    I'm wondering of anyone on here has tried to improve on titans return sixshot? Such as better ankle tilt, tighten knees or added ratchets to them for stability. Really those are my main two issues that i would love to fix but feel free to share any improvements at all on the figure.

    Thanks, im going to try the floor polish trick, and i can see what you mean about a while new piece. I havent lookdd into the dr wu kit however. I might try shaving some material from the existing ankle so it moves more freely...unless i can rig something up at work lol

    Pledge floor polish with future finish. Apply a little to loose joints to tighten them up

    I've done a good but to my Sixshot:
    Shaved down the ridges on the ankle nubs to make the tilts actually work.
    Made the shoulder hinges more durable with some Bob Smith Instacure Gap Filler. So much better than Future. It's trickier, but the results are excellent. My Sixshot can now be held at an angle by the arm and it doesn't flop at all.
    Got G1 guns made by Hot.Shot on Shapeways.
    Added wingtips from a junker G1. Had printed ones made for my LG50 version.
    Killed the HM gimmick by filling in the back of the wolf head.
    Shaved off the back of the head a bit to allow for added elevation.

    Textured styrene and regular styrene for detailing. This also shows the new wingtips.

    Here are the guns and new wingtips for my LG50.

    He will also get the wolf head filler, as well as a few other fixes to make it better.

    Nope.
    Putting the gap filler in the shoulder joints was easy with a very tiny nozzle on the bottle, and the ankle tilt nubs were shaved with an Exacto.
