This is overpriced shipping. Most top retailers is about USD$300-$320

Singapore to North America via FedEx or DHL can easily run 500 SGD (i.e., $360 us)

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.

My Thor SS has perfect teeth, Im sure if SS factory can paint teeth right, XM can do it also.

And dont start me on -this is hand painted- or -nothing can be perfect-
You must be kidding...Thor breaker of brimstone has the worst teeth in the hobby. THE WHOLE FREAKING HOBBY.

Dark Phoenix Saga is my favorite comic book story, I can answer that!

The bird is accurate as in the original story panels below, so XM got that right, but the color is wrong. Dark Phoenix uses PINK psychic energy, not fire.



In the original storyline before retcons and reinterpretations Phoenix IS Jean. She only becomes Dark Phoenix because Mastermind and Emma Frost corrupt her. So Dark Phoenix can do whatever she did as Phoenix including using the bird. She almost never has actual fire aside from a cover or two like UXM #134, the issue she transforms in (DP is only in UXM 134-137, just FOUR issues). She died in 137 and years later it was retconned into “The Phoenix Force” and it’s been altered to ridiculousness since then and at some point between promo art, flashbacks and revisits the pink energy became fire.
