It's clear they're done with this license and it's customers anyway.

They spent money to get good production with several Street Fighter pieces and they are still sitting in their warehouse 1.5 years after release so little reason to pay a premium for an even less profitable license.

They followed through with this mainly to keep from having to refund money.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Yes you're correct ...Was my last PCS piece on order ...I have s lot of their MK but also Conan and Master of The Universe but I wouldn't preorder with them again or order till a in hand review of the quality with close ups ...They'll need to prove their quality before purchase from now on.

Got mine put together. I like it. Pretty cool piece. They did miss some paint on the base and I had to widen the keyhole for the peg to fit. Base doesn't feel like it's the highest quality, but serves its purpose. I'm good with the paint on Scorpion...not bad. Not a masterpiece, but I'm happy with it and happy I got it. That said, I didn't have to wait 3 years for it, either...

Just got my scorpion statue today, kinda better than what i expected given the mixed reviews

is the paint on his face different from his body, mine look a bit "wash out" or more dull as compared to his arms

How good are the magnets on yours? The first few reviews that I came across said those were all solid. But then the last 2 or 3 video reviews I watched all said they were so weak that they were nervous about broken hands being an eventuality.

To me, it's not a stinker. I think it looks good and even better with the light-up features. However, it will not completely blow you away either.

I personally think the pose is what makes this piece standout. I'm happy with it....

Watch some reviews like Xtreme Collectibles. Both are just sloppy and little cared for.

From across the room with beer goggles, probably will satisfy.

If you're expecting value for the cash or top quality then you will indeed probably be left with a bad smell.

Haha . Appreciate the honesty

And I'm a sucker for light up features

I think if pcs hadn't screwed me a few times in the past and as long as the light up worked I could see my self being somewhat happy with it
