Guys, the ankle of my DX Bats broke. He's got a wobbly ankle now. It's the piece inside of the boot that is snapped off (one side of it). Is this piece easily replacable? Is it a normal feet?

Thanks in advance for any help.



Does the inside of the boot look similar to... you could easily fix it if you had some spare truetypes. It's been a while since I stripped my DX down but I'm pretty sure it uses the same pegs and rings.

The boots are a solid chunk of rubber... I suppose the part the broke was the upper socket of the double ball joint on the lower leg..

because of the longer leg extension socket.. it's rarer on TT bodies. I suppose you can use ordinary socket or even the socket on the feet (shown by vodoun) and mod it to the length of the broken socket.

A reference pic I got from google image search:

Thanks for the info. Something tells me it is not a normal feet I can just slot in. I'm reluctant to try and take the feet apart just to find out and can't replace it. Was wondering if anyone has taken theirs apart.

I have a Demon Bats and Scarecrow unopened. I may just open it and take the Demon Bat's boots (if they're even the same as teh DX Bats')...

Could you maybe consider a bit of lubricant? Maybe dab of vaseline?

Re: Problem with your Hot Toys figure? Ask Dr.Beast X !


The right arm on one of my ThreeA figures broke at the joint of the upper arm and the shoulder. I assume, it can be fixed, but, how? Do I need to replace the arm and the shoulder? ThreeA would send me a replacement arm, but, do I have to ask them to send me the shoulder piece also?

I think that the ThreeA bodies are very similar to HT bodies, that's why I'm asking here. Dr. Beast, please help!

Three A would probably send you an entire new body, wouldn't they?

Well, what's weird is that asked me to send them the arm for repair. I don't really see how they could repair a damage like that.
