Ok... so just received another email from CS, apologizing for any confusion, and telling me that the figure needs to be used with the plastic insert.

Not only does that look like shit... Mine won’t stand even with the insert.

I sent an email to CS Sunday and resent it a couple more times. I haven't gotten a response but the ones you got aren't too promising. The Wonderfest photos were from July, 2018 so Ashley Wood and ThreeA knew about everything by then. The promotional photos that my purchase was based on show the figure having two legs of the same length and standing without a stand or the plastic insert, There was also no disclaimer as GSC sometimes states about products such as Nendoroids-that they require a stand. There was no such disclaimer for the Burnt Fang Gal sold by GSC. The responses you've received are just bullshit. I can only conclude that ThreeA/Ashley Wood have contempt for their customers.

A nice half way house might be for someone at threea or here to post where they got those stands from... or even facilitate people getting some?

And sell new fang girls with them?

I like the bent leg and think it’s deliberate - would happily take one if I knew I could get a good quality stand too.

The leg isn't bent, it's too short. Also, if it was deliberate it would be in the promotional photos on Bambaland and other websites. The only thing that was deliberate was shipping a defective product.

Just received my Neopolitan Fang Gal (Thanks Wooly for the set split.)  I'm surprised that she was weighted; didn't expect the heaviness.  I'm sure that was intended to keep the figure standing, however with the ill-cut feet flaw, its use is nullified.  Anyway, as I expected from hearing every other experience, my figure doesn't stand on her own.   It's a shame for such a beautiful figure.  The only solution I've found to keep her standing aside from the clear plastic "blister" or an actual figure stand is to use glue dots and stick the figure to the shelf since my feet aren't so "gappy" though they are cut at a slight angle that makes the figure fall back. drunken  

Hmmm...I just twisted the figure at the waist so that her back is facing forward and her breastesses are facing backward and Viola, she is standing!  Disaster averted! tongue   I guess I'll just use a stand. Neutral

Great set as far as the fun factor goes. Fun look for either figure, nice lines and colors plus a great nod for the PuddingBoss nostalgia fans.
Sorry to hear about the Fangy woes - it definitely seems like a figure where the one and only feature would be that she stands on her own.

(glad she got there safe and sound Chivo)

Oh and BTW, beautiful box art and presentation. That should be said as well. I thought the design with Ash's original strokes was great.

Ah, yes. Thanks for the box as well, Wooly. Love the inside art of the Bambaboss with the Fang Gal. Though I couldn't figure out what the rest of the art was on the actual box. Roses? Or Neopolitan ice cream mixture?

My Neapolitan set finally arrived today. The legs on my Fang Gal aren't too bad but it still needs the plastic piece to stand relatively straight. Stoked on Bambaboss though, he joins his other Bambabuddies on the shelf. Very Happy

Since this is a preorder, I’m guessing this Fang Gal isn’t limited like the rest of them?

I don't think it's a preorder. There are only 50 of each Fangs as far as I know. These ship out in 4 weeks.

Not worth it for me. Was hoping they'd make one with the whole face, not just the eyes.

After getting within 2 miles of my house and getting sent back to China, my Neapolitan set finally made it back. The matte finish is lovely on both figs. My Gal is afflicted with the same issue as my SDCC Gal. While the legs are mostly the same length, they angle upwards towards the back, making them tip backwards. The plastic "stand" works okay on one but barely holds the other up. The plastic looks like garbage so I'll be getting something else. I suggest adding $5 to the price and including a real stand.

If I knew anything about 3D printing and had a printer I would design a stand for Fang and offer it up on Shapeways. C'est la vie.

I'm thinking of getting an acrylic riser and drilling a couple of holes in it. Or making my own out of styrene.

Neapolitan is a treat, for sure. I'm grateful for the opportunity to have split the set with a cool boardie. (cheers brother Chivo!)
I'm very happy with the execution of it all and sorry for you guys with the wobbly Fang.
You'd think it'd be an easy fix for potential figures down the line but what do I know. . .

Lost my internet the past weeks.  Trying to work out the kinks now with the cheapest solution.Wink   My shelves also fell down from the wall with alot of my figures crashing down. Thought a car had crashed into my home.  Luckily I wasn't in my studio room where it happened, otherwise I probably would have been hurt.   I guess I didn't attach the shelves to a stud, but they seemed strongly secure to the drywall; I guess I was wrong.  Luckily no figures were that badly damaged.  A couple of paint rubs that were easily wiped off.  An ankle breakage on my Tracky Bleak; luckily I have an extra Tracky Bleak. And ankle cracks on my Shogun; hopefully glue or putty can repair it.    

Anyway, cheers to you as well, Wooly.  Thanks again as well for the split.  Don't know what I'm going to do with my Fang Gal.  Still working out how I'm now going to display my fallen figures.  No more shelves for me.  

On another note, I'm looking forward to this new year.  Hopefully we  all can workout any bad kinks we've had in this old year. And the new year brings us positive growth.    

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!

Not yet. Complaints have been heard and a more sturdy small stand is being made to be included with it
