    Is it just me, or does it seem like the way the thigh section is cut to meet the hip joint hinder articulation?

    It does to some extent. Same goes for Vegeta and Trunks.

    Only slightly, but it's a minimal sacrifice to not have to deal with the waist pegs breaking.

    Which figures have you had the waist peg break on?

    Ok, I just bought AoU Cap, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk for a great deal from a friend. So these are now going to be my go to Marvel collection. I've preordered Doctor Strange, picked up Tony Stark from HLJ and Antman from eBay. Any suggestions for finding Black Panther or Black Widow at more reasonable prices? I can't believe Big Bad Toy Store is the cheapest game in town.

    I've never heard of a waist peg issue with DBZ SHFs either.

    Check Mandarake. I don't know if they'll be significantly cheaper (I'm pretty sure Black Widow, at least, is not going to be available anywhere close to retail at this point), but the exchange rate could help lower the price a bit.

    Gokai Red, Kamen Rider Skyrider, Gokai Green, and many others had breakage with the waist pegs on the Shinkengers.

    I don't think any Dragon Ball figure has been reported as having that occur yet, but I'm quite weary about those pegs now, especially since they got rid of them with the newer figures, showing their own concern for the issues.

    I just started ordering some items from them and it seems pretty reasonable. The items I got were larger than SHF and around 1000 yen each. SHF figures should be under 900 yen. I always choose the cheapest method (SAL).

    Yeah, pretty much what Slave said. Larger SHFs will naturally be more expensive and some may not qualify for SAL shipping (thinking of Tridoron, Genocider, Hulkbuster) but it seems to differ from store to store which ones say it doesn't qualify for SAL and which do.

    If you purchase anything from the SAHRA store, you'll actually get a shipping quote as you check out because each SAHRA item (last I checked) was confirmed as in stock, compared to the other Mandarake stores that have storefront items that they have to check first to confirm it's in stock.

    I decided not to get WarMachine 3. And didn't upgrade the Mk6, but mine's so loose now. It can no longer fly under the weight of his feet.

    Beaten me to it! Yeah but I can attest that broken pegs did occur in some of the above figures. I can't recall if others had the same issues too.
