Thread: Loose legs and waist on Mattel Retro Superhero.

  1. #1

    Loose legs and waist on Mattel Retro Superhero.

    Any tips for how to tighten the legs of these figures, where they join the pelvis?
    The waist was also very loose. Again any tips, would be very much appreciated. Thanks

    restring the elastic is what has been discussed here.
    I think you could just tighten the legs up with a shorter elastic piece....
    I've got several I'm looking to tighten up myself...

    Well... Here's a tutorial I made back in the days... Not a video but full of step by step pictures. A bit complex, granted. But your figure will stand a pose guaranteed.

    I have the Darkseid one (the first ReMego I ever bought) but I've kept him carded (for now apparent reason, some stuff I open to display, some stuff I display on card), and never realized until I joined this forum that there were quality issues with the bodies on these. Makes me kind of glad I kept it carded.
