Post Tips or Maintenance Suggestions on a Kfir Merlaub Statue

Hello everyone!
I'm very new to this site and to collecting statues.
I was extremely lucky last year of buying my very first statue of a 1/4 scale custom Spawn (movie version) in the memory of my brother since he was a hardcore spawn fan.

As much I love the statue, there is some signs of very small paint chipping in the most random places. I am for sure going to find a way to get that taken care of; recently sent a email to VinceVell Customs. My question to the community is, is paint chipping very common and is there any maitanence preventive measures for it? I've been looking around for ideas and lately I've just been doing a weekly cleaning with a soft bristle make-up brush and also recently purchased a air purifier for any dust build up.

Just feels very disheartening for something you cherish a lot and (very expensive) just randomly have paint chip away.

Any advice would be much appreciated. Going to post pictures of the statue very soon.

Maybe I am not seeing what you are seeing in those pics. To me they are not random chips... they are chips on the tips of protruding sculpt, which easily happens either during shipping, or accidentally rubbing/brushing up against something during cleaning.

I'm extremely careful when handling the statue and clean with a soft bristle make-up brush. There's more on the center in the inside of the cape. Vince Vell recently wrote back to me saying it possibly might be no or very little primer.
