    Could be the spring or some other part of the ratchet..you probably need to open it up and look inside

    Would like to ask a bit more specific, when you drop the silicone shock oil on thigh ratchet, did you drop it on the tight spring or on the ratchet plastics? Or both?

    I did not use the oil on the thighs because I think they are just fine on mine, but on the waist I simply dropped the oil between the plastic pieces of the waist and crotch piece.

    I saw you applied silicone shock oil on the shoulder combiner port for both arms as well. Did it work? How much silicone oil did you apply? Need to wait how long before you move combiner port on the shoulder/arm again after the oil application?

    On the shoulders I used automotive grade silicone shock oil which came in a spray can, I sprayed around the ratchet plastics (I did not disassemble them), it did work to free them up, I only let them sit for 5 minutes. My recommendation is to try the 300cSt oil first, give it a drop or two, wait 5 minutes, try to move them, if still frozen then add another drop or two, wait 5 more minutes and retry.

    I painted my 3d printed devastator head. It still needs work as the pain bled to areas that it shouldn’t have but either way tell me what you guys think.

    Well, paint isn't perfect but I don't care at this point. Just waiting for it to cure enough before installing.

    I didn't want to try to color match the green, and I thought it would be cool to bring in the black and silver from the arms and legs.

    And installed. I like the silver on the sides, but I think if I was to change anything, I'd just make the front completely black, or just the whole thing in silver. Oh well. Good enough for now.

    Looks great. Is it safe to assume you used an airbrush to paint them? I only ask because the paint doesn't look like poop.

    Yup. Definitely airbrushed. I could have done a better job at masking as there is some paint bleed. I'm out of practice and was never very good to start :p

    I recently received my C07G & it's amazing, however, the ankles have been put on wrong. Mixmaster only fits the right leg & Scrapper the left. It this as simple as swapping ankles? Has anyone come across this before? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I just want to combine him. 20210409_122824.jpg 20210408_204615.jpg

    That is weird..if the thighs are not turned the wrong way and they really are on the wrong legs which it appears..you may need to take them apart and put the connectors on the correct thighs

    You can remove the screws on at the hips. They have springs. You can then swap the whole legs instead of just a the knee caps. Make sure you use the correct size Phillip's screw driver so you do not strip the screws and take pictures as you take them apart so you can follow them to reattach.
