QC issues with Play arts Kai

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

For my birthday my wife bought me a Play arts Kai Movie Trilogy Batman figure. I was super stoked because it was my first Play arts figure and I loved the movie armored look. I took it out of the package and I was blown away with the sheer awesomeness of the Batman figure. The details are amazing and the articulation was all I could imagine it could be. There are flaws for sure with the figure, the proportions were off. The torso is too short while the legs too long and the floating crotch piece moves up most of the time adding to the dis-portionate look. But being a Batman fan I loved the figure despite it's flaws until.....the arm fell off. I wasn't even handling the figure roughly or putting it into a crazy pose. The arm just literally fell off at the bicep joint. I am unfamiliar with the inner workings of the Play arts Kai figures but I think the bicep joint wasn't broken it was just made poorly. It took me all morning to fix it and I was close to just super gluing it back on (something I NEVER do) because I hate to lose any piece of articulation with any figure. But after a few attempts and techniques I finally fixed it with a marvel legends joint and it is fairly tight and moves well. Although the other arm is tighter at the bicep, the arm part at the shoulder is really loose. The figure was brand new and was never opened so I can't blame it on the previous owner. I was wondering if anyone else has had any problems with Play arts Kai figures? I don't think this will deter me from buying more Play arts figures but it really gives me reason to pause the next time I do.
