That's what happened with my RD Dann of Thursday recently. The peg hole that connects the foot plate and leg wiring ended up just breaking because of how thin the plastic was + clear plastic to boot.

Thankfully, I was able to fix it and reattach the foot plate easily. No way I'm going to bother with connecting the wiring (plus, it actually improves the figure.)

You got lucky. A hip joint on mine broke when I tried to change its pose after a year of it being just standing on my desk. The clear plastic on that part is this as fuck and cracked by itself under the pressure of the pin. I managed to glue it together but I don't even bother to display it anymore.

I have come across loads of those situations recently. I can't stop falling into that trap. At least they were good deals and collectively didn't spend a ridiculous amount.

>>5408075
I had a notification once stating a package wasn't left because they couldn't find a safe place to leave it. Made a receptacle of sorts out of stuff on the porch. A combination of a chair and flower pots by the front door for them to throw packages into.

What's wrong with Fukuoka?

I know Nakano/Shibuya/SAHRA are the more expensive branches, and Umeda is the bro-est one.

>>5409270

Was it in a bad condition or something?

>>5409283
Nakano is the bro branch order something at 11pm EST and have order confirmation by 5am EST, they are the greatest.

Fukuoka are absolutely based when it comes to getting seriously rare, sought-after items in stock for extremely low prices.

The problem is that they apparently communicate with trained falcons. Takes days or sometimes even weeks for them to confirm or cancel an order, and sometimes just as long again to ship it.

I sometimes wonder if Fukuoka branch is literally some Japanese guy up a mountain still living like it's the age of warring states.
