View Full Version : Melty Amanaman staff :(

Has anyone else had this proble:

Amanaman's staff has kinda sorta melted in a way. It's like the molecular bonds in the plastic have become weak in a certain area...about half and inch below the skulls and now it just bends over like nobody's business. Even if I prop it up against something, it moves itself just to melt over! :(

1. Hasbro have created a new kind of plastic specifically to melt in this way. All accessories and weapons will be made in this way. it's a surrealist in joke......

2. Your room is too warm and you need to cool the figures and accessories down for them to retain their molecular integrity.

3. You have excessively strong body odour......... j/k :p

think of it this way, if they didn't make it all goopy and soft you may have poked your eye out!!!!

Maybe someone should come up with an idea to make reproduction weapons with better plastic. Then we could just buy all of them at once. And chuck our stock ones

They have, they're called reproductions of vintage Amanaman staffs. :D

I've had this problem with my Amanaman's staff before. I got it back to it's original shape and I havn't had that problem since. Weird huh? It's stays up for now.

Perhaps it's entered puberty and will stay up ALL the time!! Go get that big notebook!!!

Well i just posed Ami.. with his staff and just stare at him for a couple days...then I forgot him in a shelf for a week....:mad: When I looked at the staff it was totally bended...!Till today couldn't straighten it up....maybe i'll try painting with a clear coat of acrilic paint...or something, but this new plastic is really awfull....makes OOM-9 be a really good figure!:dead:

i think i'm the only one who hasn't had any issues with it. its bendy but if you get it in the right position it stays fine. mine hasn't fallen over or drooped at all and i've had him for a couple of months now
