That’s just nuts, smash the whole statue over something so minor? It just goes to show how much those things really cost to sideshow/pcs - that it’s not even worth the a few hundred shipping cost to send it back.

What are they going to do, pay to have you ---- it back, fix it (which many don't want returned statues much less they don't do real repairs), and then pay to ---- it back out? The shipping along is a good chunk of the statue price.

Yeah for that to be fixed the whole statue would pretty much have to be taken down to bare, then started from scratch.

And who wants a repaired statue? Maybe for 50% off?
You can be sure the majority of the "value" of these things comes from our own minds.

Small prediction => Sideshow will tell you to destroy yours and there wont even be a return shipping process just recieving your replacement.
End note => Sideshow have the best cs in the business and I wouldnt worry about replacements they allways come through like professionals in my experience.
Just as I predicted

I went through the same process and I can tell you once they are working your case it can go fast. Once you send the photos you can expect the replacement to ship within about a week.
Also the not paying import fees twice is correct and if for some reason they do try to charge you then yes SS will cover it. I did have to show proof (the email correspondence between you and Sideshow about the replacement, the destroyed item and proof you allready paid import taxes the first time) to DHL and they will handle it with customs. I did take the time to make sure no import fees had to be paid twice eventhough Sideshow would have taken care of it but I feel that's the least I could do for such excellent customer service by Sideshow.
Also, I found the AP replacement to have an even slightly better paintjob though that could have just been random luck.
All in all you should be satisfied with both Goro (which is imo PCS's best statue to date) and the customer service you are recieving (eventhough the waiting times have drastically increased with current Sideshow website problems).

It's all good

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.

Goro is really thin. Since when are statues filled with foam? No one takes issue with this?

Eggshell statues have been a thing for many years now. Considering Goro is still pretty thick and heavy in comparisson to many others. I cant imagine the shipping cost if he was actualy full solid as shipping was allready astronomical as is...
