Elijah RC Unit Problems continued...

Please read the following captions first: RC Elijah and RC Billy - Newest Products from New Line!

I was having problems with the other RC unit I received, so I was sent a replacement.
Problem is, it came in this box.

Not quite big enough for my unit. When I got it out of the box, it now looks like this:

The reset button is blocked. Any suggestions?

Has anyone else had difficulty with the packing?

Shucks! You've got more luck than me bullroarer, when I received my package it looked like..

All the newest model RC's come packaged this way, as it is more cost effective for the consumer. At least that's what I was told by customer support. If you look very closely at the bottom of the packing slip, you will find new directions have been added to aid in unpacking the unit.

Each RC has a special one time start up switch, which is entirely separate from the main power switch. It is a pressure sensitive pad located somewhere on your RC. To make it more fun, the company decided to put the switch in different locations on each unit. The trick is to tickle your unit, with just the right amount of pressure in exactly the spot where the sensor is on your particular unit. Mine was located behind his right knee.

Once you hit on the right spot, your RC unit will literally spring out of the box. Like so....

Sean Feels Left Out

by bullroarer took, Elijah's Grey Panthers (referring to the fact that Sean Astin hasn't been in captions too much...

So, I was looking at Grey Panthers, and starting to feel quite sad.

There was all this stuff about Billy, Dom and Orli's shirts, and tons of stuff about YKW. The facial hair, the eyes, the malfunctioning RC units, yadda yadda yadda.

Nothing about Sean. Nada. Niente.

Oh sure, some stuff about Sam, but anything about Sean?


I felt neglected.

So, I called Andy. He's always left out. Hello, Academy? Jeez!

Andy and I discussed it at length. Batted a few ideas back and forth...

Then I got the perfect idea...

*Sigh* The things I will endure for a stupid cap thread.
