i1/7 Alter Asuka - Hand doesn't reach her hat?n/a

So today my Alter Asuka arrived item #186848. I tried to pose her with her hat and her arm/hand reaching after her hat, but I can't get her hand to even slightly touch it. The manual seems to say that I should wiggle her arm part to make it a bit looser, but when I do that, the joints of her arm part are visible and I don't think it's supposed to be like that... (But I'm not so sure about that, can someone help me with this, please?)

Hawthourne (1 year ago) #12654736Considered this too, after a while :'D I heated the arm part with a hair dryer for 7 or 8 seconds, bending it and let it cool down under cold water. Now her hand stays on her hat, thank you very much :>

I'm glad it worked!

I'd try gently heating it and bending it into place, then holding it there as you run it under cool water.

Well some pictures can help but according to your description, I think it can be some kind of defect. When come out of their molds, some parts of the figure could be deformed, while some of them can be obvious even make the parts unusable, but others hardly noticeable alone even not that obvious after putting up together with other parts. Yours can be one of those.
