I see what you mean, and TBH I probably wouldn't try to fix it either. Since the clothes are poor quality I would be worried I would tear something taking them off and breaking the suspenders.

Honestly, why did we pay Enterbay the kind of money we did for such a poor quality, but admittedly great looking product? Mine was flawless but I was pretty anxious as the percentage of flawed EB pieces is pretty high. My LCS brought in 4 Batmans and 4 Jokers and sent back 3 Batmen and 2 Jokers. Those are sad numbers IMHO.

i think the best is to buy them from other buys and no directly from EB such as Timcent (ebay). They check before shipping. Sorry, i'm a new collector but i don't think they have a poor quality man !
That Joker is better than the hot toys one ...

I kind of think you answered your question. We paid that sort of money because what it looks like, as that what overrides poor quality because we get so sucked in by looks. IMO we were basically paying for a realistic and most accurate Ledger head sculpt to date, the rest of the figure is poor quality.

Yeah mine was flawless to and you are right that is sad about the returns etc but that is Enterbay for you. As long as something looks nice it doesn't matter to them if it is poor quality because like I said people get sucked in by looks and Enterbay knows that, hence why they do not care about QC. They know the item will sell because what it looks like.

I hope another company comes along and can produce better figures than them with better quality because someone needs to send a message to Enterbay that they should not be allowed to produce such inferior products despite how good they look!

Yep that is where I got mine from.

I can't believe you are saying this when you have a quality control problem which is the shorter leg, a common problem with nearly every 1/4 scale release. Also take a look at the outfit the lapels look like they are about to fly off his coat and the tie is awful.

Apart from the head sculpt, the rest of the figure pretty much pales in comparison to the Hot Toys one as far as quality is concerned. The head sculpt looks more realistic and better paint job and likeness than Hot Toys but that is the only thing better about it. So yes the head sculpt on the enterbay one is better and nicer to look at but the quality of the figure overall including the clothes is poor compared to Hot Toys.

That's why i said i'm a new collector. I have a lot to learn but i'm already happy with them. My Joker is perfect now, i didn't see the shorter leg anymore and i paid it at a very good price.

I've also ordered the 1/4 Hot Toys Batman, can't wait to get it and make the comparison !

Sub par quality with accurate likeness vs good quality with sub par likeness, what a terrible hobby to be in.
