    Don't move the feet if they've siezed up. I transformed my raptor girl fo a year with no issue. Then one day, the foot was siezed up. I moved it gently and the peg came off the leg. I've glued it back in place, but i can't move that foot or it'll drop off so now she has raptor feet in both modes. I also don't put that foot on the ground. She is perminantly on the stand by her other foot. Shane, as i do really like the figure.

    Thanks for the advice, glad i didnt wrench on it with my hamfists, I really like the figure as well, I'm leaving mine in the box until I have a more permanent place to display her.

    I'd like to ask, once the screws are removed. Is it easy to pry open her legs to do the fix? how about splitting open her feet (there's two screws on each) to add lubricant on her ball joints as well?

    splitting open the feet is easy.
    this won't really help you get to the ball joint though, as the socket is a little solid block squeezed between the halves of the foot.
    there's a tiny slit you may be able to drip something into, but I doubt you could get it around the entire ball.

    I haven't tried opening the legs because it wouldn't have done me any good, and doing so now will weaken the replacement joints.

    I managed to lubricate the the ankles via silicon oil and reinforced the pegs with epoxy.

    I bought some lube for the feet and I think it helps.

    Gotta say I love the sexy deco on these. Too bad about the lack of articulation and QC issues. Maybe at $30 a piece.

    I think a modern SS Voyager is a bit low, these are still made with superb build quality beyond the aforementioned ankles, and have great articulation save for a single bicep joint.

    I paid around $100 with shipping and customs for each of the girls, and I haven't regretted the purchase. I also thought they were pricy and would drop to a reasonable $50ish, but that never happened. And even after they were reissued the price held up.

    Very nice. I just opened her up and inspected her. Now where to put the faction logo.

    Be careful all the same. Ankles on mine were nice and smooth for a year, with a number of posing and transforming. Then one day it suddenly seized up for no reason.
