Dear Brothers and Sisters
:salute: :salute: :salute:
I created this new topic for all in order to share the problems (technically factory defect or careless due to poor materials or instruction :shock: :shock: :shock: ), and appropriate suggestions to prevent the unnecessary on our 1/6 figures from HT, EB, and others.

Case #1
Let me open my case - my Watchmen Comedian - body suit (shoulder parts) were started oil leaking last month since I bought and displayed upon it arrival (first batch). I carefully remove the oil by using my fingers and put the papers to capture the oil in timing with assumption that the oil will be ended and try such as DX02 (I dum buy it). BUT last Saturday, I found that the oil leaking stopped but the rubber turned to "Chewing gum" (only the shoulder rubber parts of the body SUIT) others parts are ok.

From ebay.com I found
It is new but has oil leaking problem. Please beware of the shoulder areas as it's easy to damage when dressing onto the body.

I would say it's a bad reaction between the rubber/muscle torso and the rubber "body armor/suit".... I've 2 copies of the body armor too, I believe no damage yet.

But Uncle's one comedian still ok no oil leaking...
Is it the same concept for the DX02 oil leaking bro. BeastX?
:doubt: :doubt: :doubt:

Case #2
Old knee joints of Black TT bodies, Abe Sapien/Tereus/Batman are highly prone to breakage. The joints are badly designed in general, but non-skin coloured TT are especially easy to break.

Case #3
Shoulder design of muscle bodies like Barney Ross/Whiplash/T-800 breaks/screw thread strips easily.

Good of you to start up with this topic, tatuche.

Seems like most of the defects deteriorate with time.. sigh!
