    Hey guys, yesterday I got the new Voyager Long Haul and boy is it cool! The moving arm pistons are especially awesome and the giant over-head bar really isn't as bad as it would seem.

    After removing it from the box and transforming it once,(one of the trickiest leg transformations I have seen), I noticed that one of the fingers was slightly discolored and a small crack was appearing.

    I don't know how it happened but I was quite gentle with the figure while transforming it. So be careful with the hands out there!

    By the way, any suggestions on how to fix it? I was thinking epoxy...

    Edit: By the way, are there any picture/pose requests?

    he may still be hard to fins and it is broken so returning it is valid, but if u do return it who knows how long it'll be till u find another

    Hey, thanks!

    Yea, I was thinking the same thing about not returning it. Plus I got it mostly for bragging rights among my friend/collectors.

    I'll get another one for in box display when they become more available.

    theres no way that happened from transformation unless you are very violent. Longhaul is not hard to transform at all. Just tale it slow the first time

    Epoxy would work. Just make sure to use the smallest amount possible.

    Come on dude! I want one badly enough, why must you rub it in????

    Anyways, I have no clue. How serious is it? is a finger about to fall off or something?

    Sorry! The wait will be worth it though :) 

    Yea, the picture shows the finger is not in danger of falling off immediately, but it could bend to the point of snapping off if I was careless with moving it.
