Frustrating

I love this line, but I'm really beginning to get tired of the inconsistent/poor paint apps. I'd rather spend $10-$20 more on each statue for more consistent paint jobs. It just seems like DS is cutting corners to keep these priced low. I'm at the point where I need to go to multiple stores to pick out the statue I want with the best paint apps. This Wolverine is bad across the board around the mask/nose. Yet, the movie Thor/Venom and Aquaman turned out real nice for me. I can deal with some imperfections, but they need to clean up the QC issues with the paint apps.

I was tempted to purchase the Wolverine but ultimately decided against it. After see the paint application around the mask/nose, I’m glad I didn’t pull the trigger.

Luck of the draw, I guess? My Wolverine was just fine, paint-wise, and I didn't really give it the once over in the package at GameStop. The same with my X-23 Wolverines (masked and unmasked). Obviously, QC is a bit hit-or-miss with this line, but overall I've been satisfied even allowing for a few minor goof-ups.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

This is pretty much the way I feel about the DC line, I was all in till I started to see them in hand. Some are ok and some are complete garbage.
