What bend? That one cylinder is compressed much more, yes, but there is no bending.

Remember there was pink foam and a strap around the hurt leg. It might be preventing the leg from flopping down as much as the others... irrespective of whether the leg is actually broken/bent or not.

The "bend" is in the side-view profile of the leg due to its shape, it's not actually bent.

Looks straight to me.

Here's a clearer picture, it's definitely straight.

NOT BENT. That's how the leg looks. You are being fooled by A) poor image quality and B) light conditions.

It's not bent but it's certainly not happy. (I mean, maybe it is, because it likes pink foam bandages, but that's not the way to bet) That one's going to get some extra special analysis...

SpaceX - In Port - BulgariaSat-1 - 4K - 06-29-2017

USLaunchReport
Published on Jun 29, 2017

SpaceX toughest and successful landing. Merlin engines appear close to the deck. In the video, you will see Falcon 9 Booster in the far right aft corner. For coming in so hot, still a perfectly good booster.

Someone mentioned a name from Culture: Attitude Adjuster

But, I still think it's a cybernetic member of the Order Octopoda.
