Someone else did. I fixed it. You have to removed the thigh cap careful, unscrew the parts, then it’s a simple rotate and reinsert. Pretty cool so far besides that. 

Good to hear it's an easy fix.

I took a razor blade and gently pried/worked the seem of the thigh cap just below the yellow knee. It pulls down for the top. Work it slowly and it will come off. There is another screw on the inside. Take it out and the two parts come apart. Then spin around the joint probably and reinstall.

All credit to Flapjack. If you are on MW too, thank you. 
 

Fixed it and ended up nicking myself in the process. Lol! The front panel is glued which I had to force it off. The housing of the thigh is secured by 2 screws. Open that up, rotated the leg and placed everything back together again.

Edit: Just to add. The thigh pieces are held together by yellow rectangular piece at the top. So 4 pieces in total including the front panel. You can carefully slide down the inner thigh piece so you don't have to pry the yellow rectangular piece off when dissasembling it.

These are Flapjack’s photos from TFW. Same problem as me. 
...

Wait, the circled one is the wrong one? Both of the hips on mine look like that... Great.

While I'm at it, anyone else have issues with the ankle ball joints being really loose? They're not so bad that they flop around under their own weight, but they definitely don't support any poses. In order for it to stand, at least one of the ankles needs to be at the extreme forward (toe up) end of its range of motion so it can't move anywhere.

Mine looks exactly the same so maybe my first video is going to be a repair tutorial. I'm hitting the road right now though and haven't had a chance to handle the toy yet... what's the impact of the turned around part?

My Legioss just arrived from Amazon.jp. Thankfully the hip joints are correct. Man you guys were not kidding about the pilot falling apart at the slightest glance! At first it seemed solid but as soon as I tried to move it into position to put in the cockpit it just started the “snowball” effect. One part falls off then as you try and put one limb or lower half back on something else falls off. Sheesh. The fighter itself seems pretty good. Going to wait for a good transformation video to follow before trying to transform.

I couldnt get the cover off to reveal the 2nd screw, whta i did was unscrew one screw and pry the thigh open a bit and try to get that stub under the 2 halves, once u get it in there it should be fine

Mine had the same issue, but it is not necessary to remove the glued thigh panel or pry the to halves open.

It is a bit hard to describe, but like @Guyffon suggested just take out the visible screw. Then rotate the nub downwards until it tucks inside the leg opening and won't go any further. Now make sure the thigh is folded outwards (fighter config.) and with some light force try to push/twist/rotate the nub further into the cavity. You can sort of feel and hear when you succeed. After that use the leg to further rotate the nub until it faces backwards and then put the screw back on. There will be no scrapes or damage and the original factory assembly of the thigh stays intact without having to be tampered with.

I hope my description makes sense and helps everyone with the issue.

I have to admit I am a little bit confused on the hip joint issue a couple people have posted.
Can someone explain what the problem might be again?

Watching this video (which is awesome, and made me feel MUCH better about the transformation)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3oEseTafph8

They started with the top(fighter to gerwalk to soldier) and ended with the bottom (soldier to fighter)
It doesn't seem to matter the orientation of the slots on the hip axle, so what other part is the possible problem?

Thanks!!

If the notch is on the front and you fold the legs in for the other 2 modes, it won't sit flush against the hip bar. I can imagine it affects the forward and backward movement of the leg because it will be at an angle.

So BOOTIFUL! Oooooo.

Man, you make some wonderful pieces. Thanks for sharing your talents with the community.

Thanks-so if the axle rotates, why do we have disassemble to fix (vs rotate some more)
Just trying to me prepared if it happens to me when mine arrives someday.

It is because there is a raised stubb on the side that is supposed to be hidden, without disassembly you cannot get that part to rotate where it needs to be. If you have that problem you will understand what I mean when you see it. Mine was assembled correctly but poped out when trying to transform it to diver mode.

 

By the way, does anyone know what that stub in front of the gun magazine is for? I searched for it in the manual but could not find it, I might have missed it though as I was looking through it quite late last night

Alright long thoughts post is here with pictures.

My take on Sentinel's Legioss: Overall, this a really good looking and almost a great legioss. Sentinel needs to fine-tune some things here and there. As it is it's a good to very good legioss that some has issues. It's not a disaster like ETs or toynamis and it is well above the CMs.

Pros:
-It's goddamn gorgeous. The sculpt is pretty much everything I ever wanted.
-Lots of locking mechanisms for fighter mode. Pretty solid once you get everything tabbed in.
-Plenty of tampo printing even more than the CMs
-Articulation is great but the tolerances need to be adjusted!

The okay:
-The nosecone does soft-lock into the back, but can get knocked when posing.
-Shoulders are too tight, but they get more usable once you move it back and forth a bit.
- There is a tab in the palm of the hand and it kind of works. He holds the gun for the most part, but the hole needed to be deeper in the gun.
-The pilot figure feels fragile, but mine has stayed in one piece (thank jebus)

Cons:
-Why oh why Sentinel did you not make the WHOLE landing gear assembly metal.
-Ankles aren't super loose on mine, but they should be tighter. I'll bust out the matte varnish on these ball joints.
-Pilot figure feels gummy.
-The wings should have been pinned! Hopefully they do this on future releases.

For anyone with the mis-matched hips, try to hold the legs and try to rotate it using the whole leg if that makes sense. My left hip was off-center then it rolled all the way back and while it was a pain in the ass to get it back I got it back.
