    Seeing this thread pop up again reminds me... I dug this guy out after a recent move and his left ankle is very loose. I'd read that some folks have had this before but didn't recall seeing the cause/fix. Anyway there are a couple of screws in the ankle joint and the upper, most visible one was the problem so the obvious thing was to try tightening it, but the screw just spins. I really wanted to see if I could solve the issue myself somehow, maybe by putting in a different screw, so decided to take the foot apart and look inside. Removing the foot off the ankle pivot reveals that, although it was all still in place, the post that the screw goes into has sheared off at the base and therefore even with everything tightened the ankle piece just revolves freely taking the post with it.

    Has this been noted before and has anyone successfully requested a replacement part?

    It's worth asking FT, if they have parts they will provide them. It just really depends if they are available at the factory.

    I've seen a few soars with this problem. I repaired one with Epoxy and had good results.

    The other day I noticed mine was drunkenly leaning on Snarl in the display, when I went to right him I found out his ankle broke just like yours, except on mine both those poists sheared off. =(

    Just trying to be clear, does the red/toy version have issues as well, or were they sorted out for that release?

    Both the red and blue versions were released at the same time, so any problems are shared.
    I have the red version, and the wing on mine was extremely tight and snapped off whilst I was posing him one day.
    However a quick email to FT and a new wing was with me super quick, just had to pay the postage.
