I just need to ask a few questions that other people will hopefully know the answers to!

I've bought three clear booster packs so far, and one of my three has loose joints. Is this a common problem with the figures? To make it worse, it's my elephant. He's so top heavy that unless I have him propped up, he eventually tips over.

Secondy, I got a gold dice. I remember reading somewhere that they're "chase" items. How rare are they to get?

Other than that, I think I know everything I need to know right now. But I have no problem if anyone else wants to use this thread as a FAQ-like thread.

1. I have noticed some loose joints on the clear figures as well. My elephant had loose leg joints. Usually, to tighten the joint, I take the piece off. Then, with a toothpick, I add a small, thin coat of super glue onto the peg of the joint. Let it completely dry. Then reattach the leg. It should be nice and tight, but still moveable.

2. The gold dice are a bit of a chase item, however I believe that we have discovered them to not be that rare. I know that I have several. I think the two foil cards are a bit rarer.

As some people may remember I don't have the best luck removing joints. Is it easier to do than on Battle Beasts??

Yes, they are a softer plastic rubber. The arms and legs just pop right off.

If I get brave enough I might just try. I like having more sturdy joints as opposed to this loose crap.

It works like a charm.

As far as general noobie stuff goes, I kinda want to setup a wiki, with all the items, and as much translation as possible for like the Names, the Profile Cards, and Rules of the dice game.

But that'd be so much work.

Loose joints? I've been lucky so far, I've got close to one of everything (none of the unpainted promo guys) and nothing is loose as of yet. Some are pretty tight to the point of being squeaky, though. I haven't heard of other problems with loose joints myself as of yet.

Secondy, I got a gold dice. I remember reading somewhere that they're "chase" items. How rare are they to get?



Gold dice are packaged in 1:3 of the clear Bats and Dolphins. They aren't super-rare, but they aren't a sure thing either. There are chase foil trading cards as well, same ratio (1:3) with the shark and the lion.

If you're considering buying more of these, may I make a suggestion? Get the 6-pack. It's awesome. The sea 3-pack is excellent as well.

I was talking to Saleen I believe it was about getting the sea starter. I like the shark and the coelacanth is just an added bonus.

FINALLY got around to trying this. I have zero luck! All of my joints went back on fine except one of the legs, which is now permanently glued on. The plus side? It glued back on in the proper spot so at least he stands up straight. I have the worst luck/skill!

Yeah, if you are going to do this method, you definitely want to make sure that the glue is completely dry. Usually, I just let the glue dry over night before I put the joints back together.
