Without going through all the post, what’s majority of the defects?

2 sword breaks, a base and a hair piece from what I remember.

My base has a small chip on one of the flame tips but i didnt mention that to SSC because that would mean i would have to return the whole statue....so i just mentioned the defect on my original portrait and they sent me a replacement ASAP.....but it was defective so thats the end of it....i will just have to fix my original portrait myself.

These base are so fragile especially with all these pointy flames. Had same issues with dark Phoenix. Wish it was made more solid maybe even use of PVC to commit the potential breakage.

I'm guessing that no one who has/will receive(d) a replacement got an e-mail stating they were "checking with the inventory team?"
Got the same message on my statue.

But, I got the same message with my Green Arrow Exclusive a couple months back, and was later offered a full replacement.

That statue wouldn't peg in at all. This time around its multiple paint flaws on the body and a broken tip. Different issues, so we'll see. I do love my portrait though - would rather not give that up...

This statue has so many qc issues. Must be the cheaper factories for the marvel license statues for the most part judging by history of the marvel women made so far. The DC woman rarely has qc issues.

I have a base defect, but it is hidden. One belt sash was broke. I wasn't worried about the base, just wanted a sash replacement. Sideshow still have me a $20 credit for the base and they are sending a new sash.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Serious question, why was CBG’s ban lifted?

Makes me nervous for Tuesday when I’ll be able to inspect.

This frustrated me. The QC issue, I mean. Companies can take two routes with regard to production -charge slightly more for better quality, or maintain prices and opt for lesser quality.

Sadly, somehow Sideshow has increased prices and opted for lesser quality.

I am always curious of their persistence to categorize defective statues as damaged. I honestly believe that they're filing a shipping claim on all defective items as "damaged" as to recover losses from shipping replacements. That is the only valid reasoning I can come up with as to why they're okay with sh-- quality on 30% of a massive edition size. IDK though.

Smaller editions like this piece seriously need to be done in-house with a premium surcharge. An ES of 150 is so low they could knock that out with their own team.

Edit: Side note about shipping...I always notice my replacement and placed very gently at my door, rather than just dropped. This makes me believe it's noted in the UPS logs that the prior shipment was damaged. How else would this be noted unless a claim had been filed with the shipper? Anyhow.
