I've seen a lot of people dissatisfied with first 4 figures for the same kind of terrible qc issues. Why are companies hiring people that obviously are poorly skilled and/or apathetic to the products they are shipping out?
Honestly I don’t think Prime has been at their best for at least 2 years now. It’s just that their original reputation is still holding strong with a lot of people.

But that’s not to say their pieces aren’t great, because they are. It’s just that they’re not perfect anymore... if they ever were. I still have early Arkham pieces, and even they as impressive as they may be, also have their own minor problems.

But as far as I’m concerned there is no perfect statue. I have 80+ statues (1/4 and larger) and replicas in my collection and not a single one is what I would call prestine, but maybe a few come close. I would say at least half my collection if not more has some kind of QC issue, many which I know there are ‘collectors’ who would’ve definitely sent them back to the retailer etc.

However when it comes to movie based pieces collectors and many others are far less forgiving when there is a slight drop in the paint app quality, then they are with most comic book based items.

Iím sure that the owner must have fixed it by now.

Oddly enough there are so many collectors who straight out refuse to read the instructions.

I always double check even when itís obvious, just in case.

Well spotted. I spotted the odd line in the hair. I hadn't considered the goggles aspect.
I still wonder how that piece got out, since Prime 1 haven't ship the piece yet?

I asked Prime 1 about this, and they replied:
I am not sure If customers from China already got the statue,
we have not started shipping the orders from our official website yet. Regards, P1S

Expect that to change as they haven't even started to ship orders from the Prime 1 web site yet.

EDIT: Received email today from Prime 1 on 11/22 that final charge is in one week and shipment will occur in 1-4 weeks.

Great news.

I guess Sideshow customers (like myself) will have to wait about 4 weeks (atleast) on top of the time Prime 1 direct customers have to wait.

Got email from Prime 1 that I’ll be charged final payment in one week. This is my first Prime 1 piece, and first statue I’ve bought in a couple years, looking forward to it.
