I was really happy about getting these and I was really excited to get them open and then I opened them. Anytime I open an action figure I test all the obvious joints, it's something I've done since I was a kid and I thought action figures only came from my parents. I get the figure, I test all the joints and then I play with it. Well I tested the joints on these and immediately got a 50% failure rate. Opened Kyle and Kilowog and Kyle broke, opened John and Atrocitus and Atrocitus broke. I would be less frustrated if a whole set broke but as it is that's like another $75 to $100 to buy the two sets again and have doubles of two perfectly fine, not really custom compatible, figures. I contacted DC and got nowhere so now it looks like I'll have to repair them myself. I've looked online and have a few ideas about how to go about it. If anyone has any suggestions (I'm not shipping them anywhere to get fixed) I'd love to hear them. This is the closest I've gotten to completely regretting a purchase. I typically don't buy things I'm on the fence about wanting so I'm usually really psyched about everything I buy but this time I wish I either been more careful testing the joints (even though I wasn't that aggressive) or just passed on buying them altogether.
