    Is your GODDESS figure broken?

    There has been discussion about the QC (or in some cases, lack thereof) of this fan favorite. This is probably the best way to see how people are faring with this action figure. So let's be direct about it.

    Is your Goddess action figure now broken, or has it held up just fine?

    Both of mine broke (2)... from trying to move her legs SLIGHTLY. In both cases, the pelvis piece, NOT the legs (ahem, TG), crumbled into several pieces. The pelvis is clear-plastic painted green.

    So far both my MOC and loose Goddess have avoided the dreaded transparent plastic crumbling disease ... so far!

    I barely dare look at my Goddess figure ... which is a pity cos I love her so much.

    Piece of my loose Goddess' neck broke off (but is now glued back on). My MOC one seems to be intact, but who knows, what might happen, if ever removed from the package.

    My loose Goddess (she's such a party animal) is still doing fine even after falling down twice from my desk. I hope it stays that way.

    Mine did break. I was attempting to do the pose Teela has on the back on the card and the crotch piece shattered. I wasn't even forcing it. Now I have the leg propped in place, but yeah, she's completely broken.

    Mine's out of the pack, and fine - for now. I don't pose her much. She's got a super-bobble-head thing happening, so I leave her alone for the most part. Hopefully she stays fine.

    So far, so good, though I've made sure to separate her from the rest of my figures in case my nephew ever decides to play with her when I'm not looking.

    Out of package, played with, and currently one of my few displayed figures. She's fallen at least once or twice now, and she's been fine.

    My Goddess was broken, but through some clever parts swapping with an extra Teela (Thank you for the crotch, Warrior Goddess!), she is back in action and better than ever before-fully poseable and awesome!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    The pelvis of my Goddess crumbled after standing in a storage box for 6mths untouched. I have since fixed her leg in place with Liquid Nails Epoxy and while it substantially limits her movement/poseability - she is able to stand and be displayed.

    There seriously needs to be a release of the green goddess. I never got one & the first release had to many problems.

    I left mine MOC as I do with most of my MOTUC stuff. The Goddess is one that I will NEVER open for a fact though. Simply because I'm just not very interested in the character and I don't want to break it.

    My Goddess figure stands in the 2nd floor tower of castle Grayskull, and there she will stay. I don't want to have a broken figure on my hands!

    Mine broke when I (for some reason) took off her head when I first got her. Actually, she broke when I was trying to put the head back on. It was in the back of the neck, and I glued it, and it doesn't show, so I'm not too irritated by it (any more).

    Actually, I'd kind of forgotten she was broken until I saw this thread ...

    I couldn't vote, because my option would be;
    "My Goddess figure is out of the packaging and just fine for now..."
    This may change at any moment seeing how she can just fall apart...

    When I first got her, the head was extremely wobbly,
    so I ripped off her head and tied a rubber band around her neck and
    firmly pressed the head back on.
    She was fine and didn't break anything.

    She also survived a 11 hour plane flight where she was loose in a ziplock bag pressing tightly
    against other loose MOTUC figures in a fully packed backpack as carry-on luggage.

    I barely posed her though.
    I like her standing up straight with one arm holding her staff.
    She stands all the way in the back of my display just in case,
    so she can't fall off the shelf.

    She's not broken, but her head is so loose that I get nervous just touching her. She is one figure that hasn't shelf dived. Not sure what that would do to her if she did.

    My Goddess figure is loose, and broken.

    Her pelvis is gone, but there is enough of it left, that her legs can be put back in to place so that she can atleast stand up.

    But I can't pose her, or even touch her without her legs falling off.

    Rediculous.
