Figure Defects, and some Drunken Kaiju

Figure Defects, and some Drunken Kaiju
07 Jul 2010 03:29:13

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.

Kaiju sure love their sake:

Thanks for reading!

Sucks about the ryu, but at least you got a neat godzilla out of it!

That picture of ryu randomly reminds me of how Ashens describes knock off street fighter games.

Drinking Godzilla and Reimu is one of the funniest figure photos i've seen EVER!XD
Godzy-chan looks totally drunk & crazy!

Thought I'm sorry to hear about Ultraman and Ryu, the pic of Ryu with his hand in his hand also looks damn hilarious! XDD
I'm too old for this shit, ain't I?

Omg, I felt so sorry for you when started reading the blog... but I can't stop laughing now after I saw Godzilla pics! Ha-ha-ha, cute toy! And about Ultraman - well, at least it doesn't look very expensive (or is it?). Once I got a 1/7 scaled figurine with most of her hair broken off.

Ultraman was about 2000Y from Amiami (retails normally for about 2700Y, give-or-take), and Amiami are usually total bros about replacing defective items, so I'm not too concerned. However, the line this Ultraman came from (ULTRA-ACT) is a spinoff line from Bandai's S.H. Figuarts. Honestly, Figuarts are pretty much perfection as far as posable figures go - the most posable on the market, more durable than Figmas, wonderful QC, cheaper than many posable lines for the most part, and they even have die-cast metal feet, allowing them to balance in insane poses. So you can imagine why I was a bit disappointed when a Figuarts spinoff had such horrible QC.

How frustrating to have two broken figures! Ugh!
Still, at least it wasn't your fault so you could get them replaced/fixed.
I broke my Nendoroid KAITO's icecream and there's nothing I can do about it. When it happened I felt like I was going to die TT_TT

Great pics, though! Godzilla's face in the last one! LOOOOL That's gotta be the funniest figure photo I've seen!
