Figure Complaints: My Figure Broke...

Discussion in 'Action Figures' started by Fozzie Bear, Dec 10, 2003.

    Well, if you wanna get rully picky... TRU has/had both S1 and S2 figures in their stores before deciding to jump off board. The S4 figures have made an appearance at the Times Square TRU store in NYC, but only that series.
    And by WiGgY's own admission, the deal for TRU to pick up the line again beginning with S7 is only "almost" 100% done but it isn't "fully" 100% done.
    Not looking it as seeing the glass half empty... it's more of seeing it as that we'll have what we have when we have it.
    Hope this helps and happy holidays.

    Thanks for the info.
    There were just 3 or 4 different regular figures, The Swedish chef's kitchen, and a big beaker there. That's it, I want to see if anywhere else sells them and has more, different selection.

    Is this a good deal?

    Well, you could always start by picking up the figures you saw at your local Target, Slim pickings as they may be, at least it's a start. So go ahead and pick up that Swedish Kitchen and other figures to get your collection going. That is, of course, if you rully want to collect these figures. I mean, it's your decision after all.
    Hope this helps and let us know how it goes with your collection.

    No, not really. Go to www.beanstoys.com and order a full set of series 1. Much cheaper that way.

    Never mind, looks like they soldout. But you can find series 4, 5, and 6 along with the playsets and megas. Start with the kitchen. Trust me, if you decide you don't want the whole line, at least you'll have the best of them all.

    I'll have to check them out. I really like the kitchen so I probably will start wih it.

    Wait a Minnit!!!!

    I thought this post was about BROKEN figs, not PROSPECTIVE figs!!! What's up with that!?!?! Just kidding... To each their own...
    And just how are you guys (dmx and jedi) using this board as a chat room?? I have SO tried to do that and failed... My timing must be off or something. HAHAHA!!!

    So does anyone have any actual complaints???

    here's my concern/ question...
    WITH the Swedish kitchen, what have you folks used for paper towels on the paper towel roll at the end of the "island" (right side as you look at it)?? I have tried several unconvincing methods up to and including carefully sliced toilet paper and then rolled it up... It looked best, but still not perfect.. Any advice???

    Things just get a little off topic sometimes, not intensional. I don't have any complaints because I haven't got any figures yet.
    I'm looking forward to getting the kitchen. I didn't know you had to provide your own paper towels!

    It's a towel rack for the towel the set comes with. I thought iit was obvious

    To each their own...

    Yeah, it was obious. Although not all of us here are considered Einsteins, I think we can figure that out. I use the towel as a display setting for Chef's fantastically prepared meals, or to set up a cooling area. So the paper towels were an after thought to BARELY modernize this set. Paper towels are a pretty big convenience in the kitchen, which I thought was obvious.

    Wait! You mean the square piece of cloth that came with the playset was a towel?!? Hmmm, thought it was a napkin, and as such I've either folded it and stored it in the rolling cabinets below the back counter or had it placed below the Chef in my display photos. You can find them at my Yahoo Album, LMK if you want an invite.
    Hope this helps and have a good day.

    It's a towel, I have it hanging on the towel rack on the end of the island.

    BTW, what's that white plastic thing and the deal with the pancakes and weenies? (J/K!!) LOL!

    Shame On Me!!!

    Sorry DMX, I forgot to support you in your quest for muppet love. Good luck finding all those you want to find man. Even though it's a little late for some cahracters, there is hope since you only have the nekkid options for Rowlf and Sam Eagle coming soon. NOt that the current versions are bad or anything, but I prefer my muppets au natural` :)
    And yeah, that kitchen set is about the best toy playset ever constructed by man or beast. I have heard not a single complaint EVER about that thing.

    Thanks, I hope to find most of them. Big news for me though, I went to Target today and braved the crowds to get the Swedish Kitchen. After a half an hour of unpackaging it, I got it set up and I took a pic of it. Click here to see it. I have one queestion I got this white accessory thing and I don't know what it is or what it's for. It came in the little cardboard box behind the island. It is squarish with a cut in the side of it. Does anybody know what it's for?? :confused:

    Good to know that we've got one more collector on board, and congrats on picking up the Kitchen playset DMX!

    BTW: That's got to be the single most asked question concerning the playset. Basically, the little white squarish piece you're talking about is an ice tray and can be placed inside the freezer.
    Hope this helps and happy hunting and happy holidays!

    I've had problems with the first three of the playsets, just through children playing with them (which is usually the intent of toys, no?). With the Muppet Lab playset, one of the hoses on the back of the torture rack broke off. I was able to glue it, but it is fragile now. The Animal drum set had problems with the cymbal boom stands, with the bottom portion separating from the top. Again, glue fixed it, but also it is fragile. Finally, the Kitchen had problems with the little pegs breaking off in an attempt to take off the items. Yeah, I glued them and yes, they are fragile. I love these toys, but wish that Palisades had some kid-testing to see where or how they could improve. I just got the Pigs in Space set, and am hoping that no parts are "snapable." So far, it seems pretty sturdy.

    Anyone else had problems with these sets?
