Neat looking piece. I'd like to see F4F obtain the MGSV licence.

No. We all know every statue comes machined and painted differently. These company's usually state that somewhere. Your piece in question would have been machined or hand cut. It isn't hard to cut that pvc straight in an assembly line. My advice is go to your local hardware store or Walmart type place and buy some very fine sand paper. If @ hardware store ask them what grit's good for plastic/pvc and do it yourself. Start on the taller side, take your time and eye it. Don't go nuts just sand where the wobble goes away. Problem solved.

The Lithium battery didn't work when I first put it in, I'm assuming it's because it needs to be charged. Not going to really use it though as I worry about batteries being in my statues for long periods of time and potentially cause leakage.
Correct. I'm going to take the chance and keep it in but if you haven't noticed there is no brand or label on the battery which can be suspect. My P1 Bayformers usually come with batteries and they die within a few weeks without even being on. Cheap junk China brand batteries.

yes

when my friend got his, we put the batteries in and nothing. Plug it in a for a few mins, then it worked without being plugged in anymore.


For that wobbly rod...
Looks like it is the rod itself, can you heat it up and bend it more straight?
If for some reason it is the uneven top causing the ammo box's weight to shift, thus wobbling, maybe can try sanding down the top of the peg to be more flat.





Also when I spoke of "snow flaking off", I was not talking about a whole mound or piece coming off, just little /lots of sprinkles.




Idea I have to the clear rod without an ammo box. Need to make an extra little snowMOUND that can be placed over it like a little cap.



Lastly, the old/original/extra head, i told my friend he should get that repainted with like the skull paint over him or something along those lines.

My Solid Snake arrived on February. The young head had a painting error and I asked for a replacement.

Today (1 month since I asked) I received the replacement in perfect condition.

Great experience with F4F, fair and respectful behavior.

Thank you F4F, awesome attention and awesome statue.

What was the paint error if I may ask?

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.

So I got my statue and it seems to me like the "young" sculpt has a overly dark five o clock shadow going on, only on the jaw though. I contacted them and the admin brushed it off saying nothing was wrong, refusing a replacement, even though I've watched videos on YouTube where the sculpt has no shadow, and my other sculpt has a much lighter tone in the same area. I dunno why they would put any facial hair shading for mgs1 snake anyways. I dunno how to feel about this exactly, it looks weird, like he has mutton chops or something.

Sorry, I forgot your message. The paint error was a mustache in the "young head". Snake doesn't have one in the game.
