Ok guys, here we go! I’ll be demonstrating with the coveted ST , but this can be applied to any figure.
Start by removing the stock feet –
Using a blade, carefully cut the joint from the foot –
Now use your dremel to define the new slot, and drill the corresponding holes in the foot, for the ankle pegs. –
Which should leave you with something like this –
Now, locate a pair of articulated hands for the new ankles. I’m using 2 Ren Duke left hands because they’re a darker color and most importantly, the POA run in the same direction. Meaning, there’s symmetry to the joint shapes. Cut the hand from the joint –
Sand around the edge of your new cuts. This will aid it fitting to the lower leg –
Ok, once you’ve test fitted everything and you’re happy with it, glue them in place –
Here’s a comparison with the stock lowers –
Painting the new ankles is optional depending on what fig and what hands you use.
Other than that, he’s ready for action!
Thanks to Obi-Shinobi for sharing these tips for giving our figures more posing options!
