My Thog mini's left arm/bundle of tentacles/appendage dips below the plain of his base by about a quarter inch so that he only stands flat if I put him at the edge of the table. I'm assuming this is different from normal. The left appendage appears to be a pretty rigid piece I'm assuming was factory assembled and probably just glued on at a bad angle. I think this is well beyond the ability of a simple hot/cold water fix.







As I'm not a minis painter/modifier (as much as I'd like the time to be), is there a simple fix for this? Should I just live with him always looking like he's popping a wheelie? Or should I just ask for a replacement?

I believe that's more or less standard. I'm going to try to fix mine now using hot water. I'll report back.

It's easily fixed. Just bend it at the elbow, not the shoulder.

Mine was the same way. You can certainly fix it with hot water. Dip it in for a couple of minutes, take it out and bend the tentacle-arm upwards until the base stays flat. Dip it in cold water while holding the arm in the new position.

Mine was the same way. Hot water bath and a little bending followed by cold water did the trick.

Honestly, i think this happened to everyone, every video & photo show this on thog,..
mine came the same way,..

Hot water should work, but I've never successfully achieved this (but I can't even make a grilled cheese sandwich, so it's probably just me),...

Alright, I'll try hot water and see how it goes.
