    Has ANYONE had any luck getting the repair kit for this guy from Fanstoys? I emailed them back in November and they replied back almost immediately. They said they would send it out and that it would take about 6 to 8 weeks for delivery. I never received it so I tried emailing them again numerous times but they will not respond. I am so disappointed in Fanstoys . I have supported them since the beginning with Quakewave and have never had a problem with any of their figures except for Hoodlum . I have never had to deal with them before. Do they not stand behind their products? I would at least like to touch up the chip on the hood . It bugs the crap out of me. If someone could at least tell me what touch up paint to use I would be eternally grateful. Please help.

    Nicely done! What would make these even nicer is if it allowed for a butterfly swivel.

    If you contacted in November, it's only about 8 weeks now. Follow up and see if there's any tracking info.

    I've tried contacting FT multiple times, over the past week, to get any info but they will not respond to my emails. I guess I will give it a few more weeks.

    So, I am late to this figure, but would appreciate any help.
    Got the figure from BBTS today and big surprise it has a chipped hood right out of the box and no pad. So, is there/was there a period when they sent out copies with the waist pad to prevent the paint issues or what is the situation with that? If I try getting another figure from somewhere else, is there any way to know if it will come with the waist pad, without opening the box? I asked BBTS if they could check any replacement copy they would send me to make sure the replacement us not already damaged as well, but they state they will not do that.
    If I just keep it, what is the best way to repair it and then prevent damage in the future?
    Sorry for all the questions. Thank you.
