    I guess I'm one of the lucky ones that doesn't have a horror story about her. I've had her for a year and a half, in a room with horrible temperature control, and one trip moving to a new apartment, and she's barely leaning. If it comes down to it, I may drill a little hole into her dress and through the pegs and add some small metal rods, but I think I have at least another year before it comes to that. It looks like the pegs just aren't deep enough and the holes are getting a little loose, so it may even be enough to just use some classic liquid nails construction glue to secure her nice and flat onto the pegs and base. I'm never selling her, so I don't have to worry about fixing her up a little as long as the improvements aren't visible.

    I'm also a little surprised at the price increase. I got her for $150 (and free shipping by tricking the system) from Rightstuf, and now she's listed as $200 (and obviously out of print).

    As someone who got a support rod for her, I can testify that it's really not an end-of-the-world thing. There's recommendations below in the comment section of companies you can commission one from with the specific length required. All you gotta do is put a foam pad on the end and shove it up her butt. It doesn't take a particular knack for craftsmanship.

    However, as a perfectionist myself, I do think it's a rather major problem. Sure she looks absolutely freaking fantastic still and am still happy to own her, but she'd look a lot better without the support, and I'd be happier if she didn't need it. I also recognize that some people may take issue with spending over $200 on a figure and then be required to spend more to get her to stay the hell still.

    In layman's terms: Mom? Dad? Stop fighting ;-;

    LivingDaylight (10 months ago) #17013036you are kidding, right? the figure was made because of movie, so you can wait for other scales of this Homura variant forever.
    and never get one.
    There's a new sequel movie coming and most likely new devil homura scale. Also there's already alternatives for this scale. The point was this scale has a major flaw, how did you manage to miss the point in my post completely?

    Stalgonoff (11 months ago) #16288741"However, she is very simple to fix on your own and depending on your artistic merits you could make a pretty cool stand for her."Nothing is more satisfying than dropping a 200€ on scale, realising it has a major flaw and then having to build a support pillar so that it doesn't break.

    Stalgonoff (11 months ago) #16288741"I don't see the point in casting it aside because it is not perfect although I hope that companies learn from it and make future models with better anti-lean measures."Everything i said on my last comment was my opinion/suggestion. There's 2k people who has this figure wishlisted, my point was to warn them that maybe it's better to wait for other homura devil scales or just not buy this one unless you have some skills to build a support for her. I'm sure there's many among those 2k people who would like to know what theyre getting before buying her.

    I certainly agree that she could have been engineered better. They could have had a few other points of contact to distribute the weight without sacrificing much aesthetically. However, she is very simple to fix on your own and depending on your artistic merits you could make a pretty cool stand for her. My current fix was dirt cheap and while it doesn't look the best you can't really see it from where she's displayed. She looks amazing and has very few other flaws (mine has a few very small blemishes which don't bother me) and she looks even better side by side with ITEM #98665.
    I don't see the point in casting it aside because it is not perfect although I hope that companies learn from it and make future models with better anti-lean measures.
