You guys can keep the Warlords, I just want Talpa himself!
Right now, the only thing that has me keeping my collection is the hope for the Warlords and Talpa seeing a release.
With all the breakage reports, if those 5 don't see any form of a release, I'll probably sell my whole collection. It's really hard to resist that urge, especially for the insanely high amounts of money they all go for now.
Terribly sad to see how various parts continually break on everyone's figures. Wonder if it's the materials, or bad QC all around.
That doesn't really matter, it's just not done on a 100$+ figure!
I have 2 and they stay MISB for that reason.
Bummer! Wish I could help, but I had my own issues with that back piece. The scabbards broke off where they connect into the back. It was my fault, and I was able to fix it with some glue, but it was a pretty fragile connection.

If the Google Translate is working right, I think it's saying Mukala will ship either on the 19th, or the 27th. Either way, only a few weeks to go until he arrives!
I just hope this Inferno doesn't suffer the same broken-hip fate as the previous ones have...
Just checked the Facebook page, and it looks like it's official. Mukala has been released! Finally!
More from 2ch:
I really didn't expect them to do anything with the crotchpiece, so I can't be too upset, but it would have been nice to have been given a black colored crotch so that he didn't look completely naked when armored up.
A little custom black paint will take care of that. I just got my new biocard printed today, and now everything is ready for Mukala's arrival. Can't wait! ^_^
Just in case some of you missed this earlier, I'm re-posting these for you. Mukala's new bio-card.
Oh, and I have to say I'm very disappointed with the new box for Mukala. I was fine with the black and white scheme of the gloss Inferno, but I don't like it with Mukala. Hopefully they don't cheap-out his instruction book like they did with the gloss Inferno as well. Talpa and the Dark Warlords had better come with colored boxes...
No interest in this but such a shame they didn't go out with a bang.
I'm officially letting go of holding my breathe for Talpa and the Warlords and Black Blaze
Hate to report it... but my Kengo's left hip cracked, and this is after I only put him in the armor ONCE! This is definitely a defect in the plastic, even with him not wearing the armor the hip still cracked, so the weight of the armor obviously played no additional role in the cause of breakage.
Don't "hate to report it". Every break should be reported! What are we up to now? I know of at least three people having Sage breaks (four if you count both my Sage figures), and at least two Inferno's. Seriously, this problem needs to be brought to Bandai's attention. Considering the starting price of these figures, and what they are going for nowadays, this problem is just ridiculous and downright unacceptable!
I swear, this cracked hip problem had better be resolved before Talpa and the Warlords are announced later this year...
Didn't someone mention a page or two ago that Black Inferno came with flame effect parts? I haven't seen those in any of the pictures. Was the post perhaps confusing it with the Figuarts flame effects parts that will be coming out?
Monochrome (with perhaps 1-2 colors) boxes are the new norm for Bandai web-exclusive releases. There are a few exceptions to the rule (DBZ Figuarts are in color and have a window) however.
Good example of that is with the Robot Damashii Deathscythe. The upgraded "Hell" was a standard release, but the original was a web-exclusive so we get this:
I'm happy to report all of mine are in perfect condition but will never be touched anymore,lol
My Mukala just shipped from Nippon-yasan! Can't wait to get this guy!
If you pick up your figure and the leg sways, you've got a cracked hip
Mukala finally arrived!
And don't these two just look "cool" with these new effects?
