needs his S6 fix.

While I was painting my Lockdown, I noticed that his upper arms/shoulder pieces were misassembled.
You will see that there is a cloth clip holding his sleeves up that's on the front. Well according to the packaging, it's supposed to be in the back.
Also if you notice on pretty much all of the 8" figures, the longer side of the elbow joint is always on the back and not the front.
I have two Lockdowns and both were assembled this way.
Cataclizm1 has also confirmed that his is assembled this way as well.
Dunno how to fix this since it would require cracking open the torso cavity. :(
Doesn't really hinder any movement or anything, just a bit annoying.

Mine is the same. I just noticed after seeing your post. I wonder if all are the same?

It's really hard to crack his torso too because he has little tabs on either side glued over the seam to hold him together. I popped those off and pried him apart. His arms look a lot better, but I really beat up his torso.
