You guys aren't giving me much confidence.

My Mermaid's out for delivery and I'm honestly dreading it now. Knowing my luck, it'll probably have a million things wrong with it.

ETA: Well, she's here! It didn't come in a special brown shipper and the box was partially opened, so I was expecting the worst... However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the arms slotted in with minimal fuss. Maybe this one had been inspected by someone at Sideshow or something? Either way, she's lovely and I'm very happy with her. The paint job is nearly perfect and I got one with a low number as well!

I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

It's probably my favorite release this year.

Sorry, I should've been more specific.

It came in a plain brown box with a sticker slapped on the side. When I opened it, I noticed that the art box inside had been partially cracked open.

Great looking statue. Had to fiddle with mine to get the arms down, but overall looks awesome. I’ll be getting the whole line.

I got my money back. Sigh. That ended this line quickly for me. Good going Sideshow. The only thing that will bring me back is a re-engineered Little Mermaid.

I received mine with a broken tail and misaligned arms.
Luckily the replacement is perfect in all ways.

This is my first statue from Sideshow and I already ordered Tinkerbell. I like all three of them, but I've still got doubt about ordering Alice. The price is a bit higher and although the service is great (for me) I will probably wait until I got Tinkerbell without any issues. It's just the problem that it has to be available by that time.

Congrats on the perfect Replacement Winjnants_d.

I'm lucky that I'm not interested in collecting Tinkerbell, otherwise I'd be in the same boat with trying to collect them all.)

$40? That's ridiculous. Get a full refund.
