    Are your Octavia ankles loose?

    After the Black Plastic Morbo and the brittle plastic of Granamyr the quality of the figures is improved as Mattel promised.
    I heard that someone got problems with Netossa, Ram-Man, Jitsu, Fang-Man, Snake-Face, Karatti and the Fightin' Foe Men but none of them are recurrent problems.
    The Octavia loose ankles problem seems to be recurrent, is it true? Let us know!

    P.S.
    If you got other problems with Octavia there is the general poll for the june figures here:

    Nope, my Octavia had ankles solid enough to stand on her own.

    Yeah, I had to fix mine because she kept falling backwards if she wasn't leaning forward too much to look right....one was tighter but still loose enough to not be able to counter the one that just flopped around.

    Mattel needs to fix these damn Female ankles like they did the Male ones and stop leaving the girls out in the cold....like by cutting the boot cut....

    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    I voted yes, but really, only 1 of them is - the other is very tight.

    The right-ankle ankle is really loose. Left seems to be okay.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    Right is loose, left is ok. Had to tighten the right with glue as she kept falling over.

    Not really. I've had looser, and I've had tighter. But she's above middle.

    They both were, but nothing super glue & a 3 hr. stay in the freezer didn't fix.

    Somewhat loose but she has fallen on her face a few times knocking Catra and Shadow Weaver off the shelf.

    So loose, that I have to use her tentacles as legs. I have to have them always down so she can stand up. Not even the floor wax trick worked.

    Both of my Octavia's ankles are not crazy loose but not fully tight either.
