WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR SHIPMENT OF GOTHITROPOLIS: RAVENS FIGURES, PLEASE BE CAREFUL BENDING ANY OF THE FIGURE’S JOINTS FOR THE FIRST TIME – Before forcing any joint to bend for the first time, please use care and possibly even heat up the joint with a blow dryer for a few seconds (a quick dip in hot water also works). The warmth will loosen the joint which will allow the brand new factory fresh joint free movement. Failure to follow these directions could result in damage to your Gothitropolis: Ravens figures. If needed, re-heat any stiff joints until they reach the desired level of flexibility. These figures are going to begin shipping out to all of our Kickstarter backers in the next couple of days, so we wanted to make everyone aware of this beforehand.
