    Was tricky, but managed it after an hour last night. He really needs some heel supports

    That's strange. It wasn't difficult in my case. Legs (hips and knees) were straight, as right from the box, so were the ankles. The main tip was to turn legs with toes out a little bit, as on my picture. It helps to lean the figure slightly forward.

    It works great for mine. No sign of wear or fatigue so far. Its strong, simple to use and affordable. I would recommend it

    Quick question. Just got my Psychro Knight out for display and found that one of his wings had the inner large plate simply unable to hold position. I have a feeling I know why and should be able to implement a fix, but is this a common occurrence worth my sharing of a solution when I'm done? Or is there already an existing fix?

    I had the same issue with Doragon out of the box. I opened the wing arm and tightened the hinge with floor polish. I only needed a screwdriver to take the wing apart.

    It's been a while but I think I did the same on one or two "not-feathers". Only a tiny amount was needed, don't do a thick layer.

    Hmm... could be mould degradation, then - tried some Kiki and it made no appreciable difference. Would have had to really pack that stuff in there over multiple days. Switching around which "feather" was where (even changing sides) didn't help either. Could be that it was either collapsing in on itself slightly or the drafting angle has become too much.

    Solution I came up with in the end was a 3D printed "slug". Basically a cylinder to push slightly against the post the "feathers" mount on. 16mm tall, 13.8mm diameter with a 14.2mm bulge in the middle, and a straight 8mm hole up the centre for the screw post. I wouldn't want to go any larger than a 14.2mm bulge in case it made it too tight or started stressing things, but 14.0mm fit into the space without any restriction so that's too small.
