Stand up Straight Soldier

Get the bends out.

Microwaved mug of water for 3 minutes. Just submerged part of the general for 10 count held in safety grippers (Better to go less than more. Too long and figure could start to get too soft and bend in weird ways). Pulled out. Shook off water. Straightened staff with hand (hot still!). Blow on while holding in position. Run under cold water. Plastic got very flexible. This is a great trick for adding variety and randomness to units.
