Even if I could get a functional replacement, I'm still going to work towards a better engineering solution for the wings, as from what I've seen so far, failure over time is certainly a possibility given the weight they exert on those connection points.

On this sample here, those wings have to be between 1/4-1/3 the weight of the entire statue. That's too heavy for how thinly cast the rest of it is.

It's possible that for the owners like ambash, they were fortunate to get one that's been more robustly cast in general. I hope that's the rule and cases like ours are just the exception.

Also- Damn! I didn't realize the Hush Superman was that tall. I'm not a big Jim Lee fan, but that's an impressive piece!
Hi! Iím from Brazil and Iron Studios usually solve this kind of problem quite well. Contact them at Info@ironstudiosus.com.

Recall? I don't see that happening.

Thanks, brother.
I emailed them Monday, but still haven't heard back yet- from them or SS.

I agree with leplant about the need for a recall- if the rest of the run was cast in the same way mine, and presumably aa909's, was.
Like ENDO, I don't realistically see that happening though.
