    I just bought this second-hand Tigerzord this week and it arrived today.

    However, the tail piece which also makes up for the sword is warped at a large angle so I left it under some weight to straighten it out while I attended school hoping it would of at leas been decently straight when I got home.

    Nope, barely any difference was made so now I'm trying a different method.

    Gah, I really do hate soft plastic weapons at times DX

    Ugh... sounds like my 3.75" scale Cheetara's staff. It's a permanent U shape.

    Yeah, and so can putting them over a lightbulk to heat up the plastic. You can run shit under hot water too, but then you can end up warping it even worse during the drying time, so yeah.

    My Classics He-Man sword is warped. This really sucks. I mean his power sword, the most important weapon of him! :( 
    Don't know which sucks more, the floppy ankles of him and Skeletor or his warped sword...

    Mine was bent and had chew marks. Thankfully I was able to get a MiB Tigerzord with chrome sword later on. Man that thing's so cool.

    Well, at least those sword don't look too shitty. Granted, the chrome ones are nicer, but still.

    Some kids chew their toys. Hell, one of my old G2 jets still has chew marks.

    Hasbro really, REALLY needs to stop packaging SW figures with wepaons in their hands.
