qc has nothing to do with it. in fact, an argument can be made that doing the same thing over and over should make the final product better.

in reality, it boils down to the pride a worker has in doing their job. All of us have co-worker's who don't give a $hit and others who try their best. Why would it be any different in a factory in China.

You also need to mind your own business since you always look to pounce on me for my posts. You are not a mod in this section to kick rocks.
I think its more of a QC issue and becomes a Quality issue. As the Prototypes with SSC tend to have the best painters with the best paint applied. They intentionally dress it up to look its best. Kinda like the gimmicks to add light effect or photoshop the statues to make them pop more in the Ads. Some people mentioned earlier that its not a big deal when they make burgers looks better, but I see it as more of an issue when ur buying a $1000 dollar statue. So rather than having rich full colors, you end up with dull and flat that requires a repaint.

Also the higher the ES size, and poor QC...sloppy paint occurs or whatever happened to Wolverine's teeth in the Wolverine Vs Hulk Dio, plus the other issues propping up.

But people have pointed out that some of the newer ones have gotten better. I haven't heard issues with Gladiator Hulk and I thought Superman looked fine, even tho that weak base and Cape issue is messed up. It also seems like SSC is putting a lot of love into this project so I hope they are also putting the money into it as well rather than cutting corners, as I think a lot collectors fear that.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Also you cant have a forward facing head at all. I think its beyond too late at this point. The neck is turning to the left. It wouldnt match a forward facing head at all.
