    Got mine in. Seeing all the other pics being posted though, I guess I got a bit unlucky with the ugly sprue marks. Any recommendations on how to fix? IMG_20240127_124801.jpg IMG_20240127_124741.jpg IMG_20240127_124733.jpg

    Those sprue marks appear to end up on the back of the arms on other copies. Is it possible the forearms can be rotated?

    It's one solid piece unfortunately, you can tell by the other sprue mark being visible on the upper arm on other copies whilst for mine it's on the under-side. Only way to flip it is by removing the pin that's connecting it to the rest of the arm. The only other instance I've seen where those nub marks appear like mine, is in the Takara instruction video posted 2 pages back funny enough

    That’s a bummer. You could try carefully sanding the area with a very fine grid. Or, if you’re in Japan, you could reach out to TakaraTomy and get the parts replaced. You’ll need to send in the figure and be without it for a few weeks though.

    Mine’s still sitting in the Amazon warehouse down the road. Wish they’d just let me cycle up to the premises to pick the damn thing up lmao

    If it's any consolation, mine's "on hold" currently. Probably customs paperwork, but still says I'll have it on Wednesday
