Alright, I recently purchased a new Trazyn model, got it glued together and primed. After waiting the night for it to dry the top part of his staff broke out, making it a pain to reglue it back on. I had to break off his hand in order to make it easier to glue it back on seeing it was so top heavy.
For the record, I did put a nice coat of primer on it. Wasn't too heavy but still the model felt flimsy when I was trying to get it out of the plastic frames. Has any of you guys experienced this issue?
Trazyn isn't actually plastic, but finecast resin. Finecast is indeed kinda flimsy and soft. The good thing is that because its soft its not brittle, but the bad thing is that because its soft... well, its soft.

I've been told some of the recent finecast is seeming to be different than the first batch. Maybe a bad cast or something. But yes, brittle is what I've been told of finecast as of late

A lot of the early miscasts were due to the behaviour of the resin "mix" - it's perfectly possible that GW are trying to improve by "playing" with the recipe a little to avoid this. That would explain the product differing from the earlier batches.
My Tazaryn was like that too, but nothing has broke off yet. However i had 2 breaks with my deveiver which is now made with resin cast. Repairs aren't too bad but you really got to hold the model for 2 solid minutes after applying the glue.
I recommend you dont put any finecast models in the sun, they tend to droup quite a bit.
Resin models get soft the hotter they get. I have a Hierophant and have to periodically heat the legs with a hair dryer to bend them back into their proper shape.
I imagine the finecast models will be fine as long as they aren't in direct sunlight or anyplace where it gets too hot.
I have Canis Wolfborn and Imotekh, both finecast and no problems.
