  • Mine came two days ago, this was wrong too, I thought it was just my problem, instead I see that we are in the same boat, desperate for a figure of almost 300 euros, in Italy.

    Just an update on the leaning. I ended up putting a big stack of old cards under the front left side of the figure (same side as the lean) to get the illusion of her being center, after many failed attempts to heat and reshape. About once a week, I took a little chunk of the cards out from the stack and it had allowed her to naturally start leaning back to her original (straight) position. Since I last posted, I am proud to say she has been standing up straight with no cards for 1 whole week, which is already a record since she arrived lmao. With Fall and Winter coming, maybe she will be alright for awhile.

    It saddens me to hear of numerous people experiencing leaning. Although mine is not having any such issues, I want to share with everyone a potential solution that worked for another figure I own:
    My FOTS Hana figure came with a completely useless and non-functional display method, so I bought this metal support stand which worked like a charm. However, that stand is FAR too short for this Devilman Lady figure. Because she stands so tall with her waist forward, one would need to find a much taller stand, say around 14" tall to the waist, and bend the support wires forward to reach her waist from behind. The beauty of this concept is that you could set her and her pedestal atop the support stand's base to support the stand itself.

    I did a quick search, and this is the one I would try first. Although I would try to find one with a smaller base diameter (7" is bit too large), it seems to have just the right height to allow it to be bent forward to her waist. Just know that it likely won't work right out of the box... the stand's wires will require some manual and creative bending to find the best place to support her.

    Again, this is just an idea, but it is what I would try first if mine started leaning. Having to keep her stored away in her box due to leaning issues would NEVER be an option for me. She's such a marvel to behold, and I want others to appreciate her as well!

    lumspaceinvaderhace 1 año#64224958Has anyone who owns her had problems with her leaning yet?? I'm gonna post some comparison photos of when I first got her vs now because it's very frustrating. Going to try to hit her with some heat and position her back soon.

    Came to the MFC comment section to see if anyone else was having this issue too. I have the alternate colour version, and noticed today she was leaning on one of my other figures today.

    Definitely a leaner this one :(. Big shame. Will have to rig some kind of stand that I'm happy with at some point, and fix the lean. For now, she's relying on Lucidique to keep her upright.

    Instructions did say to correct her legs if they bent in the box, but didn't expect her to lean this quickly. Guess she doesn't have metal supports in her legs... she needs them!

    FDracohace 1 año#65510272Same here, i'm trying to bring her back to the original position day by day, waiting for Autumn and colder climate.

    lumspaceinvaderhace 1 año#64327179It might be. I actually did manage to get her upright with some heat for a bit, but today I came back home and noticed her leaning again. I am going to give it another try closer to her ankles (I focused on calves last time) and I guess.. wait and see! Thanks for the response.
    I hope it works out! If she continues to lean, I suggest you share some photos, and maybe I or others who own her can provide some suggestions.

    I still can't get over how awesome she is. I look at how few ordered her, though, and I have mixed thoughts. On one hand, it makes her even more special knowing I'm one of very few who have her on display. On the other hand, I imagine Orca Toys didn't turn much of a profit, if any, on this production, and I fear that companies may shy away from deciding to produce similar figures in the future. I just find it hard to believe that there's so little interest in such beautifully grotesque monstergirl-themed figures like her.

    It makes me wonder if sneaking that watch of the anime movie Wicked City when I was really young played a role in developing my interest in such character designs or if I just naturally gravitated towards them.

    IceFanghace 1 año#64230250No, she hasn't had any leaning problems for me. In fact, she's surprisingly well balanced and stable given how thin her legs are. Her legs just above her ankle bracelets are SOOO thin... Do you think that area is the source of the leaning on yours? If so, the instructions say to heat up that area and carefully adjust.
