    What's the chances of any revoltech GLs being left after the preorders, at BBTS in particular? I don't have a credit card so I couldn't put down the preorder.

    The Revoltech GLs, as far as I know, aren't Friend shop exclusives or anything like that, so they should be in ample supply like any of the other mass produced ones. Don't know about BBTS because I've never ordered from them, but you can preorder at HLJ and pay by paypal once they have it in stock.

    Okey-dokey, someone just gave me a Revoltech Pocco (very cute little thing, awesome design and detailing though I'm a bit weirded out by her removeable skirt!) but her left arm came off at the elbow joint off almost instantly. It's not a revoltech joint, it's kind of a square peg thing but I can't get it to snap back on. Anyone else had this problem, and is it possible to glue it without screwing up the joint movement?

    P.S Seeing as I have a Revotech, I'd better get my butt over to the Revoltech social group...

    The same thing happened to my Asuka, i didn't want to glue it so i applied pressure and now it stays on. it's not perfect but it doesn't fall off as easily anymore.:(

    Thanks for the suggestion dude. :thumbs2: I've been trying that and it kinda sticks but as soon as you touch the figure it falls off again. I might give her the glue and see what happens. The non-revotech joints do seem to be flimsy as hell though. Your Asuka and my Pocco seem to share the same design flaw. Poor girls.

    That happened to my Tohsaka Rin.

    I used Loctite 406 plastic weld, a tiny wee pinhead drop of it mind, and everythings hunky dory again. We have Loctite 406 at work, it is used for fixing seals etc. in industial applications during emergencies.

    Ooh, cool. I'll give that a try. Thanks dude. :thumbs2: 
    If it works I'll put a pic up of Pocco saying thank you. :D

    I have no camera, so I can't take pictures, but I got Getter 1 (ova version) and Mazinkaiser at Botcon. They're pretty awesome. I am wondering something about Getter 1, though. Is there any way to keep the Getter Wing on? It keeps popping right off after awhile.

    Just got confirmation two minutes ago that my payment for the Regult and Gurren Lagann was confirmed! They should be on their way from HLJ soon. So excited! That Regult is gonna looks sweet next to my Valkyries! :drool:  Also managed to save on shipping! Hopefully have them by the weekend or early next week! :rock
