What happened!!

This new and unused figure was delivered to the owner with his eyes, eyebrows, and mouth fallen back within the head. So, it came to me for repair. Now I'm quite certain everything was in place when the builder shipped it. However, the inside of the cast head is as glossy smooth as fine china. And the mechanics were mounted to this non-porous surface with hot melt glue. While the bonds probably appeared to be initially solid, nearly all broke free during shipment. All it took, apparently, was some good jostling (something you can expect from most any of the shipping services, unfortunately). One ear had fallen off as well!

Thanks to some time and superior super glue, he's good as new (even better).
