I wouldn't recommend pulling apart the thigh swivel. I did the same thing when I got my leo to try to fix the hardness, and due to hardness of the plastic, I ended up breaking off the thigh peg trying to get it back into the socket. And, the amount of trying to force that leg back in was enough to doom the hip joints as well as they got ground around.

The knees and ankles come off pretty easily, and you can put some super glue in the socket to give it more resistance, but the thighs are a tough one. Using a really runny super-glue with a pipette attachment might be your best bet if you can get the pipette in between the parts?

My issue is the looseness of the legs where they meet the torso. Contemplating popping out the crotch piece, cutting it open to get some superglue resistance in there, then gluing it all back up.

Here's a picture of the crotch piece and the broken peg if it helps at all:
That's a big help, thank-you! I'm sorry to hear about the breakage, that really sucks. Did you manage to find a remedy for that?

I reckon I could live with the loose thigh swivel if I can at least get the knee swivels to work. Thanks again!

Whenever you’re putting a figure back together, make sure the peg is cool and solid, and the other side is heated and pliable. For anything you’re really worried about, a little Vaseline or lubricant on the peg helps as well.

Looks cool and I would actually buy it, if it wasn't only Entertainment Earth Exclusive... Too many pre-orders on BBTS and I don't want to spend money for another international shipping for one figure.

$70 shipped for that Mutagen Man is insane.

I love it! But not enough to buy it from EE by its lonesome. If it can hit in stock status and I can bundle it with something to get free shipping, then it would be more enticing.

That international shipping cost is godawful. But this was my #1 want for a GITD exclusive from this line, so I'm in.

I love all glow-in-the-dark variants and had to jump on the latest version of Toxie (after missing out of the regular version) ... BUT! I've got the regular version of Ultimate Mutagen Man and was pretty disappointed by how non-ultimate he actually is. I don't trust that he's waterproof, especially since his garbage pieces don't really fit into his tank, and the articulation is lacking, even given the "challenging" sculpt.

$15 to ship him? Are they freaking nuts? Plus another $5 in tax. He will cost me $75.

Yup. The last item I ordered from them period, let alone their "exclusive," was the Dino-Riders set, where shipping was over half the cost of the set, and took almost 3 weeks with a tracking number that wouldn't update (they just responded to my e-mails, too - three months later). And then I saw that BBTS got the same set for the same price, like, a month later... :|

You got pulled in by that too?

I'm pretty much done with EE, and the outrageous shipping is only part of it. :rolleyes:

Got me for those dino-riders as well. If I had known bbts was getting them I would have waited. Any word if BBTS will get mutagen man?
