    So those who have or will buy scalpel, to me at least, the legs bug the crap out of me! They should have put another middle joint in the legs to make him stand better.

    Now granted he does stand but like in the movie he walks on his points, not the underside.

    So all you need to do for this quick fix is turn him upside down, remove the screws, pull the legs off and take them out, flip them around, out them back in and tada!!! Now you have a scalpel on his tippy toes!

    Now you can see in the pic how I have him transformed. The 2 black panels on the side have to come in some to prevent the legs from going back up, but with some clear nail polish/superglue it could tighten them up and then move the panels all the way up in the middle. I actually like them this way.

    Down side, cant transform back, but me I dont care.

    Enjoy!!!

    The legs work fine if the figure isn't mistransformed.
