Aliens Vs. Marines Army Dump

Recommended Posts

Got an email response from DST about my wrong footed Aliens and 2 right arm Wierzbowski. They'll replace the feet but won't replace the arm because "the arms are ambidextrous. They bend both front and back. As long as the smallest part of the hand is face inward towards Wierzbowski, it’s the correct hand." Maybe I'm missing something but all of the Minimates I have clearly have a left and right arm. There is a point on the back of the elbows that doesn't allow movement backwards (at least not as far as they go forward). I tried moving the arm forward and it doesn't bend nearly as much as it does going backwards, so I know its the wrong arm. Can anyone help me with this before I reply back to DST?

Arms are not really interchangeable as there is a left and a right. They know this, or at least, they should.

Consider a character like Cable, too, where he's asymmetrical. That may not apply here, but the point is that there IS a right and a left, and sometimes that's a pretty big deal

Yeah, totally not true.

I'm wondering how these sold at everyone's LCBS. I stopped at mine the day after they got them in stock. I had $20 in store credit so I bought Burke, Spunkmeyer and an alien. Wierzbowski was the only one that had been sold thus far. I came back Saturday to buy the other two aliens that I needed and there was only one Alien left (which I snatched up). These are probably the fastest selling minimates that I have seen at my LCBS. I wish I had the extra money to get a bunch of them when I first saw them. I may end up just buying a case from Luke and selling the extras that I don't need.

If they sold as fast for others as they did for me I could see us getting numerous Alien/Aliens sets. They turned out looking so damn cool. I still have my fingers crossed that we get a crawling version of the alien too at some point.

No she was definitely talking about the arms. Regardless she's sending me new left feet for my Aliens and a new arm for Wierzbowski.

I have to assume she just didn't know. The arms are definitely not the same. They are structurally different, both halves (upper and lower arm).

Also, I opted not to open my first case. If there are wrong parts in it, I will cry sometime later...

1 of my many shops sold a case worth and has another. The many others don't appear to have ordered.

Mine never ordered them.

Mine are in my dreams .

Regarding DST & their response to the 'left arm being the same as the right arm' .......I would have thought that they would be bending over backwards in the circumstances?rolleyes.gif

Exactly AND she fixed it right away that same day. I was just looking for clarification from the "experts". Didn't mean to stir up anything.

Zach, thanks for any behind the scenes help with this.

My battle-damaged alien was missing spikes from his back. Emailed last week, response the same day and I got a complete one today.

AND I've scored 6 sets of Jules hands for my 6 Pulp Fiction sets a bit back.

Customer service is TOPS.

Just email customer service. Since I bought so many I took a picture of all my sets and included it so they'd know I wasn't scamming them.

I went to a few shops last thursday, two of them had the dump case, one store had all the humans and one alien warrior left, the other place had 7 figures (the humans and a few aliens) left. Seems the Aliens are selling fast and the humans are lingering (at least in my neck of the woods)

My LCS sold out 2 boxes the first week. Luckily i was saved 2 aliens. They just ordered another box because I said I would buy most of them if they did.

The Aliens are really, really cool.
