    I literally do not understand how this is supposed to fit. There is no amount of bending on the front leg or rear leg I can do to increase the length of the front leg by half a centimeter so it can touch the ground. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

    I think you have to bend the rear leg at its ankle.
    If you take a look at this picture the boot and lower leg form like a straight line:

    Even taking that so the foot is basically flat doesn't make it. The rear leg connects to the cape at the thigh and the ankle, so it won't bend vertically down.

    I had the same problem. I cut off the sprue underneath his foot to use as additional tactical debris to get it to work. It doesnt look half bad, a bit more in-stride...

    but it is kind of annoying to have to do that.

    @Sangarn , I agree with you, I bought 2 boxes of Spiral Corps, I have seen that the Reex have difficult holes in the torso, and one of them in the neck, as well as the Kiel Saan has a good hole in the back, between the torso and the skirt, at first I thought it was my thing, but seeing it in both boxes ...

    Today the Taagma will arrive, it will be necessary to pull putty, I suppose ...

    At least the miniatures are very cool, especially the Draal SMG, spectacular

    the worst part is seeing carlos in presentation videos showing us: "look they are so easy to assemble only 3 parts !" -_-
    on topic I've used an elevated base from MAS to fix the problem:

    This was the worst post-aristella model that I have had to assemble. I had a hell of a time aligning the top and the bottom halves and getting both feet flat on the ground at the same time. I assumed the parts got bent in transit, but after reading this thread, I wonder if it was just poorly made. I ended up with gaps in all connection points that I filled with green stuff and copious amounts of superglue, which seemed highly abnormal for a 2019 model. I wonder if I could have bent the pieces into compliance rather than fill the gaps. What happened with this sculpt?!

    Yeah, occasionally there's a fuck up, the Tuareg sniper was a nightmare too

    I also was disappointed in the pose issue. I found a simple solution. Cut off foot sprue and then cutoff the bottom corners that protrude from the box and sand the small imperfections left so the bottom of the box is flat. Assemble model normally. Glue direct to base. Looks as it should and took almost no extra time.

    I got freaked by it when I opened it, but I just bent the leg on the box at the ankle and it lined up fine, seems just a little bit off.
