Hi,

I recently picked up the Diamond Select 60s Batman Shakespeare Bust bank, and out of the box it seems he ‘leans’ slightly forward and to the left. It looks like the vinyl of his chest has sagged in storage. I’m wondering, short of going through the hassle of sending it back and risking getting another one that does the same, if there’s a way I can encourage the vinyl back into shape somehow without damaging it?

Suggestions welcome :)

This is a well known problem. I went to my buddy’s toy store a few years ago when these first came out. His order of ten banks arrived while I was there. We opened every one and they were all warped. I would think a heat gun would help.

Ugh - sorry to hear about your buddy's faulty stock. And thanks for the tip...I don't have a heat gun but I've tried holding it over my toaster and gradually convincing it back into a more upright pose. Bit worried I might damage the vinyl so I've been doing it incrementally.
