Yes looking I agree, it's hard to tell, but his left calf is kinda all twisted.

How strange, I wonder how or what has caused this? I mean your others are in such amazing condition. I have read that temperature extremes can cause cracking or splitting in the plastic but this is the first time I have read about a twisted effect. I hope someone can shed some light to help you out.

Well it's like he has two right calfs, but looking at it I doubt it would look right on either side of his body.

It's probably the wrong leg entirely. What's its number?

They're both by the look to me right shins. All the joints are individually numbered right side being R1 2 3 4 so on & left side L1 etc. They'll have a circular number on the reverse of the calf muscle. Hope this helps.

There are indeed two circular imprints on the calf muscles but sadly they are blank circles there is no lettering.

I realised this late last night & thought hang on. It's only the arm joints shoulder through to the wrist peg that are numbered. The round circles are from the moulds when being made. I know it's not conclusive, but they do look a matching pair. try sourcing lower limbs, they'll not be too costly & then he'll be good as new. Just be sure to avoid any with stress cracks as you'll not be gaining in any way other than it'll look right.

Mine too ,I like the colourful adventure sets . Just a tip for the Anorak and jumper , I have found it easier to put the jumper inside the anorak first , and dress them both onto the figure that way .
