Dont want to be too anal but is it kind of normal that the Soul Gems dont align properly when attached?

I also had a couple of figurines with broken feet missing parts and bases that broke off from figurines. The really bended parts I fixed with water.

That all looks and sounds totally abnormal. It would drive me nuts having to look at pieces that were as poorly cut as those.

Broken figures are a nogo, you should contact customer service and ask for replacements.

The misaligned soul gems walk the thin line between low quality and broken. Some of mine are a little off too, but it is barely noticeable. Yours are definitely worth complaining about, but I am not sure how they will react. Be sure to let us know!

Mine are also a bit misaligned, however not that bad.
some figurines are also quite bend. How exactly did you fix the bending?

Mine were quite bent, and I fixed them by submerging one figure at a time into hot water, no longer than 5 seconds. Most of them emerged with their weapons in the desired shape. Others, I could bend easily as I wanted to.

I followed that up by placing them into a bowl of ice cold water for approximately one minute.

I've used the same technique for multiple other board games and think the effect was one of the best in S&S. None of the figures have returned to their bent shapes.

Seems they are going to send me replacements for everything. Broken figurines and the discs.

Aside from what Michael already said: Google for "fix bent minis with hot water" and you'll find lots of tutorials. It's really easy to do and works well. i had to unbend more than 20 of my S&S minis.
