Received my Venom bust today. mine also has minor issues in the jaw with a small crack on each side. I'm going to keep mine, I have a feeling most of them are going to be this way and aside from that and a bit of sloppy glue by those cracks it's a really great piece with a lot of presence.

I guess it's a little relieving that most people seem to be having the same problem. You definitely have to look up close to see mine, but still annoying for a 2k piece. We'll see if it continues to bother me.

For sure, I'm right there with you. Annoying to have that bit of damage but for me ( the family agrees ) it's not worth returning or spending the money shipping this thing around to replace or repair. From a normal viewing area/distance mine isn't horrible. No other breaks or chips, paint is nice. Glad none of the teeth or tongue had damage, breakages there would have me asking for replacement.

One quick photo, don't have time today to take better lit ones.

Yours isn’t that bad, as the others I’ve seen the crack go all the way across, whereas yours is about half way and the crack/gap is not as wide or deep as others. Sucks of course, but if it doesn’t get any worse over time…...

That's honestly by biggest concern, is that it will get worse with time. I'd rather get rid of it at this point honestly. It's just not worth the headache. A badass piece flawed by a mistake in production. A few of us on FB are thinking the connection of the heavy tongue may contribute to it getting worse.

Wow! Just unboxed him. This thing is amazing! I see where people are talking about cracks. Its where the seams are coming together in the jaw. Not so much cracks I would say, and its really fragile right there. I can see where it could easily chip revealing the seam.

Thoughts on the damage?

Thoughts on the saliva?

I have to decide to

1) send back for a full refund
2) a partial refund of $200 to keep as is
3) $250 store credit
4) Send in to have it professionally repaired by the place I bought it from at their cost

What’s the concern regarding the saliva?

The drips on the one side hang down much further than I have seen on anyone else's. There is also one tooth that has a large glob around the base that just doesn't look great in my opinion. I am hoping I'll warm up to it.

I'm trying to send mine back for full refund, so that's my opinion on it lol. My tongue has a big drip like your tooth. What do companies do with major damaged pieces like this, anyone know?
