Basically, what you'd be looking for is easy enough to see; the black knee joint that connects the thigh to the shin on the figure was put in upside down by the manufacturer and will thus stick out a liiiittle bit when he's being posed on his feet. Hope that clarifies it a wee bit!
Are you able to pop it out and fix it? You can try emailing Hasbro about it. I have done it in the past with star wars figures and they've sent me replacements! You might have to provide picture proof, but I didn't have to. They do have pretty decent CS.

I think that popping it out may do more harm than good. The issue is only a minor aesthetic one and doesn't really affect the figure as a whole. Well, I suppose it does also slightly inhibit the poseability of the right leg as the knee can't bend as much as the other.


I may look into contacting them though! Did you have to send the old figure back to get the new one sent to you?

You probably implicitly answered that question already when you said they didn't need you to provide picture proof; if they didn't need photo evidence, I'm guessing they wouldn't need the actual figure either.

Nope never had to send the figures back. I had a Plo Koon whose arm kept falling off and the other figure was a WW2 Captain America that didn't come with a shield. With both figures the store I bought them from was out of stock and I told that to Hasbro, otherwise I would have just gone for an exchange.

Has anyone come across the 3.75 black series where the packaging is falling apart? I saw some at walmart this morning and the bubble was basically falling off the cardback, I wonder if they will recall them and fix the problem or just let it go and fix it with later waves

After summoning some courage, I took my Sandtrooper down to my tea kettle and using steam, got the knee joint off, placed it back correctly, and after some fiddling and poking, got it back on securely. My Sandtrooper no longer has a gimp knee! The power of heat!


Yo! Science, b*tch!

Nice! Nothing worse than having a messed up figure. The Hasbro plastic seems sturdier and more consistent I find than other companies (yeah, that means you Mattel).
