    It is most likely a chemical reaction between the head plastic and the torso plastic.

    Well, that didn't work well. I scrubbed every individual piece with Lava and a toothbrush and it is still tacky as all get out.

    I'm going to contact BBP directly to see if I can get an exchange.

    Ugh!

    Yes. I would suspect there's no washing or cleaning chemical that could possibly remedy this. Ask for a replacement.

    Hello,
    I recently purchased a Mike Tyson Cowboy action figure on eBay. Here is the auction:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/201677424525...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    Upon opening and examining the figure I noticed a sticky substance on his head. Upon removal of his clothing I discovered this sticky substance all over his chest, neck hole, every joint, and staining his shirt.

    You can see pictures here: http://megomuseum.com/community/show...figure-melting

    I first tried to wipe this substance up with a paper towel and failed. I then decided to take apart the figure and wash each individual piece with soap and water. The body pieces and head are still tacky as I was unable to remove all of the substance.

    I am writing to ask for a replacement Mike Tyson figure. I purchased the Cowboy version only because it was a good value, but in all honesty it does not matter which version of Mike Tyson I have (Cowboy, Astronaut, or Original), I just want one that does not have this "slime" on it.

    I would appreciate your help.

    Sincerely,
    Austin

    Do we know the story here now? Just an anomaly or did this effect most of the figures produced? I have the original version Mike, I'll need to check on mine to see if something similar has happened to mine. I recently bought the astronaut Mike because it came with Pigeon. But really I couldn't pass up the $12 shipped deal. I sure hope BBP/EMCE will continue making the rest of the cast.

    ^^^BBP sent me a replacement Cowboy AND an Astronaut fig. Cowboy still had the same problem and Astro Mike was a-okay!

    I informed them of the issue and thanked them for sending me an extra.
