Merry Christmas! Now what was your haul?6,381 Views37 RepliesAdd A Reply
Merry Christmas cretins. What Godzilla/kaiju/toku related thing did you get this year?
The only thing I got Godzilla related was King of the Monsters on Blu-ray. But I also scored a massive Ultraman haul with Ultraseven, Ultraman Orb and Ultraman Geed Blu-ray.
Well my concerns are that all her front legs are leaning towards the right side, one of her back legs one foot is bent to a side, only one leg moves, I can't seem to fit her in the pole where she stands, like sure it holds her but she doesn't "get" inside the semicircle. Plus the position she's in is different from all the boxart but that doesn't worry me as much. Here are the pics:
Okay, so the legs being bent/leaning has to do with how the soft plastic was packaged, mine has a similar issue to a lesser extent. You can try dipping them in a bowl of hot water for 15-30 seconds, bending them straight and then holding them like that in cold water for a minute or two. Didn't work too great for me, but it's worth a shot. The heat might also loosen up the legs you say don't move(The hind legs are actually on balljoints, btw)
As for the pole, first thing to do is make sure that little tab is pointed towards the head. After that it's really just trial and error to find that sweet spot where she clips in.
I think I should return it instead, don't wanna risk breaking it.
I've found Mothra to be pretty durable, haven't had the pole crack at all and only popped a back leg out once by accident(that's how I know those are on balljoints). Heat won't break anything, just make it more pliable, I needed it to get her legs safely moving in the first place. NECA figures are often like that.
However if you don't feel comfortable trying that, it can't hurt to try your luck with another Mothra. I'd advise checking to make sure they have it on the shelf to compare with before returning the first one.
Shelf? They don't sell these in my country I ordered by amazon.
Oh, that would make my idea pretty useless, wouldn't it?
I don't think I've seen a Mothra pic online where the legs weren't bent to some degree out of the package, but admittedly yours is worse than usual. If you don't want to risk fixing it, that's your call, I'm literally not the boss of you. Best of luck either way.
I got two Godzilla pop vinyls, which I have 99 and my goal is to get to 200. I got Detective Pikachu, which I gotta say, the giant Torterras reminded me of when Titanus Methuselah rose from the ground when he was awakened by Ghidorahs calls.
