Tutorial - How To Fix: S.H.Figuarts Kabuto

We all know that the S.H.Figuarts Kabuto series most of the first release figures have a common problem with the leg (please see the picture above) e.g. like Kabuto (after re-issue a couple of time the problem has been fixed), Kick Hopper, Punch Hopper, Caucasus, Hercus and Ketaros. On my holiday trip, I have brought along caucasus and I thought it's a good opportunity to fix itthis figure.  I will show what did I do to make it looks better.

Look at this picture, it shows you that the S.H.Figuarte Caucasus totally bend in-wards. Let's work on it!     \ (^ ^) / 

Step 1: This are the tools that you need to prepare to do the simple modification.
Yes, this is no joke. You really need a left over Gundam Model Kit sprue.

Step 2: Cut the part that is shown in the picture roughly in the shape of triangle. For the size, you need to do a trial and error when you are going to use it.

Step 3: Take off the entire leg of the figure gently! Be extra careful when you plug it out. This line have a fragile joint in the groin area.

Step 4: Check on the spot that is pointed with arrow in the picture whether there is any more space to slot in the sprue that has been cut out.

Last Step: After you have put it in, you can do some adjustment if it too big or to long and if it's OK, you can put the leg back to the main body (^ ^)v

We are done (^ ^)v 

Feel free to comment if you have any question, I will try my best to answer :) Enjoy~
