I'd contact Tecmo directly about that. If they don't offer to send you a new figure for free, make a stink on Kotaku, Joystiq, Destructoid, and other gaming-centric websites to force their hand. If there are enough reports of this happening on those sites, that should get results.

A similar situation happened with Bioshock's Collector's Edition, where part of the Big Daddy figure (The drill, I think) was broken off, and anyone with a broken Big Daddy got a new one and a free artbook, so this has happened before. Yeah, it was a different company, but still...

I wonder if somebody redeemed that guys demo code , he flashed it the 25 digits are clearly visible. Man that would be hilarious if he found out the hard way.

That would be a rather impressive fail on his part.

3 out of 3... this isn't looking so good.

With those odds, there's a good chance a replacement from Gamestop would have the same issue. It's probably best, as already suggested, to contact Tecmo directly about this issue.

Just got mine. The swords weren't broken, so I lucked out there. However, it's more difficult to put together than it should be, since Ryu is supposed to be cutting the masked guy in half while simultaneously being stabbed just below the shoulder. You actually have to slide the masked guy's sword through the hole in Ryu while simultaneously fitting Ryu's sword into the masked guy's wound. This is harder than it should be.

Also, it's very difficult to get the figures on their pegs. I tried it with Ryu first and couldn't get it to work, so I very carefully reset and started over with the masked guy, and just barely got them both to fit without breaking anything.

It looks pretty cool, but this should have been assembled from the beginning and they should've used more durable materials so we wouldn't have to worry about this.

LMFAO is you pause it right you can see his code.... wow I hope he used it right after he made the video. Anyways my figure was fine thankfully, but my one foot pedestal is WAY off, and no it's not backwards! Only one of Ryu's feet can go in the hole
