I think the line up is Martian Manhunter, Donna Troy, Catwoman, and then Batman. Might have a couple of them switched around.

That said with the factory pumping out the replacement Supermen I’m wondering if all the statues got pushed back by a month or two. Martian Manhunter might be at a different factory since Chad said they had to find a different one that could handle the switch out head correctly. No biggie if they did, will be worth the wait.

I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

Some of the best statues I’ve seen don’t require action poses with loud complex bases. The angle and look of the face, the poise, the little touches that capture expression and the simplicity of a base that compliments the pose can be all that is needed for perfect art direction. We’ve seen it with Sideshow and Bowen pieces, and I’m seeing it in this Superman piece.

To answer a few questions up front.

1. We will be remaking them all, not just a few or a few hundred.
2. I believe we are remaking all the boxes and Styrofoam, I can't expect my distributors as well as you guys to unbox everything and rebox it.
3. If you're interested in getting on a wait list, please email Debbie. I definitely don't want to use this as an opportunity to sell more pieces, but I know we did have a few left on this run and will have some on the next run.

As mentally draining as this has been, I cannot tell you guys how much reading your posts of support have meant to me. I don't know if this kind of recall has ever been done before and honestly, I'm still trying to wrap my heads around it. I'm JUST glad this happened in 2018...so it can be under the "lessons learned" column in stead of "new lessons learned.

I'll fill you in tomorrow! See you at noon on our fb page.
Damn. THAT is QUALITY! I never heard of a company going that far to rectify an issue. I wish every one of the other companies had the same ability to see a mistake and then CORRECT said mistake instead of making excuses and/or blaming the customers. ( I've seen this in a lot of business and really it grinds my gears, but the Karma feedback loop from that is enough satisfaction from me.) I have a lot of respect for your decision and appreciate your forthright manner in dealing in business this way. I hope your company sees much prosperity in the future and you continue to do right and put outstanding work in the hands of collectors for years to come.

Finally opened mine. Paint is sloppy on the logo, belt and hair outline. Foot doesn’t go flush in the base. Cape is harder to attach to the regular head. Mine is the first where the yellow circle on the logo wasn’t painted.

Opened mine yesterday too. First, let me say that this is a fantastic piece and I really like it, but I have the same QC issues that have already been brought up. The cape not fitting on the right shoulder and the paint bleed on the belt buckle are the most prominent. The cape bothers me the most because the cast does not match the design we were shown (pointed edges vs. flat edges). I have a few nitpicks with the paint here and there, like with the edges of the emblem, but I can live with those. I'm glad Chad is going all out to correct this - a truly stand up guy. Honesty and accountability are hard to come by these days. I love this company and I still stand behind their products because these are very fixable issues and when all is said and done, this will be one incredible piece to display.
