    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:

    Tuvar, Baddrah, Crita, Granita, Gray, Colonel Blast and the Snake Goddess

    Yes, mine has VERY loose ankles.
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.

    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....
    Recent....Flutterina, NA Skeletor
    Coming....Rio Blast (sold already)
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    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.

    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.
