I remember when Sideshow inspected one of my replacements, and it showed up missing the corner feet at the top of the box and untapped Styrofoam halves. Good times.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking too. Would it be a waste of my time if I contacted them to see if they would inspect the initial piece before they sent it out? Because honestly, they shouldn't be shipping any more of these until they can ensure everyone gets a good one like this newest one posted.

That's exactly what I did for my replacement. I emailed them and told them to check that head and make sure she fits in her base.

I haven't ordered though. I mean like asking them to check the portrait before it's even sent the first time to avoid having to go the replacement route.

The head is a solid improvement, but the body it went on still looks so bad in color. His suit is REALLY not white compared to the cape.

This statue is overall a color blending/matching disaster.

People, don't even think for one second a white suited Storm is going to look any better if she comes with a fabric cape. Good thing I have no interest in owning another white suit Storm..for many reasons.

I absolutely agree. Everyone knows you should never combine cream with white, it just looks like your cream is a dirty white fabric. The bluish shading is not helping either.
