They claim in their book that the shipping department does the final QC on the statues but who knows. I don't know why they accept such poor quality items, maybe they get them at discount? They give their producers enough work and money that they can be pickier for their customers.

There's been a number of reports lately on Facebook from people having issue's with Prime 1 statues. One guy has a Robin 1/3 scale who's foot is off the base, failing to connect. There's other issue's with other statues too. There is a 1/2 Superman that leans backwards! Comments tended to focus on Prime 1 pushing too much through their factory, over working staff, cutting corners to deliver on time. This is just speculation though. It appears Prime 1 have their issues also.

They all have their issues. It's how they address the issues that really matters.

Not so much a complaint, as a slight annoyance.
Sideshow offering free global shipping on some 1/4 statues, but never the 1/4 statue i want

In Sideshow's defense name another statue company out there that offers free shipping? Especially on items that large. I honestly don't think there are any.

In all the years I've been ordering from them I think I've had only one piece ship free myself and that was the Jango Fett PF. They use it as a marketing ploy to help push certain pieces for various reasons. I for one don't find it annoying in the slightest.

So I took a little time off from collecting (about 18 months) and I was shocked to learn how expensive some of these Polysstone figures are now.

I used to be able to buy the Polystone statues between, $300-500, like the Alien ones for example. (there were always ones that were much more money, but there were a lot around this price point)

I checked today and the cheapest one is $749 with most of them around $999-1999. Does anyone know why?

Hi Alex, can I ask....what's up with the noticeable lean on the new Wolverine PF? It wasn't there on the prototype shown at SDCC or NYCC. It looks all kind of awkward/bad to me after seeing it on SS live.
