View Full Version : Rumor: ASinestro figure that doesn't arrive broken
Seriously, what kind of cheap plastic is this model made of? I have seen 4 so far, and 3 had damage.
i got mine in an almost mint condition
All 12 that have gone through the store I hang out at have been perfectly fine.
I have purchased two of them and neither had any damage... maybe the shippers where rough on some of the production run?
I thought mine was fine, but after looking at it over, one of the lightning bolts in the quiver has half broken off from the get go. Still its a minor thing so im not complaining.... much
I pulled my Sinestro out of the package as gently as I could, but the plastic just clung around the quiver and it came off of his hip. I had to super glue it back on, but it doesn't look too bad. They just made him really fragile and ya gotta treat him like gold so he doesn't break.
I've bought 2 so far and both started off in mint condition.
But they are quite fragile, and the only safe way to transport them is with the original packaging IMO.
the 1st one I bought (which I planned on opening up any ways) fell off a counter (####ed cats!!!! ):mad: ) and broke REAL easy like.
I was extremely bummed, which was stupid admittedly, but it was the excuse I needed to crack that sucker open!
Overall I'm extremely satisfied with ol Sinestro.
Play him all the time!
Man did he get his butt handed to him by the FF!
I pulled mine out, no worries. He fell off my bed onto the floor, and didn't break...maybe I got the super version or something...
mine broke right when i opened it. I touched (lightly i might add) the quiver and it fell right off. i felt extremely ripped off for paying 20 bucks.
I bought 1 at my local shop and had 2 more shipped to me. No problems on any of them.
My Sinestro was fine when i took it out of the box, but then he felt the wrath of my dog's Hypersonic Tail Attack! Long story short, I superglued the bolts and one side of the helmet in place again and now he's good as new. (poor Sinestro still won't go in the same room as my dog though.)
I pulled mine out in the store, and the quiver broke even before we had it out of the plastic. The poor store owner was alternately mortified, furious, and apologetic. I glued it without any problems, just like I glued my Sentinel back onto his base. Titans can be touchy!
I can confirm this rumor! Not only did I get one unbroken, I've had it since it was released and he is still in one piece!
I have yet to see a broken one.
My sinestro is Strong and Long. Brother routinely travels in my book bag with books and all types of junk. Been dropped on all types of floors. And still is in perfect shape. I just tried prying the quiver off of him and cant.
Dont hate the game, hate the player
Ever try to take one apart to get at the sinestro inside? its very difficult. I broke the quiver off attempting this. But eventually i got in and took him out. I used a small amount of crazy glue to fix him and you can't even tell. I followed someones hint to make a small stand in front of the fig to hold sinestro. looks cool:devious:
Have any pics or websites for advice on this. I wanted to do it but haven't got a second one yet
