That's unfortunate Scream Man. I hate figures breaking right out of the box.

I received mine from Paul last week & have had no troubles with any of them.

So Neca is taking over Street Figher from now on? I keep saying that but I don't even know where (or if) I heard it!! scratch

yeah they have.

I should also be clear; Im not plaming Paul at all!

Zangief seems to be fine.

Ditto on mine - Honda's left leg balljoint is stuck and will clearly break if I try to move it, and Dhalsim's interchangeable limbs are insta-break. I'm going to contact SOTA to see if there are replacements, but I doubt it. Mysteriously, Zangief is perfect for me as well.

I have read many stores like this on the spawn.com messageboards. I wouldn't hold you breath on any of these being of any good quality. It's a shame indeed and hurts the toy retailers more than anyone else.

No mention of breakage, but the latest review on OAFE also paints a rather bleak future for the "new" SOTA.

These dont feel like the old Sota figures. they feel more...brittle almost. trhe plastic feels different.

They LOOK great. All 3 of mine have great paintjobs.

how much has the quality of figures been tied to the price of oil? now that oil price is dropping do you think we'll see an increase in the quality of figures?

it's not just the plastic. SOTA has had to change to a new factory.

But I agree, the Zangief I have had rather loose joints. My Sagat can still hold a pose and he was the first SF i bought. I've had to do the superglue for Zangief's hips already. Although I suspect it's because of his large torso.

I guess I must have been lucky with mine so far.
My 3 have been good, only Hondas torso was a bit tight but with some carefull work its all good.

Over the years I haven't have a breakage since Sodom. But now it's getting to me since the one Blue Dhalsim I got from CSC(USA) snapped at his left legs. Grrr...Love my zangiefs!

nah, i dont think im game. based on how it feels, cold might work better, to stiffen and seperate the joints, but Im just goignt o leave it.

having them all together makes me really bummed that i never fot Bison or Balrog. With those 2, Id have all the original cast now, and all the special edition cast except Dee Jay.

Also, random question: does anyone have the head for Ken, that they maybe no longer want? I have the alpha head witht he long hair, but not the normal....
