....hell happened to my Nexu!?
I went today to just look at it, and this is literally one of the first times I've picked this figure up since I bought it. It's sat upon my shelf with the other 2 Arena beasts since purchasing. I was gonna test the sounds since I hadn't removed the batteries and what not.
Well, what do I find? My Nexu has CRACKED in several areas along the bellie... Not just one small crack, I'm talking FULL cracks to the point the body is separating.
I unscrew the battery compartment and see the spring inside the battery slot is forcing the body apart in the back, but it doesn't explain why there's cracks at the leg joints as well that are completely separating.
I've not done ANY playing with this figure at all. It was basically bought and set upon a shelf, and this if the first real "handling" it's seen in a long time. Needless to say I'm royally pi$$ed off right now at Hasbro.
Now I'm out my Nexu and this is unfortunate as that figure has completely dried up in my area.
And of course, god knows Hasbro wouldn't replace this if asked.
It's a shame because I really liked this figure at one point, but now my opinion is 10x lower... There's no excuse for a toy crumbling before your eyes. What's really sad is that it happened just from sitting on my stand...
No rough play (no play at all), no handling, no extreme temperatures, no direct sunlight... Nothing. And the toy just fell apart...
What a piece of junk!
It makes me wonder if this is an isolated incident or if others have experienced this? Hmmmmm....
