Hope you shipped it insured. Make the claim and bleed useless Canada Post for full value. I hate CP with a passion. Thieves and thugs it seems.

As an owner of the same Asiatam metal elephant, I can tell you that just moving it around would cause some of the same damages. It was extremely fragile even when it was shipped in pieces. I can't imagine shipping the one I built now. 

I think I broke two swing arms putting it together, and Dean broke one just from painting (i.e. moving it around).

It was like it is made out of clay.

Is the metal they used that poor of quality? I assume a lot of it is zinc pot metal casting then? I've seen many instances of castings being porous and mechanically brittle.
