    So I got a Universe 1.0 Skywarp, the Beast Machines Jetstorm repaint, and his head fins are bent. I feel like I read somewhere that if you boil some water and stick soft plastics like these in for a few seconds it can make the plastic go back to it's original molded shape. Is this true? If not is there a different solution?

    you can bend them manualy and hold them in the extreme opposite of the way it is bent now, you wait awile see where it is at and if it needs more time keep doing it.
    dont know about putting it in hot water and it bending back to the way it was, i imagine it would just make it more pliable for awile.

    use a blow dryer on med to high heat for min, but keep it slightly further back so it doesn't melt. the plastic will soften, and will go back to it's original shape.
