of work?

    Getting the legs in was really easy, but now that they're in, the nook where the wheels lock into seems to keep the leg from getting the leverage to pull out, same with that solid triangular piece on the inside of the foot.

    Sorry if there's a post already about this.

    ---Update---

    ExVeeBrawn's advice worked. Pulling the leg while giving it a logical twist with a little force gets it out. And it really does make a lot of crackity pops getting out! o_O

    Push down the leg, pull out on the armor, and twist. While the design of the leg armor could have most certainly been better, they did at least make sure the material was both thick and pretty strong. It might make some horrible snapping noises as pieces slide past each other, but so far nothing is actually taking damage. I actually had an easier time taking the whole thing apart than getting the legs IN to start with.

    It worked great. a firm hold of the leg with a twist and a pull on the armor gets it sufficiently loose. some of the plastic gives a little, but I think it's meant too.

    It worked! Thanks! I kept trying to pop the leg out rather than pull the armor off.

    I think wiggling is inevitable on the leg bits. Something always seems to get caught or stuck on the way out.
