So far, I've pulled three Royal Guards from boosters, and all of them have droopy weapons...I've also got an Obi-Wan with a limp lightsaber...do any of you experienced miniature posters have a cure for this limpweaponitus?

I am interested as well, because I have an orc or two that are doing the limbo.

Hold the miniature next to a heat source (desk lamp, blowdryer) for a few seconds until the plastic becomes pliable. Move the figure into the position you want it to take (or farther), and then immerse it in cold water for about thirty seconds.

Excellent! Truly use CAUTION! when using the blowdryer... as the
plastic will literally melt. Be warned. Yes, this theory works very
well with other minis that are out there (eg, Hero Clix, MechWarrior,
MKnight, and others.

Btw, I just pulled Han Solo ! Most excellent!!!
