    Yeah. It ____ing annoys me that this is even an issue.... AGAIN! I had high hopes of displaying Reeve next to Keaton too. But I'll be damned if I'm gonna spend even a penny on another leaky rubber figure. And buying it now, I know I'd be insufferable, checking it daily and just wondering when it's going to start. I'd much rather wind up paying double for a guarantee later on. I can justify that.

    Here's the asymmetrical abs sculpt I mentioned earlier:




    Received mine 10 hours ago and found no oils. I took off the paper wrap around the belt to make it contact directly on the suit. After coming back from school in 10 hours, I found a little gooey substance left on the suit. I believe it's from the glue behind the belt. Rorywan mentioned the oils still appear after taking the belt off. I respect what he said, but for my case I think it's from the belt.

    Will try Maglors' method and will update here.

    Honestly nam (and void), after getting this in hand i'm not too worried about any leaking issue. This is a very different rubber than used on the other problem figures. It almost feels like vinyl. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say the few instances of oil like substance presented in this thread are not a rotting/break down scenario and i would recommend ordering it with full confidence to a friend.

    Just had to throw that out there...

    I appreciate that. But it's just too soon to tell anything right now.

    Ayumiwill, please fix your gauntlets... I'm sure you were just taking a pic and not focusing on them, but they should always be lined up with the back of the hands, since in reality they are one full piece, not two parts like the figure.

    I'm tired, so I apologize for being a ____.

    Again, it's fine and dandy and all, but it's way too soon to know anything.

    You guys will have plenty of time to get this at a decent price, take your time...just wanted to state my thought on the matter after having it in hand next to dx2 @ bbv2.
