That blue Wing Kong is awesome!
Overall very happy with my bag! Will post pics later today of everything! But not sure why his head is like this . I emailed customer service so hopefully I can switch it out.
Try hitting him with a hairdryer, I think his head will pop back into place.
is it cut weird? looks like something a blow dryer might be able to fix!
You got the 'Looking at the Tower of Pisa' chase version!
Yeah so take the head off and see if the vinyl was cut at a weird angle. If not, 20 seconds under a blow dryer will do the trick.
It does add some character to it right now though. Makes you wonder what he's looking at.
Very happy with my bag!!!
i think it looks kindda cool like this
Thanks for the kind words everyone but when I pay 240 bucks for something I expect it to be without flaws. Still waiting for a response from super7. Figure their just busy right now.
Occasionally we get things like that from the factory, its caused by the vinyl getting squished while it is still warm. I do my best to catch them as I'm packing the bags, but with all the various toys going in all the various places, I seem to have missed one. Sorry to send you a weirdo!
The solution is indeed hitting it with a hair dryer. If you'd prefer not to, you can send it back and I'll take care of it. We are currently working through a massive customer service backlog related to a very large Masters of the Universe launch, email me directly and we'll get it sorted out - firstname.lastname@example.org
A hairdryer is a beautiful thing to have as a sofubi collector. Make toys stand up straight again, pop joints out and in to mashup pieces, fix "leaning toy syndrome" that sometimes comes about from years of sitting on a shelf... fun for everyone!
Doesn't cause any harm either, unless you have an atomic ray gun hairdryer.
You're buying the wrong toys if flawless is what you expect. Also, you didn't pay $240 for that one toy. Curious to know, what would you do if Josh doesn't have a replacement?
^^ plus unless it is cut poorly (which I doubt) that isn't a flaw. That's actually really common with vinyl. I'm pretty sure 90% of the folks on this board have a blow dryer for just such an occasion.
All my toys are flawless with their imperfections.
Has anyone recommended a hairdryer? I'd maybe try that real quick
Yeah, I guess it depends what thread discussions people actually read in here, but seems overwhelmingly unanimous that hairdryer (or failing that, the ol' hot water immersion trick) is just about as commonplace among us 'collectors'/toy players as unwrapping toys. Heck, even for vintage toys, the old blow dry gets them rejuvenated and standing like new. When dealing with bent flashing, a good heating when apart, followed by some gentle squeezing and turning of the joint when re-assembled will generally return any 'squished' parts right to their perfect as-pulled state, and as a bonus, can sometimes help tighten up loosened joints. And if you are still really concerned afterwards, try holding it up to a bright light, and you can usually make out inside whether the flash has been correctly inserted, if you can't tell from the socket.
Either that, or you just got the super rare 1-off variant everyone has been chasing, and you would be a fool to send it back to Super7 for a mere 'common' replacement.
Thank you! Sending email now!
I couldn't resist...
Did he try a blender yet?
