    Yup. I understand where the response is coming from, Roger. However, what you probably are thinking of a broad brush is daily life for the PoC in the country. Right. Now.

    Also, a ‘fuck you’ to the cop that asked me why I was being so difficult during a ‘random check’ this past lollapalooza weekend.

    Not one of the heavily intoxicated Naperville white kids that descend into the loop around me were even being considered as this guy was doing his job.

    I guess my New Museum tote bag is a lot more conspicuous than a camelbak that’s being taken one too many sips out of.

    My response: ‘why would you think I’d make your job easy?’

    I think customs opened the box, then yanked the head. :x

    'Cause everyone knows, that's where the good coke is.

    Man, I am so sorry about this Emanuel. This is ultimately shitty. :(

    Checking for drugs or contraband? :shock:

    Is there any recourse?

    That went from $500 to worthless in 0.2 seconds!

    I emailed Atom about it, he mentioned how well he packed it and asked about the box. Haven’t heard back after that. I wouldn’t mind just glueing it since none of the paint is damaged. But I’d at least want him to keep picking me for lottos if he isn’t going to do anything about it.

    I really like (and by like, I mean HATE) how they totally and obviously BREAK the toy then just put it back in the box and ship it like no big deal. How is this OK?

    I'm sorry man. It sucks having any toy break, but seeing a paint like that handled that way really upsets me. I hope Atom sorts you out, either with a new one or some extra luck in the future.

    Its a major downer but realistically Atom doesn't have any responsibility for that gratuitous act of vandalism. It would be very cool if he helps you out, but what's to stop it happening again if he sends a replacement? It puts him in a difficult position really.

    I assume customs in most countries have a policy where they can fuck your shit up with impunity if they suspect anything.

    Every time I've had dealings with customs they've pretty much laughed in my face and told me to go fuck myself.

    Can't they just use xrays??? I'm pretty sure they just enjoy doing such thing. .

    And realistically, he shouldn’t do anything since one less person entering his lotto won’t affect him at all.

    Is there any sort of insurance/coverage with EMS?

    Time will tell, its still early days. Atom did come across as a really nice guy when I used to email him directly, but that was a long time ago, his popularity and fan base is an entirely different thing now.

    Did you try glueing it yet? The damage is at the back of the figure and looks like a 'clean' break. If glued carefully I reckon you wouldn't see anything amiss whilst displayed on a shelf :thumbsup:

    I contacted usps first about it and they can’t do anything. Emailed Atom again and asked him about doing it on his end. I’m surprised he didn’t say he would try this first, can’t imagine this is the first time he has had this type of issue.

    @Mr. Humphreys thank you, it’s especially a bummer seeing everyone else getting their un broken diver.

    I can totally glue it, but it will always be one of those toys I’ll look at and not see that it’s busted no matter how perfect.

    I totally thought about how different things are for him even more so that most rxh pieces are so overpriced.

    If he doesn’t want to do anything about it, it’ll be a huge bummer. The few issues I’ve ever had with shipping from a toy maker had some kind of decent resolution.

    You are very welcome. So upsetting to receive something broken in the mail, especially a toy, and most especially an expensive toy! :x Perhaps the seller did not file with EMS first because he thought it was damaged stateside, but still... It's probably a pain in the petuties for an artist to file the paper work, but hopefully he'll give it an honest try--after all, that's what we pay extra for EMS for, and also he should understand your frustration as a buyer. From the little corner of your photo, the paint looks beautiful :cry::x

    p.s. I know exactly how you feel about the glue and "knowing it's always there", a real bummer :|

    Oh i hear you, that was just my clumsy attempt at putting a positive spin on the situation. I'd feel the same, we don't pay peanuts for these 'toys' either, which adds more insult to any injury. I'm hoping its a rare enough occurrence that it will stay in Atom's mind, so he remembers you and what happened. He might do something about it, yet.

    @IronPaw - This is just terrible. I hope the artist/seller is able to help you out with EMS insurance. If not, you could file a tort claim against US customs: https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/de...-damage-or-loss,-or-personal-injury,-or-death

    How common is this? I know somebody else was posting an Ollie that was broken open (by Canadian customs?). I have imported many boxes into the US without issue. I always make sure to ship with the full value declared just in case it it damaged or lost.

    @deafmetal the Ollie was mine, still sitting pretty on the shelf :lol: it could reasonably have been the weather in that case, but there's no doubt here. It's wild seeing that kind of damage in just a photograph.

    Fuck you squirrels! You eat the veggies in our garden and now you’re trying to break into our house! I’m seriously considering buying a shotgun or maybe a pellet gun or maybe just a motion activated sprinkler that kicks on every time you come into our yard..

    Fuck you to my sciatic nerve and another one to whatever bit me in my ear.

    So not only do I have massive back pain, I also have shooting pain down my leg, and whatever venom is causing my ear to swell, giving me a low grade headache, and is messing with my inner ear throwing off my equilibrium.
