    You should be careful with that Rizfis figure. The peg on her right leg will break if you display her with her beautiful dress for too long. It’ll break even faster if she’s not displayed on even surface. ^^;;

      Really? I have her with the dress on, and she is on a super-even figure, showing in the family glass show-case in the living room.

      Her dress’s small peg on the new-clothes option won’t close, but you don’t see it unless you look for it.

      • Tommy says:

        Hurray for universal figure flaws. LOL. I have the same problem with her new clothes. I love the dress and that’s why I’ve been displaying mine with it until I found out the peg broke when cleaning. It’s not a matter of if it’ll break, it’s a matter of when.

    • Guy says:

      Ah… both pegs broke. Not only did they break, but they broke with them stuck in the holes in her legs. Any suggestion?

      I thought to myself it’d be ok. I KNEW I should’ve removed the dress. Though to be honest, I’m not sure if removing the dress would have been sufficient. I mean, is her pose such that her weight was evenly distributed without it?

      The problem is that the base was from a soft material, and they even had the pegs from a soft material. Soft material is not load-bearing :-/

      Any solutions? I mean, right now I place her with her skirt against the wall, but what am I to do if I were to take shots of her? And even if I do remove the skirt, unless she has some sort of perfectly balanced sculpt, she’ll still tilt :(

      This makes me sad.

    Yay for Nel. Ah Rize…I love her but that little design flaw with how her weight is supported really made me sad. Now she has to be strategically placed in the corner to use the wall to support her. Unless you looked close you wouldn’t be able to tell one of her pegs is broke…but I know :( I’m kind of turned off by the Shuraki now, not sure I’ll order anymore if they announce them. we’ll see.
