    Granamyr QC issues? Pics or Videos only please

    I'd be happy to pass info on Granamyr QC issues to the right folks, but like always, I need pics. (and we're talking hundreds, not 10 or 20 people). If you have images please post in this thread. Not a place for discussion, just straight photo evidence would help please.

    Thanks!

    How do I take a pic of the tail not staying on or the arm that keeps falling off that will show you guys that it is a problem and not just not assembled?

    The right arm would not click into place on mine. Unfortunately I don't have pics because I have already taken mine apart, used a large screw driver to turn the socket that was stuck, heated up the 4 clips it plugs into and pushed them more inward, applied a touch of superglue to the clips where it touches the plug, and put it back together.

    Granamyr's LEFT ARM keeps falling off when I move it up or down. NOT something I can take a picture of, but well worth noting.

    Tail socket. Keep in mind, this is how it was when it came out of the box. I also have a bobble head issue from the neck peg being improperly seated in the upper torso, making it impossible for the head to properly seat. Kind of hard to take a picture of that one.

    Guys, this doesn't help. I need photos (or videos) showing problems. Mods, if you can remove the discussion that will help. What I need is a thread of straight "evidence" I can pass along. A thread of discussions will be too distracting. Please move the discussion elsewhere and use this thread for photos and or video only.

    Please keep this thread to videos or photos only. There are other Granamyr threads to discuss the quality control issues. Thanks.

    Hi Scott, it is the square arm peg that is the problem. When you insert it the clips bend away and dont spring back to hold the arm in. I tried to push them back in manually with a screwdriver after "carefully" pulling the torso apart but this only made the joint very loose so his arm wil not stay up now and still falls out.

    My Granamyr has a glue like paint substance running all the way down its torso. I have already contacted DR for a replacement.

    Two of the same right shoulder piece, although each has the correct pegs to fit into the torso. I requested a replacement.

    Broken tail assembly port. Click on to enlarge. Hairline crack can be seen across a significant portion of the area.

    You can see in this file image when enlarged that one of the clips that holds in this right arm peg is broken off. The other three hold the arm on very well but if I were to bend the arm just right it would come right out because of the absence of the peg. Additionally, the clips that are there do not fit under the head of the peg as you might expect, they merely "hug" it.

    Below are some pics of the same thing...Unfortunately it's difficult to see but you can see stress on the plastic when you have it right in front of you. Its apparent to me that someone test fitted pieces and then removed them breaking pieces as they went.

    The peg above the stomach piece is crooked on mine so Granny's neck piece doesn't sit straight on, he is always turned. Also makes his scale/fin things not line up on the back. I can't get the piece back off to take a picture of the peg.
