So i recently picked up the ecliptic evader tie fighter, which included a Hobbie Klivian figure. Unfortunately the hip joints are really, really stuck, and refuse to move at all. Even after both the boiling water trick, and the Freezer trick.

So, boiling water and freezing aside, is there any other method to un stick the hip joints? Or is this a lost cause?

This is the third time this has happened to me, first with Saga Dutch Vander, Black Series Biggs, and now Hobbie. Seeing as they're all pilot figures, it'd be a real shame if the hip joints are permanently stuck since they won't be able to sit in any cockpits
