    her lower legs are on backwards. while fiddling around with her today i noticed how the screw holes and hollow leg pieces were on the outer side each the leg. well every pic ive seen online shows this to be the right way.

    HOWEVER

    if you look at the writing inside the leg pieces they are labled L and R signifying left and right. well L is on the right leg and vice versa. so i decided to switch the lower legs. wasnt easy I had to pop out the metal pin on the knee joints and swap the legs. a real pain in the ass. now the screw holes and hollow leg pieces are on the inside of the leg making it look ALOT better. and best yest the L is on the left leg and vice versa

    My BA's legs are done like the OP's, too... That'd lead me to believe it's kinda widespread. I don't really have the equipment to fix them, so I guess I have to live with it.

    this isn't QC, for some reason they saw fit to switch the legs. Besides, I've seen a lot of pre-release BA's with this leg swap.

    Where exactly is this writing stating left-right?

    There's no reason to waste your time swapping them when it doesn't improve the figure at all. The gaps and screws are still there, just on the inside now. Not any more or less apparant.

    His BA's not screwed up, it's just how they're made. They did it with the CC BB from the movie line where they swapped his little heel things (I think) despite them both being identicle except for the L&R markings.
