    I got that ehobby set from RK today. My junkion came with 2 left hands and an axe that does not work. They are sold out so the only thing I can do is return it. Which means I lost out on the shipping, then I gotta ship back! Is this worth it?

    You could just get a Wreck-gar to replace the hand, and use the Wreck-Gar add-on to get a new axe. You dont even need to paint the hand a different color. I mean, he's a Junkion, he could be a little mismatched. To me I think its a better use of the money you'd spend to ship him back. and the handless Wreck-Gar could take the new head from the kit, and the chest piece so nothing goes to waste, except that Wreck-Gar would have either two left hands or missing a hand entirely. but again-as an extra junkion... Could even keep him in bike mode to be ridden

    I'm thinking maybe someone can cast a hand in that color?

    I say work with what you got. I don't see it being worthwhile to ship it back so maybe do a little modding to the figure and it could turn out just fine.

    I know, I know. I dont care about the axe, its the hand. I can steal an axe from a US WG.

    Problem fixed. I'll dump the other 2 on ebay and buy the set again. I'll have 2 junkions and the other 2.

    But as you said... they are sold out :confused: 

    Heck, it's a Junkion, it would be unique having one with 2 left hands as it is :)

    I would've thought sitting tight a few weeks and seeing if anybody got two rights hand might be the best option.

    Is that doesn't work, i think somebody reasonably capable with an airbrush could repaint a Wreck-Gar hand such that the color difference isn't noticeable.
