AUGH! Mattel "Quality Control" gets the last laugh. :(


Recommended Posts

The worst happened to me last night when I went to assemble my Darkseid BAF to save space in the house.


Got to the leg that came with Iron and the thigh was attached to the leg backwards. @grumpy@


Now I need to find another Iron to complete my lord Darkseid.


Come on Mattel. Don't you have someone checking these things before you ship them?


So glad I'm not currently new BAF hunting and thankful that most of my other BAFs turned out well (Despero had a problem, can't recall what). Blech!

If i'm understanding this right, couldn't you just boil and pop the thigh off, turn it around, and put it back together?


I'm no good with toy mods / hacks. Plus I'm afraid to boil since his boot knee cover is a much thinner piece of plastic.


If I were to attempt it, which tools should I use?

If I remember correctly several people thought the same thing but realized the leg was just packaged in such a way that the top part of the leg was simply turned around and all you need to do is turn it back around.


You => @pow@ <= Me




That fixed it.


I'm a weenie. Move along, nothing to see here. @propeller@


Oh, and I remembered; one of Despero's arms wasn't fully clamped down. I tried to get it on the peg; but it didn't work. :(
