    I had a issue with Jetifire's knees being too weak and not capable of standing on his own, even with using his cane.
    [Since this is the case] I cut down his knees so his knees could be straighter; now he stands taller, and no longer needs to be propped up against a wall.

    What I did to the knee area allows two (2) more clicks from the gear/spring.
    Everything I did was trial and error.

    After doing all these cuts, it adds about an additional 45 degrees to the range of the knee.

    Be very careful with the spring and gear. It was difficult getting the spring back into place with the gear piece if . . . taken out or popped out.

    Here are a few pics I took from my webcam [of the finished result]:
