Shockwave needs your help!
I have a problem with Shockwave's legs (Shockwave uses some of Chris roach's designs). The problem with the legs is that in gun mode they fall down! I don't have any more socket joints (I do have 4 ball joints, but only hero factory socket joints, and they won't look right). If you have any ideas or suggestions, please tell me, I have to get the legs to stay!
About this creation

The legs are fine now...(in case you're wondering, I haven't forgotten about the extra barrel section)

But when you pick him up they fall down! Also, if you try to hold him, the rest of him falls down!

Some close ups of the legs

The legs are still in the fallen down position

The upper legs

The back of the upper legs

The upper legs in the right position Please give me some ideas or suggestions so I can finish Shockwave!

Quoting Declan Muller For this kind of stuff, you may want to use ratchet joints instead of hinges. Re-design the legs with ratchet joints and it should work...
Quoting Chris Roach with straight ratchets you will lose some poseability but you gain stability-you have to weigh out the functionality u want!
Thanks, I'll try it
