Found some really great pictures of the production piece. Shoutout to HHamajippa @ twitter for the pictures.

The whole piece looks really amazing and Kinetiquettes really did nail the colours. But this guy also has the effect broken off at the same spot ffs. Can't wait for mine to arrive to see for myself how it is packaged and why it causes to break on everyones statue lol.

Yeah once you see the packaging you'll understand why it happens. It was inevitable. I think someone would have to be lucky for it not to happen. There's way too much tension in that area and not enough protection to prevent the breakage.

Thanks for keeping the discussion going everyone. Just to add on here. We are actively working towards sending out replacements for breakages. Including sideshow orders. This is something that slipped under our radar during drop tests. Yes we do do drop tests for every project. But sometimes a project comes along that's quite complex like Dizzy where its difficult to catch during drop tests or things may have happened during the making of the foam packaging mold where a slight change affects shipping greatly. We also are going to implement additional drop test to rectify this in future projects.

For Mai and Terry it was for the worse, but Dizzy's face looks much better in the final version so I'd say this one was a win and a rare situation of being better than the prototype.
Thanks for the compliments. We are trying to do better with each release. We always state that "things may be changed improved during production ".But it not very fair to the hard working team to say its "rare" for our final product to be better than prototype. We have always improved things during production to be better than what was shown.So far, we have had great feedback for all our releases including Terry. For Mai, we have had mostly positive reviews being our first 1/4 female statue. But ofcourse we know we can do better or should've done better for her.

We have also had changes imposed by licensors mid production so there were some things beyond our control and we have taken steps to avoid such things from happening again in future. Moving forward, we will keep striving to be better for you, the customer. Thanks again for your continued support.

Any idea when we will see the Ky Vs Sol piece? Will it be 1/4?

I'm pretty desperate for a GG piece at this point.

I must have missed this post as I just now read it. Is there a form we need to go to to get replacements? I am guessing I can't do it anymore because Sideshow gave me a small partial refund, but they had told me there was no replacement parts at the time.

Guilty Gear Strive is pretty damn hype. Hoping for Kinetqiuttes to make Ramlethals T H I C C thighs into polystone.

My Dizzy will arrive this month. I'm so happy about it.
