Right out of the box the figures had very tight joints, and in the process of loosening them up for posing the right arm of Kyle snapped off at the bicep. The post inside his upper arm joint is very small and if too much stress is placed on the joint it can break.

Looks Like DC Direct didnt change any of their manufacturing practices to me.


That's too bad Stew. Finally picked mine up last weekend from my friend that picked it up for me.

I'm glad to see you are working on more Infinite Heroes customs.
Is that the Hush head on Negative Man? That figure has been on my to do list for a long time.

No, I don't remember which head I used, might be a Guy Gardner. I wrapped it by hand.

So, guess who's back to business? :mrgreen:

Finally received my GL 2-pack from DC Collectibles! They're the exact same size, have lots of articulation, great looking painting and awesome sculpting. Everything I ever wanted from my IH. They look great together IMO.. :mrgreen:

Nice customs Lord Mudd. :wink:

Really upset here, my John Stewart/Atrocitus pack arrived, and when I was carefully posing Atrocitus his right arm broke. I was getting the others to take a pic, and Kyle Rayner arm broke too. Anyone could think that I broke it handling it without care, but that's not the case. o be honest, in almost 30 years collecting figures this happened up to 10 times, but never with figures that didn't had stuck articulations like these. The joints just deteriores and broke like they're made of thin glass. Really sad, specially fo the price of these figures. I just don't know if I'll get more of them. :(

I have seen a couple of other reports of this happening. I would contact the company and emphasize how "unimpressed" you are.
