    Hi All,

    After jumping into the world of Danbo and finally receiving my first one, I have a feeling that I've received one that's got a problem.

    The right leg seems to push inwards. I've tried comparing these to others online, but perhaps someone here can confirm by the pictures below:




    My item is not like this, but rather points inwards on the right leg.


    Nor this one:


    My problem is that it seems rather petty. The right leg seems bust at the hip and points inwards, where as the left leg seems quite mobile and with good movement. He also leans to the right as a result as well.

    If this is normal, then obviously I don't mind, it's just that the last two pictures show two legs that are the same length, where as this one has a right leg 2mm shorter than the left.

    Normal or not? :frown: Thanks to anyone who can help.

    I've decided to return it anyways, mods you can delete this unless it begins to spark conversation. I just thought there'd be a lot of Danbo fans able to share their experiences.

    I really thought this was a joke at first - then I hit Google. Interesting - lots of possibilities for creative photos! :cool:

    Legs on mine aren't perfect either. Didn't bother me enough to send it back though. I'll see if I've got any other shots that maybe show clearer

    Can sort of see it these ones I found on my iPhone too, even Jr's aren't perfect.

    Mine is likes less than 1mm off so definitely much better than the pics shown here.

    Yeah, I can't wait to start a 52 project if you like, one pic of him a week. Don't think I've got the time for a 365, but its one object that you can shoot in any weather!

    I can tell from your shots too. Thankfully, the company are going to replace him! I hope the next one is reasonably perfect. I don't want one that leans drastically to one side!

    Thanks for this, hopefully it's more of a one off!

    We're in Pet Rock territory with this one. Anyone remember those?

    Yes, I remember pet rocks, although I never had one, and those danbos are much cuter than pet rocks! :wink: :tongue:
