    I find when it's super crumbly working in some baby oil helps it get back to a more manageable state. Baby oil has so many uses SO MANY!! Haha but ya know it means extra work verses just finding some good clay

    Opened what I'd hoped would be my first Ollie to find that a chunk got taken out of the stomach. Big hole, parts warped. Could have just been the cold during shipping, but I'm suspecting customs because the label on the box is torn, the arm is removed and it got delayed because the unit was held for inspection. Customs agents need to chill.

    Posted in the 'fuck you' thread but here we go. Sorry for the spam. Feeling pretty low, that's all. It was a solid CCM blank too, don't know if there are any others like it out there. Some parts are missing or maybe just warped too much, so I couldn't glue it back. The arm is still there, I just didn't attach it. I guess someone cracked it open before realising they could just take the arm off to look inside.

    So not cool. I am so sorry @zindabad

    There has to be a claims department with customs, right?

    WTF?

    These were all mixed, blue and pink, I actually own the all pink version. I’ve only ever seen one blue version.

    Yep. Part of why I'm so upset. The guy who sold it to me told me he knew of one other solid blue out there, so to whoever owns that: congratulations, you have a one-off now :lol:

    @spatula007 I wouldn't know where to start. I've had friends who tried the same and they usually just say the guys on the other side did it, then you call them and they say US customs did it. No fun.

    yikes. you definitely have a story now. oddly enough I still enjoy it now. faux a small ziplock filled with baking soda, pills, or something that faux drugs, display it with that in the belly... might as well. lol

    You know what I’ve seen this before. Not this extreme but have seen breaks and shatters.

    From experience it’s usully older vinyl. Since vinyl is more or less a living material over time it tends to off gas and dry up a bit. Some get gritty, some get brital. But rule of thumb treat older vinyl with more care.

    I’m not sure where this came from, but even extreme climate change can cause this. So say this was in the hull of a ship, extreme climate change and pressure from going up in the air and then landing, then say they are tossing the living shit out of the package around it’s higher to damage.

    Then if you do have customs also being rough it’s only gonna make it worse.

    So this can have totally happened legitimately. But it also could have been someone just getting rid of something they broke. And why I’m always weary to see people buy in the aftermarket. I get that if you missed a drop or want to complete a collection you have to.

    If you have all the parts it’s possible to fix, but it’s never gonna be good looking without paint.

    Sorry this happened.

    Canada. I believe it was air-mail that landed in Chicago, maybe just the awful cold we've been having. Anyway, I'll have to figure it out. At least it's just one part that's broken. Still a beautiful blue. Just sad that it rattles when I move it now, from the break rubbing.

    Thank you. For the record I don't know that customs are the right people to blame here, and I'll stop pointing the finger. But there's enough for me to believe someone opened it, whoever it was. The shipping label is torn on the side of the box I didn't open, and it's been re-taped. The arm had been removed. I had a Buta King Joe in the same box and each of the tape-sealed baggies had been left open with the tape still there. God knows what happened. Anyway, time to get over it. Thanks for sharing this shitty moment with me, everyone.

    Grateful that nobody cracked open the King Joe, or they'd have found all the coke I was having delivered.

    If you've bought anything from Manny, you might want to check it to see if it came with an omake inside. :|
