    I agree with Dark Angel on the new board he suggested.

    We need a "Customizing and Repair Tips and Tricks" board under fan creations. It is amazing how many people don't know or understand they really have a lot of options for simple repairs and improvements with very basic tools and little effort.

    Thanks for the tip I will give it a try.

It makes it a bit rubbery, and easier to put on.

    Many customers received their first King-Grayskull with broken ankles from day one! I ordered two back in the day, and one was already broken in its box!
    It was disheartening to see your first MOTUC figure broken! It was actually a writing on the wall so to speak that the line will be cursed with bad QC from the get go... Sadly until this day, we're still having QC issues!

    My first MOTUC figure horror story

    Well it was bound to happen. My King Grayskull (the 2008 one) took a dive of the display shelf and his foot broke off at the ankle I super glued it and it seems fine. Luckily I have another 2008 King Grayskull and some spare boots. If I can find out how to remove a boot from a figure then I can replace one on king grayskull. Needless to say that some of my other figures have very loose ankles such as wundar,adora,faker and man-at-arms. It only goes to show that mattel has a very lousy quality control.
