I don't have a solution but I admire the problem.

Basically, I ended up using one hand to grab/clasp two ends of the cloth in the upper body area and one hand near the lower area around the thighs, clasped two sides of the cloth together, and lifted both ends straight up slowly at the same time making note not to put any undue stress/pressure near the ankles and lower leg area. Doing it this way, it seemed to be easier to get the statue out of the styrofoam for me at least.
That is how I got mine out, but if not doing that was enough to cause the breaks we've seen on here, I would never keep the statue. I'm already worried about long-term failure rate and Sideshow has never gotten back to me about the return of this one. With each day that passes, I'm more willing to not have this one in my collection.

I have already stopped ordering new Prime 1 pieces. Their failure rate for me personally has been outrageous.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Yeah this one definitely seems to be more tightly packed than it should/could have been. I'm just happy that mine didn't have the issues some of you are having with this piece.

Same here, I'm so happy that I don't have any issues but at the same time, I'm very paranoid about this piece now, not sure if I even dare to move it anymore lol

Just paid mine off early. Fingers crossed she arrives in tact.

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

I have really missed something in these threads. Not once have I ever been under the impression that P1 has some high failure rate. Which P1 pieces outside of this one have a high failure rate?

It was certainly tight, but mine was already broken beforehand.

For the 1/3 scale pieces, I donít think there have been many issues. At least not widespread ones. The last time I remember multiple individuals having the same issues was supposedly the Deathstroke magnets and staff breaking at the connection point.

Itís unfortunate but some individual collectors have just had horrendous luck.

But then again outside of breaks I think I could critique 80% of my statues for Ďminorí paint issues across all manufacturers.

AK Harley Quinn - Great

Spiderman 2099 - Broken cape/second cape so horribly warped that the hairdryer trick wasn't working

1/2 WW - Broken skirt on first / replacement has scratches on leg and was covered in what I can only assume is polystone mist / missing battery cover and screw / no response from P1 since September

Anti-Venom - Scratched base that I decided to live with

Venom - Broken tendril

Catwoman - both legs broken

6 pieces from Prime 1, 5 screwed up....they looking good with that 16.7% success rate.

You still don't have yours?

My last payment was scheduled for next week, but I called them today and had them process it today. Mine is already listed as shipped according to my online account. I have a tracking number, it just hasn't updated yet with delivery date.
