Thank you for the close up.
That does look like the topography from 3d printing. Is it easily noticed?

Should have been smoothed down before going into the final mold.

The paint issue though, what I see in the photos are perfect circles of solid paint, that is terrible. They dont want to talk paint because they think its just people being nitpicky, but they need to see a picture of that, because that is a serious factory mess up.

I sent them multiple pictures with different lighting even with arrows pointing at the issues and quote: "We did not see any major flaws based on the highlighted areas in your photo"...

I made another mega picture with collection of other people's Sif bases and showing the differences, HOPEFULLY this time around they'll think it's an issue, but kinda stranded otherwise right now.

Mine arrived but unfortunatly some paint issues on the butt and a scratch on the base. Also a piece of the tail broken off due to the very strong magnet. Contacted CS and hoping for the best.... Nevertheless awesome statue.

No it's not easy to notice. This picture is extremely zommed in, and the lighting makes it even more obvious. At first I did not notice this issue.

Wow Vinnie,
I originally didn't feel that bad about not getting Artorias, but they look so good together!
Sorry to hear about the tail, I hope it's a clean break.

For future & others--I recommend holding a flat silicone (or any soft) spatula between approaching magnets.

For anyone on Sif exclusive edition waitlist, I was told in June that I was in the top 60 for NA region and my order was converted yesterday.

Seems like a long waiting list to burn through... but I suspect its just 3rd party mark up sellers cancelling order for pre-orders they didnt get.

SD line debut tomorrow. Not crazy about these, but if the price is low enough I'll pick them up.
