    My daughter was playing with her and loves to change the heads, i didnt realise she had the Goddess and snapped her head, will wait for a re-release to get another and glued the other head back on already.

    Hmm... maybe it's time that we did a comparison-count of the votes now, so we can get a good percentage of how many Goddesses that seems to be weakened at the molecular level.

    I suggest that we only compare the out of package ones, since many figures didn't actually break until after some time out of package.

    My Goddess is fine so far, but I don't have out on display. I have her bagged and hidden away in my MOTU storage box. I'm not going to chance it.

    My Goddess figure is just fine and she (and others) have taken a small tumble from where I originally had them displayed.

    My figure once had her leg pop out of her foot but it went right back in

    I made a bit of a percentage-calculation on the OPENED Goddesses, and this is what I came up with:

    Unbroken - 66%
    BROKEN - 33%

    This means that there is a good possibility that the amount of broken goddesses can amount to as much as 1/3 of the production-line! So you'll always have a 1 in 3 chance of getting a crumbling goddess if you buy from the first production-line.

    Consider this very carefully when you buy from the left-over stock that is currently available on Matty.

    NOTE: My calculations were made last week, when the numbers was slightly different.

    My Goddess is out of the package and in good shape. That's probably because I don't move her arround so much, and She's in a straight/normal pose.
    By what i've seen so far, many of them broke when they were being posed...

    Yeah, don't move her legs, and don't move her head, and it might be OK.
    Don't breathe on her either.
    In fact, don't look at her.
    Don't even point at her.

    I got lucky with my Goddess figure. I took her out of the package to pose. I was so enamored of her, I reposed her every few days for a couple of weeks, with no problems. But after I started hearing about other fans having issues iwth her breaking, I sort of stopped monkeying with her. She's still displayed though and doing fine. (Knocking on wood.)

    I got my shipment today and Goddess broke coming out of the package. As soon as I cut the rubber bands on the back and went to lift the figure, her left leg came off due to the hip joint cracking. I figred what the heck and moved the other leg which resulted in the hip blowing apart the rest of the way.

    She's displayed out of package, hasn't fallen down and isn't injured/broken in any way ... so far.

    It seems like my mathematics is still holding, to some degree. One third of the Goddesses are faulty, and WILL eventually crumble. But, there is 2/3 that may never crumble, I suppose we shall see in the future.

    Mattel... this figure SUCKS!! Your plastic, or your machines, are pieces of crap! Stop cheaping out on quality, because it will only cost you in the long-term!

    Looks like so far that a little more than 1 in 4 of these are broken either in or outside of the package. I have two, one loose now and the other MOC. The one I opened hasn't been a problem but those are bad odds and with that in mind prior to the recent sale Mattel shafted 1 out of 4 people that bought one of these with prior knowledge. That's unacceptable and should be reported to the BBB. Not like that'll change them. Seriously though, how can this be justified? You know there's a problem and you go with it anyway? Why not open the remaining stock, take out the weapons for a future figure or weapons pack and melt the translucent green plastic down and make some translucent dice out of them for somebody to gamble with in Vegas? It's the whole "life hands you lemons you make lemonaid" deal. And don't talk to me about logistics! You can't tell me there aren't 5 ten year olds who won't sit down with the remaining stock for $50 each and a pizza and rip thru these things. Just do it.

    I just checked my Goddess figures that I bought in 2009 and found that they are all defective, even though they are not broken yet. I've posted my report here:

    What? Are you saying the re-issues are broken too??? I just about to pose the question if anyone's re-issue is broken. I ordered it just to replace my old one. Damn. I'm getting a refund on at least one of them dammit.

    My original Goddess was fine until I read here almost a year ago that folks were having problems with theirs. I thought to myself "mine is fine", and went to mess with her a little. That's when her left hip disintegrated at the touch. I could have sworn I had touched it at least once before...

    My Goddess is loose and just fine.
    True, I don't pose her (I'm to scared), but she's fallen over many times, and is still in one piece.
    Fictional characters are just that. Fictional. They have no personality or free will of their own.
    Writers and editors mold them to their own wants and needs.
    All we as the audience and fans can do is pick and choose our favorite interpretation and ignore the rest.

    Hasn't broke as yet. But after all of this I got real scared she would. As long as it was "just" the interior crotch piece, I believe I could fix that and not have it be seen, which I could live with.

    But I'm glad to see it's overwhelmingly good in the poll currently.

    Naw, dude. When we say her hip "shatters" we're not joking. Seriously, I lifted her leg out to the side just a little, and her crotch is now in 5 pieces!

    You didn't order a reissue because there was no reissue.

    What you ordered was leftover stock from the same initial defective run.

    Mine has not broken, BUT I have not messed with her much. I just posed her in a basic pose on my shelf.
