Figure Defects, and some Drunken Kaiju

Hey, everyone! You remember how one of the items from the Amiami loot in my last blog was an ULTRA-ACT Ultraman? Well, it turns out that the figure's defective. The waist joint is so floppy, the figure can't even support its own weight.
The superglue trick didn't fix the problem, either. At this point, all I can do is contact Amiami in the hopes that they can hook me up with Bandai's parts-replacement department. Regardless, I had some cash to spare, so I decided to go down to my local comic shop and grab a little something to make up for my frustrations. I grabbed a SOTA Ryu, and lo and behold, his arm had snapped off inside the package.
You can imagine how I felt at this point. Anyway, I took the figure back to the shop. While they normally aren't allowed to do returns on opened items, they gave me store credit because I've been a customer of theirs for so long - here's a shout-out to the employees of Harrison's Comics for being total bros! With the store credit, I grabbed a vinyl Godzilla.
