    I received mine today. They don't fit the King Poseidon hands. They were clearly designed for POTP hands like Dreadwind and Darkwing or the females. It may be possible to modify them to fit but I contacted TrentTroop and am awaiting a response.

    One option would be to trim the post on the bottom of the claw and insert it in the top of the hand plug. However, I paid enough for these that I don't think I should have to modify them to make them work.

    Quick update:

    TrentTroop is going to fix the design. I'm going to send him a King Poseidon hand (I have an extra) so he can get accurate measurements. Apparently the current design is based on measurements submitted as a commission by a third party.

    Thanks for doing this. Looking forward to seeing the final result.
    I agree that no modifications should be needed at that price (I recognise that small mods are often needed for Shapeways items, but nothing like the issue you described).
    Side-note: good on TrentTroop for fixing the issue.

    Finally realized my Seawing has two right fists. I don't suppose anyone has one with two left fists do they?

    They’re a pretty nice group, I’m glad I did a 180 and got them. I’m really not a huge fan of the POTP era toys - they seem so flimsy next to WFC - but these stand up quite well.

    I’ll try to put them together later.

    Failing that, it may be more affordable to just replace his hands for those from Swoop.

    Well, turns out Skalor will not physically ship out until Monday.
    At least, that's what the FedEx tracking page says.

    That's the optimal case, but given the limited availability of these, it may not be possible.

    Wouldn't surprise me it's still early enough for spare parts.

    Anyone else getting scared to check this thread just because of another thing to check on your copy?
