If the material can be easily bent at room temperature (like rubber), applying any source of heat then, after bending it to the correct shape, "shocking" it with really cold water will do the trick. However, be careful with the temperature. Hot water, but not boiling hot, will do just fine. I've read somewhere that applying too much heat will discolor the part.

Hi everyone, does anybody know how I can tighten Fall of Cybertron Sidewipe's ratchet joints for his limbs? All his joints have loosened and it's difficult for him to stand with his path blaster. His right elbow is already very loose (obviously from the weight of the path blaster), and his right knee joint is also very loose, making it a little difficult to pose him. Basically, how do I tighten a ratchet joint?

Hey, anybody have a fix for CW Superion's antennae? They want to sit slightly akimbo backwards. I see that Ryan was able to get them to point straight up for his galleries. I'm betting I missed a comment somewhere in those threads, but they are now huge monsters.

Thanks in advance!
I once read that self deprecating humor is a sign of intelligence.
So, I started making fun of myself like crazy...

What worked for me was to loosen the screw at the back of his head, I loosened mine about half way, and the antenna are now straight.
