Figures breaking right out of the box?

Recommended Posts

Hey so I thought this was both funny and sad at the same time, I recently bought Brother Voodoo from Amazon (he was on sale at the time), I received it freshly factory sealed, I opened the box and moved his arm from the packaged placement and he completely exploded! in absolute pieces, he just fell right apart, I notified Amazon because I wanted to make sure he wasn't a return or something and he was not, this was how he came from the factory. Has anyone else ever had this happen? I have never heard of this occurring with any Legend or had this happen before it has really made me weary.

Never happened to me before!  That blows!

Did Amazon give you a refund?

nope because there was no proof that it wasn't completely my fault, and I get that, I payed like 6 bucks or something and ordered him with a bunch of other things so it wasn't a huge loss, but now I won't even try and buy that figure again

Have you contacted Hasbro’s customer service? I had a Starlord’s foot break right out of the package that I bought from Target and I called Hasbro’s customer service.  After sending some proof that it wasn’t a knockoff figure they sent me another legend free (think I got a Nova).

#$## I didn't even think of that, I don't know how much proof I have since I think my Girlfriend threw the box away and everything, I will try though

You guys make me feel old. When i got toys as a kid they never last and some would break instantly. My folk hqd to get me the same g1 optimus before they gave up. Toys may be more durable now but breaking is something is something that happens all the time

You can email through the “contact us” function on their website or call the 1-800 number that is on the bottom of any box that Hasbro sells

It was the same situation when I was a kid.  I probably went through 6 ToyBiz X-Men figures (you were supposed to put them in the freezer but when you took them out and played with them, they exploded).  The standards for customer service have changed as well as the business practices for these large companies.  It’s less “tough cookies” and more “one time courtesy”.

Are you sure you aren't interested at all in a pre-owned Brother Voodoo?  It hasn't exploded yet, so I doubt it ever will. Not on its own, anyway.

Will try for sure, but I won't be too sad if it's just a loss, thanks though

Hhaha well in the case of a pre-owned hasn't exploded Bro Voodoo sure , but only as long as It has been intact for longer then 1 year, I'm not sure when they are prone to explode, I mean i guess we didn't know there were secret action functions on Marvel Legends, Brother Voodoo dismembers himself into the astral plains

Yeah you don't like Voodoo that much you want to get rid of him, it's cool i appreciate it , if you do have the Aries Hulk BAF piece i'd take that , nah shipping costs for you would be annoying I live in Canada dude

I don't have that piece, but you'd be paying shipping costs if I sold it to you.

I finally got around to opening up my Hulk/White Vision/Ultron 3 pack I got on clearance at Target some years ago for 25 bucks. I was passing on them but was kinda interested in the Hulk even though I did not care for his new look. I got Hulk and Vision out with no problems but Ultron broke off one of his ears or whatever they are called. I wished I would have taken more of my time with him. I just look at him being battle damaged.

I did got shot in the eye by Venom in the Spiderman 3.75 inch line when I was opening him up. He had a spring loaded gun and it went off as I was getting him out. That hurt.

The left arm for my Caliban BaF has dried paint in the shoulder joint, so it won't rotate whatsoever. He's now stuck in a perpetual downswing, but I guess it works. I also had a Obsidian Cull Black Widow figure's left foot break off clean at the rocker ankle. Generally my Hasbro figures hold up and don't break, though.

Will the head that came with the Vintage series Vision fit on that body?
