    Luckily my Spikor is fine. Don't think I would have cared too much if he was cockeyed though.

    Both of mine had lazy eyes. Luckily I was able to touch them up with paint and you can't tell now.

    Mine has good eyes as well. However, his right arm is so hard to move. Has anyone had an arm break off yet? I am scared that it will happen. I just sent a Vikor back cuz his leg broke off when I tried to move it.

    The right arm seems to be a common problem. Just heat it up with a hairdryer and then move it around, it should be fine.

    My Spikor arrived with one eye a little 'off' too.
    Luckily with this figure having solid black pupils, it's any easy fix for me to do.

    Mine was fine, but my friend who ordered our subs had one Spikor missing (4 arrived, instead of 5)!!

    Hopefully he can get the 5th one sent out. Given that it took almost a month for our figures to arrive (we're in Australia), I'm hoping those with "defective" eyes didn't snap up all the replacement stock.

    Yeah, my Spikor ended up a bit google-eyed as well; will probably repaint his eyes so that he has more "focus".

    Wandering eyes are never a good trait for a blacksmith !

    Toyguru replied to my question about this issue. I'll be taking his advice and reaching out to customer service for another replacement. Fingers crossed!

    Received my two... one was fine, the other was slightly off, but not really bad at all.

    That said, one of mine had a screwed up leg right where the boot cut is it sticks out more and it won't articulate.

    I got lucky with mine. He has perfect eyes. Definitely one of my favorites this year. Now my TMNTC Donatello figure....he has some pretty screwed up eyes.

    Finally found a replacement with perfect eyes! Also interesting to see the results from the Spikor eye poll I put up. Out of 50 Spikor figures, a third of them are wonky-eyed.

    Mine are off a little bit, but the deviation is so slight that I probably wouldn't have spotted it if it wasn't such a throughly discussed topic here. It's so minor on mine that whether or not you can spot it actually seems to depend on what angle you view it at - if you look at him from slightly to the side or slightly above (say, about 15 degrees or more in either case), I can't pick up that there's anything wrong with mine.

    I finally got to open my Spikor yesterday and I was holding by breath as I opened the mailer but thankfully his eyes are perfect.
