So, I mentioned last week that my Winter Soldier from the Infinity War box set had one of its legs completely snapped off and I decided to take photos of the damage.
So this is a photo of the Winter Soldier Minimates that I wanted to compare. From left to right you have Civil War Winter Soldier Minimate, the IW box set Winter Solder Minimate with the broken leg, and finally I have another Infinity War Winter Soldier that I bought off of Minimates Menagerie (I was not happy about it but I am a completionist)
This is a photo of the leg where the ball joint that broke off, while the other photo shows the ball joint stuck inside the leg. I can’t imagine how it broke inside the packaging.
And I took the legs from another Civil War Winter Soldier Minimate and had another gun holster around so I made what I think is a better Infinity War Winter Soldier Minimate. There’s more leg detail in legs than the IW Winter Soldier had, so I am satisfied with what turned out.
But I am extremely disappointed with the quality problems Minimates has had recently and I want to believe that the quality will get better, but I won’t hold my breath.
