So, I've had my Soar standing in robot mode in the same pose for months (nearly a year or more, actually). I rarely touch my figures or transform them. The ankle breakage happened to me as well. I picked it up off of the shelf, sat it down on its back, then tried to place it back on the shelf in the same pose. I noticed the ankle was loose, and I tried to tighten it. I noticed that the screw felt stripped, so I decided to completely disassemble it. Both shafts were broken, the one that was loose was broken at the base, and the other holding it to the leg was broken in the middle.
