I have had my Wm 170cm #149 head, for about a month. She is very heavy and her left hip joint was not as loose as her right hip joint. Sure enough despite my cautiousness the hip gave way. I am not sure I am capable of fixing her myself so I am considering selling her and maybe getting a smaller doll. Any suggestions would be helpfull.
Thanks.

Well I see WM is still selling dolls with defective hip joints like the one I received over a year ago. Unacceptable. How can they not have fixed this problem yet? This is bullshit.... :shakefist:

Things like this make me worry. I have had my Arabella for a few days now. She is a WM 163, but I have noticed the right hip joint is tighter than the left, just the opposite. Hopefully mine will be fine, it has seemed to loosen a bit over last few days, but I hope it doesn't break.

Hi 41 Sails

A month isn't long enough to have her break considering how much you would have paid for her. Have you contacted the vendor you got her from?

OK. There's a problem here. . . . And it's important to find out what it is. It might be simply a nut come off the bolt and the bolt come out of the joint. That's easy. No problem.





Knowing the longevity of the brand I doubt significantly if the skeleton components are not strong enough and that any one has broken.

I interviewed two new brands of doll and have experienced really broken hips . . . and gave both away to people who could repair them.

If this a simple nut and bolt job then you can do it. If it's something broken this needs to be referred back to WM as a fault, the doll to be replaced and a redesign necessary. But I'm confident it's not going to be that and that it's a simple bolt job.

Best wishes

Harem

How many nuts are there on the hip joint? Presumably there is at least one more to enable forwards movement? Where is that nut?

The right leg on my doll cannot be lowered. I did lower it once with great effort and it took an hour to force it back gagin. Since then she has been stuck in a permanent sitting position. I would like to know how to loosen it.

Well, I don't think I want to try the repair myself. I'll be selling her ASAP. I have attached a few pics that might help show where the fault is.

I live in Southern California btw.

Thanks for all the help.

Man, after only a month, I would insist on another doll! At the very least a doll for only shipping!

I just talked to CC about this, he said that he would be willing to attempt a repair for the cost of shipping both ways! Just thought I would pass it along! It is really sad to see such a young girl in such pain!

That's awesome TripleA. Still, a month old doll, he should take it up with the vendor. When you spend over a thousand dollars you expect it to last longer than an iPhone. :razz:

I like the repair videos. It was like watching surgery on the doll :)

I think robot repair will be a high demand job in the future.
Technicians will need to be trained to repair the mechanical, the electrical, and the silicone.

The day will come when every city will have a local repair shop for robots and a few robot repair shops will also specialize in sexbot repairs ;)

If you were closer to me. I would give it a whirl trying to fix her hip.

I would love to go to WM and spend a couple days with them. I could improve their productivity and quality control.

@gimreefer24601;
I whole heartedly agree that he should contact the vendor first, and I sincerely hope that the vendor can/will help him out. I have seen TDF approved vendors stand firmly behind the customer, but I have also seen TDF approved vendors leave their customers out to dry. So I hope the best for him, but in the event that he can find no resolution We at missatleur will do the best that we can to assist. And unfortunately this would be the best that we could offer!

@Robert Lloyd;
Thank you for taking the time to watch our videos! Sometime in the future their may be a demand for repairs on "Robots" but as for dolls, the people like us at missatleur, do it for the love of the doll hobby, not for any profits, most of the time we are happy to break even.
And the new skeletons are even making that almost impossible as they are truly disposable and the time and effort to make even a small adjustment on these new skeletons are not worth the cost, unless a doll owner can do it for him/her self!
The doll manufacturers are making the dolls more and more disposable, we continue to purchase them, so this trend will continue!

@winterwarBo;
We at missatleur try to do what we can for the hobby! If you are ever around the Atlanta area, look us up! We can hang for a while!
Productivity is not really a problem with Chinese doll manufacturing, but as with most Chinese doll manufacturers, quality control cost money, so it is expendable! Again as long as we continue to purchase at this level, this will be the best that it will get!
