    Grizzlor Arrival and Talkback Thread

    Yet again, I went to the gym and he arrived a few minutes after I got back. It's been my good luck charm almost every month!

    Here's the only decent picture I was able to take...

    Joints are fairly tight. Fur is soft like the original. New toy smell. And yep, his ax looks a lot like the 200X Ram Man ax. I'm wondering if it'll come with him too...

    Yep. About an hour away from the distribution center. They leave Ontario around midnight, get to my center around 2am, leave for delivery between 4 and 6am and I get them anywhere from 9:30am to 5:30pm.

    Wow. So you don't even get a tracking number/shipment notification until well after you've actually gotten the package/figure(s)?

    Got mine too! Unfortunately, one of his arm joints is very, very very loose. Gotta decide what to do about that.

    Hope so too! I pulled the figure out of the tray and the arm was left behind. I put some of that blue puddy you can use to hold up posters along the joint and it seems to have fixed it.

    Actually... it looks terrible when I turn the arm with the puddy in it. I guess I'll have to contact Matty for a replacement.

    This may be a cheesy solution, but you could try wrapping one of the smaller clear rubber bands around the peg before plugging it back into the arm.

    Or try a hairdryer on both pieces, plug it in, and see if the fit is tighter once it cools.

    It stinks to have to get a replacement, but it looks like yours would arrive pretty quickly. That's cool at least.

    Got mine today as well. Very nice figure! No problems with mine. Nice paint apps and good joints! His fur is not coming off like in Pixel Dan's review either. Later!

    I tried the hairdryer but I couldn't reshape it correctly, but you're right about the rubber bands - it's nice and tight AND invisible. Thanks FakeEyes22!

    Awesome! Glad to help!
    That's the common ankle and neck solution, but I had tried it on Moss Man's wrist. There's a thread where people suggest superglues and floor wax, but that seems risky for the furry guys.

    I suppose you could still look into a replacement while enjoying a 2 armed Grizzlor in the meantime.

    Actually, I get the e-mail with the tracking number somewhere around midnight. The next day it arrives. It's like one giant spy game.

    And one of my Grizzlor's hips is a little loose, as if it was well oiled. I might get a Q Tip and get any excess out. Other than that, he sheds like Pixel Dan said, but over all, he's very cool.

    HOLY CR@P! I just saw the one with the arm that fell off! YIKES!

    I hope we don't start seeing quality issues again. But there hasn't been a figure yet that hasn't had any from all the reports on here

    So far I have been lucky so I guess I will just wait and see and hope for the best

    Got my Master of Pubes today.
    I came back from work and a few minutes later the UPS guy rang the door bell.
    I didn't have the money to pay custom fees. So I was bummed to wait another day. But the UPS guy was kind enough to drive to the next ATM and back home
    Thx UPS guy, you rock.

    Grizzlor is awesome, tight joints, very fury, loaded with accessories and mine doesn't shed at all.

    Upon further inspection (Translation: when I tried to stand him up) I'm starting to think mine has two of the same shin/foot or something. His thighs and knees/calves are correct, and I've been staring at his feet/boots for a long time trying to see if I can see if anything's off, and I can't quite tell but one leg does kinda curve out to the side more than it should. The figure the reviewer on AFP got had his shins switched, so when I get home tonight I'm gonna compare mine to his (he took before and after pics) and see if I can make some more sense out of it.

    Other than that, Grizzlor is LOADS of fun!

    If the arm is loose, put some superglue on the peg and leave it to dry then put the arm back together. The glue dries pretty clear so wont show up and it thickens the join to make it tighter.

    Just got mine this morning. Good figure. The loin cloth is ridiculous, I hate it. I could barely get it on him, and then I just thought it looked really bad.

    Does grizzlor also have "GRAYSKULL" on the bottom of his white mailer, like Roboto?
