    My seller has said it’s normal as the birdie head is too heavy.

    Before starting work on the neck, you have a chicken pecking mode.


    He’s still able to maintain certain traditional positions of course. But anything too exciting, he will fail keep it up or to perform.

    I wonder if you can slide something thin into certain joint hinges to make them hold position

    if he needs to be modded seriously to fix the neck. it might make more sense to drill him out and run a wire through his joints.

    that is what i would do outside of returning him of course.

    I've never once had his neck droop on me. Always holds its position just fine.

    @LazyAza would it be too much trouble to send me a video (PM?) of you adjusting the neck in various positions? I’d like to send that to my seller to show that it isn’t normal to have a floppy thingy like they suggested. Looks like mine is not the normal stiffness huh.

    Mine shipped from... Oh right. TCP still doesn't have it. I mean I guess it shipped from China. On a boat. That will get to them eventually. So yeah, technically it's shipped. I'm seriously considering avoiding TCP in the future with all this slow boat nonsense.

    Someone said everybody in North America got the slow boat, wither they wanted it or not. Can't blame the Chosen Prime for that one. And I'm in the same boat as you I bought from him too. We just got to be patient.

    Mine was like yours, bought directly from Planet Steel Express, where did you buy it?
    The main problem was in the first joint, next to the body, I put some superglue there and now it works like Lazyaza's, who knows for how long...
