Oh, the irony. My set of DCUC6 arrived today, and after so many problem-free DCUC figures, I was finally struck by the dreaded limb breakage. The victim? The Man of Steel, of all people. Be warned, the following images are not for the faint of heart!
When the leg wouldn’t move, I tried the freezer trick. After taking it out it was still pretty stuck, so I tried moving the leg to the side using the H-hinge (to loosen it up a bit more), and that part broke. At that point, I gave up and went for broke, trying to move the peg, and it broke off but good. I have a hunch no amount of fiddling could have saved this one.
It’s not really that big of a deal, since I’ve pre-ordered the Brainiac/Superman two-pack, and I would have replaced mullet Supes with that one on display anyway (provided its leg doesn’t break off, of course).
The good news is, Mister Miracle, Dr. Impossible and Kalibak are all healthy and posable.
Ugly. I hate broken toys. They’re a waste of money, and worse, a waste of plastic and thus, the environment. If anyone wants this figure for customizing or whatever, email me and I’ll send you the remains free of charge. [UPDATE: Taken!]
