I tell you...I must hold the world record for breaking a toy...not 2 minutes out of a package. Talk about completely deflating the fun out of a Sunday afternoon with my son.
Two weeks ago I purchased the AT-ST at a Wal-Mart near me. The vehicle and contents were completely secured within the package, the carton was factory sealed and not damaged in any way...and all tie wraps were secured.
This past weekend, when I decided to open the package, I carefully removed the AT-ST from the packaging and upon extending the LEFT leg of the AT-ST to articulate it so it could stand on its own, it immediately snapped off. I could not believe it! I carefully examined the damage...and noticed that the defective piece could easily be replaced. Has anyone else had this problem?
Also...are all of the joints in the leg articulated? After the above occurred...I was very apprehensive to try articulate the foot and other joints in the leg, fearing I would inadvertently break something else.
