I don't think there is a consensus. The numbers you see in the poll coupled with Amazon Japan pulling the listing (speculatively due to returns, but no one knows for certain) are all we really know with certainty. We don't have any way of knowing for certain how many out of the total production volume of the product will end up suffering from these issues. My gut read of it, looking at why it happens (the joint being two pieces instead of one, with one being considerably softer than the other and thus prone to warping over time,) says it's at least a possibility for everyone. But we can't really say for sure. Some possibilities that could preclude that though would be: They did a running change at some point and it's already been corrected for all current and future production runs. (We don't know, but some anecdotally have reported opening theirs and finding those two pieces already bonded together and not needing to do the fix.) Those in two pieces are somehow an assembly error and they were meant to be bonded all along and most are for all we know. In which case, presumably, all will be from now on. Some strange highly improbable but possible factors like the wrong material or material mixture somehow getting into a certain batch of parts making them softer than they should be - e.g. perhaps the softness isn't universal - etc. etc. Which could help explain why some people seem to be able to almost abuse him without the knees ever breaking. (Or maybe they just have really good luck - that's always possible too lol.) We have no idea, honestly. I do feel comfortable, personally, though I respect the views of those who disagree, saying that IF it was intended all along to be two pieces and for one to be softer than the other, then yes, imo it's a design flaw. Simply because physics, torque, and leverage clearly create the propensity for the issue to emerge in that case. Whether the tab is tracking correctly or not. If it's NOT intentional, and they overlooked it in assembly in the first few runs or something and it's been since corrected going forward, then it's more of an assembly or materials flaw. But what I feel 100% certain of, is that it's not predominantly user error. I think that much is clear. Right now, we're basically working under the assumption that the issue is at least possible in every unit, unless we can confirm a running fix has happened, or that it really is more isolated that it appears. It appears relatively widespread, though. But in absolute fairness, we can't say that with certainty right now. All we know for certain is that over 50 people here have had it, and that it isn't all just people mishandling their figure or the tab not tracking. And that 80 people haven't had it so far.
