timone317 and I think it might have to do with the added costs of including the stands and effect parts that might be contributing to the quality control issues on the last few figures released. Anyone else think this?
With all the problems with Saiyan Saga Vegeta do you guys think I should avoid getting him?
Even though we are seeing these flaws for Normal Vegeta it is still a great figure and I am glad to have him in my collection. BTW Nice to see this thread stickied as this is important information to anyone looking to buy Figuarts.
Ouch, I think yours might be the only one with that? Might be an actual defect, did you buy him new or loose? Wonder who else has a SS3 Goku, I think @aussiedcfan recently got one. I wonder if his has the same problem?
Just opened my SS3 Goku and luckily the hair seems to be holding though it does sag down a bit because of the weight but it isn't popping off the joint...at least not yet

Also forgot to mention, my SDCC Goku's neck articulation is ken. It came that way, so I assume it was either ken by a previous owner or it came that way from factory. However, unless someone has had the same issue I would assume I bought a dud. Anyone experience this too?
What do you mean by that? Like is the neck piece just sitting in there really loose, or does it just not move?
Also, how can I fix Vegeta's leg issue? It's really bothering me that I can't pose Vegeta's legs at all. I heard something about putting nail polish remover on the ball joints or something, does that work? What about isopropyl alcohol?
It's been said a few times that putting some clear nail polish or Pledge Future Shine should help hold the ball joint inside the thigh socket. A few people that have tried it have claimed it works great...I want to try it but I always forget to pick up Pledge and nail polish. They say you need to put whatever material you use into the socket and then immediately place the ball into the socket and move it around so nothing locks but I think it's much safer to apply a layer of polish/pledge, let it dry, and either make a second layer or put the ball back in.
