Over the weekend, Fresh Monkey Fiction sent out a pair of notifications regarding their Larry Hama Action Figure!
The messages, sent to backers of the Larry figure, brought good and somewhat bad news (not too bad though, promise!). Here’s the TL/DR version – Larry’s waist is a bit stiff, so you’ll want to give him a 3-minute hot water bath to loosen up the joint before twisting his waist.
To whet your appetite, a collection of images of Larry were included as well. Both full length updates are below for your reading pleasure. Let’s get to it!
We did get a few figures shipped to us via FedEx. We have opened a few figures and they look great, we’ll post some images shortly. The interchangeable hands are a great addition and really add some extra functionality to the figure.
There is an issue we the waist on the figure that we sadly cannot resolve and wanted to highlight this to all backers. The waist cannot turn/rotate more than 3-5 degrees, this was a manufacturing issue that was a result of all the issues with Tiandeng Liu and the parts that were recovered from his factory. All the other elements of the figure function as intended but please do not force or turn the waist more than 3-5 degrees on each side. If you do this the pin that holds the waist to the torso will snap.
Many of you are planning on keeping the figure carded for display but we know many of you are intending to remove the figure from it’s plastic prison and display your figure with other 1/18th figures. For those folks we know this is not ideal, we are very disappointed and upset that we have to deliver this news, but we hope the extra set of hands make up for it in some small way. As we mentioned, all the other other elements of the figure function as intended so there are still many ways you can display your figure.
This just adds one more thing to the list of many obstacles that we’ve had to overcome to finally get this figure out the door and delivered to you.
