I despise going to the Post Office so much that I will sometimes keep dolls with flaws. Some things can be overlooked. When I opened my Triad Alpha and I saw her rough left elbow, I thought to myself "I can live with that."
Then, I saw the split on the right side of her neck, and I was rather irritated. "Oh well," I thought, "At least she has long hair." I was actually going to try to overlook that. You just don't understand how much I despise going to the Post Office.
I was posing her and having a jolly good time, until it came time to sit her down. Her left leg just popped right off. "Okay..." I said to myself, "she has modular limbs. She comes apart. Just pop the thing back on." I popped her leg back on and it popped right back off again. The leg will not stay on. I have in my possession an ACTION FIGURE that can not sit down! And THAT I cannot bear. Sheesh, even my Otaku can sit down without falling apart!
So I will be making a trip to the Post Office soon so that I can return this doll. I am not happy.
But hey, other than that, she's a great figure. Here she is still in her package.
And here she is removed from her packaging. She stands quite well.
Here's a close-up. I like her features and her hair.
Here she is with other Triad Alphas. My other Alphas are great, by the way. I have put them through rigorous posing, and have not had a problem with limbs that would not stay on. And they are some of the best posers that I have. I was really looking forward to having this new figure in my collection. I was happy that she had a different face. I was thrilled that they did not give her the hideous orange hair like the promo photos. I was thinking about all the different ways that I would pose her. But noooooooo, she can't do much more than just stand there posing her upper body in different ways.
Here are all of my Triad ladies.
Hopefully I can get a refund or a replacement. Posing is on hold until then.
I fell like I should open another doll now since this one was a disappointment. I'll open another one, but not today.
