Hi Jerry,

So at this point, out of the people that have opened their statues:

23, broken and reported
6, broken and not reported
14, fine

so we have 67.4% damage rate with a 53% report rate, (46% report rate if you count the ones who have not opened theirs). You'll probably have a few more stragglers roll in later, but can you please enlighten us with what Sideshow told you about breakages?

Beyond that, I would love to hear your thoughts on whether you personally believe these statues are of a 'quality' construction?

Finally, I was wondering what is going to happen to all of the pieces that are going to be returned? Do you have to refund Sideshow for all of those and then have to pay to have them shipped back to you? It seems like a lot of expense, and a lot of customer dissatisfaction that could be avoided by upping the discount that is Sideshow is offering. $35 is a joke for statues that are coming broken in several places, magnets falling out, and all of the future failures the construction of this piece almost guarantees. It scares me to think that a lot of these will be glued back together, and then miraculously end up on 'Second Chance'.

These are just questions. No agenda. Just generally interested in what happens when issues of this magnitude occur.

Daniel just replied me that there are no more replacements. I will need to return it for a full refund.(but there is 10 ex in-stock, right?!)

Anyone can tell me after I return it and get a full refund, will I be able to place a new order again since it is still in-stock?

SO I WAITED 10 MONTHS FOR NOTHING. WASTED ALL MY ENERGY.(ordering, waiting, cleaning up the mess,return process, return process etc. etcs.) GO THROUGH ALL THIS CRAP. ARR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Place the new order for a new one, then return the broken one if you have the funds available. You will still get your cash back to replace the money you used to secure the new one


As a matter of fact just flex it and then call them when you get your full refund to pay the balance will only cost the NRD because you will have your refund before the first payment is due.

Is that possible? I thought this is limited to 1 pc per customer and I can only place a new one unless the old order is cancelled.

That's the only way to get around SS and their bizarre policy of not exchanging when there's 10 available.

Unless they know that the chances of them being broken is high and not worth resending it.
