No rotation on mine.

That would have been a cool extra detail.

Don't mind the row of lighting on the bottom. When standing in the room, you cannot see it.

noticed with the necklace looks like miss and miss...some have skin tone paint where it should be gold and some have gold where it should be skin tone paint....in the pics here i havent seen one thats correct yet.....

sending my EX back for paint issues...minor ones but i figured somebody might be OK with it and appreciate the statue more....i am sure it will get recycled out into the wild anyway when they receive it back.

I thought I would have to super glue it back in place but when I slid the blade back on and rotated/screwed it on, it had a firm enough grip and held on pretty well.

So I wouldn't worry too much because it can be easily reattached or glued back in if necessary.
My sword was completely detached from the hilt as well. No sliding in back. I guess the peg is broken? I wrote to Sideshow and asked for a replacement. Bad luck with both arms for me.

Ah OK, I see why the base of my blade is rotating slightly. The hilt has that small cylinderical peg that inserts into the blade. I think a dab of super glue would fix yours with no problems at all.

I don't see a broken peg. Why not just glue the sword back onto the peg... looks like whatever glue they used just came loose.
