STATUE OF MOLAG BAL DOESNT FIT BASE?

NineIsles

Has anyone else had this problem? The holes in the bottom of the feet don't match up to their respective pillars in the base. This is really frustrating, do they move or something? I don't want to break it.

    Mine wont fit either, Not impressed.

    So it's not just mine then? I find this pretty appalling considering I've paid 90 pound and I get a statue that doesn't fit.
  • wallace90b16_ESO
    Nope not just you, Mine clearly wont fit, But I don't want to force it. I paid 90 Pounds for mine as well. Seeing as the statue and the art book were the only reasons I bought the collectors edition. I'm very angry.

    Mine doesn't fit either, and I saw people saying the same thing elsewhere (like Reddit).

    Not only that but mine came with part of the guy who Molag bal is holding snapped off :(

    I was so excited when the courier handed the box to me 20 minutes ago, but now i'm left feeling a bit foolish after paying £90 (US$150). I could have just bought the digital version with a discount for 1/3 of the price.

    Yeah the box and everything looks sick, everything else is fine! I love the book and map, it's just the statue that's the problem.

    As for yours being snapped, that sucks bro. I'm sure you can get that replaced though.
  • wallace90b16_ESO
    I've look on Reddit, apparently a lot of people have this issue. Not really sure what to do.

    my holes in the bottom of the feet didn't match up to their respective pillars in the base either, but little bending and they went into place quite nicely :)

    Sounds like Molag Bal just doesn't want to be contained, huh? We'll look into this for you, and let you know what your options are. Stand by!

    Yeah I've just fixed mine - You really need to force it in, I was really scared of breaking it.

    Put the bottom leg in first, then sort of push down and forward on the top leg and make it slide down into the pillar along the base of the foot.

    Just did it, got mine to fit, Bit of a squeeze. But it seems pretty secure. Thanks for the help.
  • dragonsquarterb16_ESO
    Right, i'm going to give this a go.... and if it goes horribly wrong i'll know who to blame :wink:

    Push the bottom foot in first, Then push down on the left leg/foot to get it in the pin.

    The front pillar snapped off as soon as I put in both legs due to the strain on the front leg :/ payed €100,- for the CE... this is really unacceptable.

  • NineIsles
    NineIsles
    Ouch, they should have made the gap a lot smaller to be honest.
  • dragonsquarterb16_ESO
    I have a feeling that sales of glue are going to rocket over the next few days...

    Yep had to force mine to get it to fit. The parts of the statue don't seem very well put together either, there's a gap of about 2mm in the join of one of the arms, and the join around the skirt and jaw both have gaps too. Very cheap, can I get a replacement (better built) one?

    Thanks

    It's just cheap chinese made garbage couldn't get it to fit either at first, the holes in his feet aren't drilled out properly but managed to carefully push him onto it eventually

    Wow. I debated and debated about buying this. But then pre ordered the standard game for £24 and may add on the imperial pack. I would be really hacked off if I spent £90 as I've seen other pics on other forums too. Screams cash grab to me.
  • NineIsles

    Yeah it's quite cheaply made, but just gotta get on with it I suppose, nothing we can really do.

    Just picked mine up and noticed the same problem, it has almost an inch gap between the raised foot and hole once the other peg is lined up. If I try to force it I can hear the whole thing creaking, not going to happen.
    Be nice to know what my options are.

    Mine doesn't fit either. I'm not going to force it, because if it breaks, no one is going to refund me...So, what is the solution ZOS? :/

    i wont get mine till tomorrow. this makes me afraid D=
  • wallace90b16_ESO
    If you push the legs in a bit you can get them in the pins.

    On the bright side, the art book is simply stunning, as is the steelbook case.

    Just don't use too much pressure. It's easy enough to get it to fit.
