    Are you sure it is a legit version of it (especially if it is Henkei at that price). There is a KO of it, and I hear that the leg sockets on them are a bit of an issue. I only have the KO Botcon version, and that was a POS where the socket didn't just pop out, but shattered all together.

    Never heard of this either, it sounds like you've bought a KO.

    It happens. My classics mirage was okay but my henkei mirage had a loose waist that I had to fix with nail polish.

    Sounds like you got a KO. I had the same issue with a Henkei Mirage that I thought was genuine but turned out to be a KO. In my case, I had bought it new off eBay and stored it in a rubber tub for months without opening it before I discovered its true nature. By then, it was too late to get a refund or do anything about it (I made the best out of a bad situation and just dismantled the thing for spare parts). In your case, I'd definitely try to get a refund, especially if it's from eBay or the like (cite it as "item not as described" if the seller tried to pass it off as the real deal and file a claim via PayPal if you must). And I suggest reading that article about how to spot KOs for future reference. Knowledge is power. Good luck.

    So is it the Classics version or Henkei?

    Not that it matters, I'm just curious. Neither should have that issue though (but it's not completely out of the question). I've got 5 versions of the figure and haven't had an issue with the waist.

    Now that I've had a look Both my classics mirages have a looseish waist.

    So does my Henkei one.

    Actually I have two henkei mirages.....but I'm presumimg the one I bought from Knightdramon is the one he referred to.
