I wonder if the people complaining didn't order the Mario statues in the line or know that the low numbers go to them first.

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

I trust in F4F's ability to knock anything out of the park. When they actually release their statues the ones that they show quality wise to us are the same ones that we get.

I'm sorry but a lot of companies show the best and master painted pieces and show amazing detail. When you get it, a lot of the small details vanish. F4F is top quality to me. That's also the reason why I broke up with most companies. I only order from 2 at this point. Not saying none of the other companies have quality, but they have consistency. I rarely see items from them that are so off the mark that you want to cancel. Plus f4f listens to the fanbase and make changes to make all of their products better.

Only company I know who does that is SS :P Some companies show protos that they don't match up to but they certainly are achievable, just factory fail. SS does some that just can't be reproduced at all :|

You're right though, I think F4F is very consistent. I've never got a bad piece from them. AND they've done a Skies of Aracadia statue. Who else would have done that? Nobody :| HOW CAN YOU NOT LOVE THEM?!

Hmo is quickly rising to the top of my favorite companies to collect from and F4F could possibly join them depending.

I'm also collecting P1 and XM cause they seem to be great as well. SS is unfortunately near the very bottom.

Actually, you are wrong. The lower numbers do not automatically go to the people that bough the Mario Statues in the line because in order to be eligible for the lower number to match there Mario statues they have to have both Mario statues in the line as well as they have to authenticate it with F4F by registering it with them through their authentication process.

Once F4F verifies and authentication then you are eligible to receive a lower number first.

Alex already confirmed many people did not authenticate there Mario statues to be eligible in locking in there low number and he even stated before the validation button went live that many low numbers are still up for grabs.

He said not many collectors use the statue registration feature to lock in the matching numbers and just because someone bought the Mario statues doesn't mean they took the extra step to register them with F4F and Alex comment confirms this.

I would think anyone in the top 10 would authenticate their numbers. Less than a 100 is considered a low number to them. Low numbers doesn't make the statue more valuable. The funniest thing I read is people saying certain numbers are lucky and special to them. I guess we all have to have a little crazy in us to spend so much on this hobby though.
