So I got Crimson Dynamo, and right out of the box, I thought he was as good as a Revoltech, and probably bette-oh, his left knee is broken. Out of the box. The joint still works, but still, it’s broken. Might as well try to fix it with super glue, I know there’s a chance the glue will melt the plastic, but migh…. yup, melted the plastic, luckily, I only applied a little. And the joint still works perfectly fine, as evidenced by the pics that are soon to follow, but I’m taking Crimson Dynamo back to the store when I have the chance.
Unfortunately, the return policy is rather strict, and I have to go out of town for the weekend. Hopefully, the supervisor guy will be a reasonable chap. Also, this was the only Crimson Dynamo on the shelves. I’m not interested in anything else, except maybe Warmachine, which was not available when I bought Crimson here.
Worst case, I keep this guy, since he’s still good, and then maybe I’ll wait for that store to have an Ironman II toy I like, then buy that toy and return CD here with that receipt. Best case is that they get new Crimson Dynamos over the weekend and I can make a trade. In a worse than worst case, I’ll buy some Tamiya putty I spotted the other day and try to sculpt a fix in. It’ll be my first time doing something like that. For colors, I figure I’ll just use black, as no way in heck will I succeed in emulating that WONDERFUL glossy crimson wine.
Now, despite the obviously damaged knee, CD’s knee is still functional, as can be seen here:
