I love ROTF Scout Knockout to death, but his ankle joint is killing me.

    It's so loose, he's such a pain to stand up straight. I love how he looks great in so many poses, though. Anyone else in love with this guy, but the ankles are too loose?

    Mine are fine, and he's a great figure.

    The ankles seem fine on mine; I have to agree as well, he's a brilliant little figure. I've dug all the ROTF Scouts.

    Damn. Must've gotten a lemon. I've also found that Reverb, for some reason, doesn't look half as good in the same exact pose as Knockout. His colors just don't suit the robot mode. My Reverb has the perfect left foot heel spur though. It clicks really solidly into place. I wish I could say the same for Knockout.

    Both still suffer from the waist joint that refuses to peg together. That must've been a design error.

    Mine's ankles are okay, but his arm is loose on mine. Still an epic figure! Everyone I've shown him to thinks he's awesome.

    Ye Olde Superglue method works decently for firming up the ankle joints. just get a little liquid superglue into the joint(capillary action will do most of that) and keep moving the ankle for a while. might have to use a little more if he's not stabilized, but... well, it worked on my instance of the figure. *shrug*
