I have noticed that some people have mentioned bending figures that wont stand by using hot/cold water. I have several figures who need this treatment. Is there a guide published anywhere that would explain this bending technique to me? Any help would be appreciated.

Just heat water in one microwave safe bowl, have a bowl of ice water on hand. Use one to soften, than hold the figure in the pose you want in the cold till it sticks. You may have to hold it beyond the pose you want just because the plastic does want to go back to it's original state.

This works best for very minor changes, it doesn't work for dramatic changes unless you insert metal pins/rods into the bent part.
