    Thanks Zhong.

    Mine is also quite creaky but I did eventually manage to get it to go back and stay in place.

    Anyone have any suggestions on the cause? Raf you've looked up inside at the mechanism any ideas?

    Well really can't see much through the gaps . Just where it hits and stops but mine also has the noise which I'm thinking its normal since it's a spring type of mechanism

    My makes the noise too.

    Zhong one thing to mention is this, the mask really doesn't go back that much at all. You will never be able to see the eyes looking straight on, you always have to look a little bit underneath.

    Yes i know Steve but mine is missing 2-3mm up to see his eyes
    When i push up and the faceplate and helmet make an angle i see his eyes but faceplate dont stay in place

    CM just reply to me:

    "Hello Zhong,

    We found that some of them were tighter or stickier than others - when you first pull it away from the face
    it wouldn't come out all the way. But if you wiggled it a bit, super gently you could get it to release, and
    fully pull back. Please try this technique. The reason that the face plate does not go up more on yours is because you still need to pull the face plate out more before moving it up."

    Thanks for posting that Zhong. That makes sense. When j first lifted mine it wouldn't do all the way up but I actually pulled it out more then it started working.

    Hope it works!

    i retry and retry
    pull all i can but still can pull back more
    it don't stay in place

    spring is much easier to pull less noisier

    is it normal that the "2 bar" the one on the right of the pictures is curved not like the left one??
    maybe cause this i cant pull back more??

    I miss Kevin since he stopped collecting. I really enjoyed his reviews. Glad he is still around and hope he is doing well.

    Oh he's still very much collecting Dennis. He recently purchased the Lycan bust, my Superman CM and the HT Delorean. He just doesn't do the vid reviews any more.
