Hello ! New to the forums, and very excited, since I just got my first 1/55 scale Bandai Valkyrie. It's the 2001 reissue, I believe. Loveing it so far, think it's just amazing and the best toy ever made xD. One thing that really caught my attention with it, was the durability I read about. Which, so far, it's really brick solid xD However, I was wondering if anyone else ever experienced issues with the wings on the tail of the Fighter mode?
Basically what happens, is when I fold in the wings to transform it from Fighter Mode...They stick really badly, to the point where they actually bend lol. I've been a little afraid of transforming him because I just get this awful image of them snapping into pieces as I try to fold them over each other. Now I realize there's that little nob that they clip over to keep them in place in Fighter Mode, but this happens after I unclip them past that point. They are just really stiff.
Basically just wanted to know if anyone else experienced this, if it was normal (if not, is there a way to fix it?) and put my mind at ease so I won't have a heart attack when I try to transform him. Thanks again for any answers!
