Watch rafs vid what he does to his is what is basically missing. Honestly it feels more sideshow quality than ECC, I'm not sure what's going on at the factory but their standards have definitely dropped on the last couple of pieces (maybe they lost some of their top painters?)
And this is coming from a long time supporter of ECC and someone that is quite forgiving of 'defects' these are way too bad and many to forgive
For all those saying that Im a MUDSLINGER and troll, Which most know I am any thing but, this collector just summed up pretty much every complaint Ive heard from other collectors and a few new ones, which is why Im so glad I cancelled. I agree, ELITE is usually 3 steps ahead of every other company for quality and especially superior paint apps, NOT SO with this one. I have a gizmo statue Im selling at cost do to the fact I will not be getting the new statue to go with it. If interested send me a PM. Brand new, original boxes and all. Impressive melted gremlin I will say. Cheers

It was better if they shipped the printer separate so they could mold Mohawk in one piece and collectors would't have this problem.
Or they should have shipped him with a standard base like the ECC Gizmo or the Neca Mohawk, so you could buy the printer as an optional piece.

Nice pics Mr.THX it looks good to the casual observer, but it’s when you look close it fails for me. Paint detail is poor (it’s more like a ss or hcg paint job) and the joints are so obvious especially from the back. If you look inside the mouth you’ll probably see a nice big seam in there also, just like mine. Don’t get me wrong it’s not terrible and if it’d been 1k cheaper and come from ss then even acceptable, but after having owed numerous other pieces from Ecc this is nowhere near their usual standard. I’m gutted as they were by far my favourite company.

no way is it a low quality paint job. The detail and paint work is amazing. maybe they should have added a bit of gloss on the face area, and a bit more detail on the ears. like raf's paintjob. it's not far.

no where near hcg or sideshow in my view.
