I purchased this expansion after participating in a tournament this Saturday. I opened it and I was generally pleased. However, I noticed when playing that my Pandakaï cardboard piece slides off the standee much easier than my other monsters. I can't even lift it at a normal speed without the standee slipping off. Is this normal or have I gotte some strange print run?

This was not the case with my copy. If you put the cardboard piece in one of the original game's plastic holders, does it fit better?

Contact iello. I had one of my creatures damaged and they replaced it.

I put a thin piece of clear tape on the bottom of the standup and it works fine.

Perhaps you could feed him some bamboo.

It slips out of each of the holders (and the other monsters fit well into the Power Up holder)

I thought about using tape... but, I dunno, it's just kinda annoying to "repair" something that's new.

I think I might contact Iello about the issue if this is not a standard issue that everyone is having.

I know it seems tiny, but it is a little frustrating.

Also, I don't have enough bamboo to feed a skyscraper-sized Panda ^_^.

Same with me. It stays on the base, but it looser than the originals. Probably just slightly thinner cardboard was used.

I have the exact same issue. My panda slips out really easy no matter what stand I use. The cardboard is different when compared side by side to the original monsters. I'd go to the publisher but odds are it will just be the same problem right?

Not necessarily.

My Pandakai is not too thin.

There was probably a bad batch made, and you each got one of them.

Finally found and bought a copy of KoT and Power Up yesterday
My Pandakai is so thin that it doesn't even stay in the stand by any means. I was considering repairs with tape but kinda worried about glue gum.
I am a little disappointed in this, I guess the card used for the latest printing wasn't quality checked at the manufacturer.

Mine was too thin as well. I put a bit of water (just a dab) on the bottom where the stand attaches, which made the cardboard swell a tad. Now it fits fine.

Same issue for me. I will probably not bother with iello, and just take the tape option.

My solution was a folded piece of paper (actually it's from a receipt, thinner) so as to not damage the cutout. You can't even tell it's there and most of the time, after a few plays, it stays on between games. I may try normal paper at some point.

Same here. Contacted them. Hopefully they'll send another Pandakaî that fits.

Mine was too thin as well. I put a piece of tape on the bottom of it, just large enough to get more grip on the base.

Mine was just barely too thin. I pulled a small sliver off of a cardboard box (a tissue box, if I recall correctly and you want to try to match the cardstock I used) and trimmed that to fit in the base so you couldn't even see it at all from the sides. I then put that piece and Pandakai in the base together and now they work perfectly.
