    The very same issue, today. Loose ankle, the screw spins and I open it. I think you have a broken and missing cilinder there (red arrow).

    I had only half of the opposite cilinder broken, so I used a larger screw, then somehow the other cilinder, the one you are missing, broke whole, so now there is no way to put the foot again. I'll try to superglue everything but I know it's not going to hold.

    I've just emailed dalianjj and quickly replied this: "The chinese post office can not send airmail now due to the virus problem. I have no idea when it will be available again. sorry." So I want to assume they have the spare part and sooner or later they will be able to send it.

    Let's hope so. Unless some enterprising dude can make a replica of that particular part. Mine's post isn't missing btw, just sheared off at that end (you can see it on the underside of the other black part in that photo, the screw is holding it there - hence why the screw was just spinning when I was trying to tighten it).

    It is what it is.
    Its my last soar available and the blue one at that and its MINT IN BOX NEVER DISPLAYED OR TRANSFORMED.
    Its all about supply and demand .

    Yup...got me a case of new gi joes and a spawn figure for soar..i went below asking price cos the gentleman was POLITE and didnt whine or moan or question the cost.

    No not really...
    I just get tired of constantly trying to be lowballed
    On here.
    Its insulting and rude.
    The prices are firm..
    Theres always ebay or just dont buy what im offering if you cant afford it.
    On the contrary..im EXTREMELY POLITE and have no issies whatsoever.
    99.9 % of the time i get along with EVERYONE and go out of my way to please polite people..
    I give what i get is the way i was raised.
    I dont walk into a resturant and haggle over the price of food on the menu.
    Or best buy and lowball the salesman or manager in an attempt to acquire a new laptop below retail.
    I may sound brazen or rude though that is not my intent.
    Some things in life cost what they cost.
    Cant afford it now...save up and buy it later.
    Thats what i occasionally am forced to do.
    I never asked for a break or a deal when i was the one who wanted said item whatever it may have been or will be.
    And i never approached anyone wanting something with empty pockets.

    I actually re-created this piece in 3D - and print them out. I've been working on some other commonly broken pieces as well.
    In the US, I'll send you 4 of the pieces (Just in case) for $7.50.

    They work really well. They're not QUITE as stiff as the original, but your Soar will be standing again.

    Just so you guys know - I'm also working on pelvis joints for Soar right now - I'm getting REALLY close. Few more little updates, and I'll have it. I've got a few people that need these already.

    I may be interested in the Soar ankle pieces you make if you still take orders for them. Mine hasn't broken yet but I like to stock up on parts while they're available. You should totally do terminus giganticus hip ratchets! Lol.

    id like to buy some but I'm in Canada. My swoop can barely stand and when he is a small gust or hit will make him topple over.
