Does anybody know any good ways to restore figures limbs to their natural shape? I've tried the hot and cold water one, But never had much success.

Enclosed are example pictures of two figures that were warped straight out of the box. 

First Ten Years Ultron, Left leg warped.

80th Anniversary Iron Man, Right leg warped.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Had this same problem with my vol. 2 Star Lord, heated and straightened it 5 times but it kept warping back...

Thats exactly what happened to the Iron Man. I even put a rubber band around the legs for a day while it reset. After taking it off, A few hours later it would look like it did before.  :mellow:

I've used splints and clamps to try to hold arms and legs straight as they cooled for well over a week, used ice water, cold gas from a can of Dust Off that I shook up and sprayed as well as the cold liquid from spraying the same upside down, I've used a hair drier then put figures in the freezer and kept them there for days, and I've almost never had success trying to straighten anything from Hasbro.

The two weirdest instances in my collection are the SP//DR wave's Doc Ock tentacles, and one of the antenna on the Cull Obsidian wave's Ant-Man's helmet. just, won't straighten...
