    I bought a slann this week and the it sits crooked on the clear plastic rod. It's like he's all drunk and wobbly. The metal itself is formed wrong.

    Has anyone else come across this? What did you do?

    I painted my slann a couple of days ago myself and I see what you mean.
    This is not a uncommon problem on metal models unfortunetly, so you have to improvise.
    I used some green stuff and glue, making the slann sit in place and waited over night so the green stuf hardened.
    It realy did the trick, though I think drilling a hole in the palaquin fitting the plastic rod might be the best sulution..

    I believe this is done on purpose. In all the pictures I've seen on the Slann he is a lil crooked. I even noted the 'eavy Metal Slann is a lil crooked. I didn't like it an straited mine out.

    Thanks guys,

    I am either going to try the green stuff or fill the hole with sadder and drill a new hole.

    I doubt him being crooked is planned. I have seen it all those places as well and I think it looked tacky.

    The "easyest" way is just to base him without the rod on a lare square base (thats what I did) but beyond that I would sugest drilling out the hole to even it up. if you want to get "fancy" you could drill out a little from each floating stone and put in a thin rod in each. Should stableize the whole thing and give it a bit more resilance.

    I just finished painting the slann today. I left it crooked because I really didn't feel like trying to fix it and wrecking $45 or whatever it cost.

    I think it still looks pretty good.
