    I never had any particular problems with it, at least til a 3 foot fall onto tile. Admittedly my fault also. I think the core design is fine but the way the door and the floor plate piece rotate separately is deceptive, and I could definitely see breaking it.

    They utilize the same customer service.

    Here's a picture of my breakage. Disregard the glue slime though.

    It's been almost exactly 3 months since I got in contact with XTB and they delivered! My boy is whole again.

    Great news!

    Both Skids and Harold are awesome figures. Happy I picked up Skids.

    Thanks guys! He's one of my favorite figures for whatever reason and getting him all fixed up is quite a joy. :D

    They gave him the replacement part. The latest pics show the fix on both sides--he's just holding his old broken door.

    not sure if anyone already replied, but both Savant and Taiho have a hard time keeping those upper arms tabbed in when you display him. I find it mildly annoying but as they do hold in a pose I’m fine with it..

    It honestly might be worth it just removing the clasps entirely. Certainly not ideal since it’s a good look and concept, but would remove the hinderance.
