under different lights mine looks just like that, a little smooty around its center..

good luck tho.. waiting on better pics because mines are honestly horrible and shouldnt be used as basis.. Anyhow, I'll also report back on my replacement body when it arrives as well!
Does she look ok to you though in person never?

I haven't had time to assemble and display mine but I inspected it on the box and it's looking really good to me. It's my 1st Sideshow-made statue, so I might not be a good judge but I wonder if lighting might be affecting too much some of the photos posted here.

I took a few quick photos (with my cellphone) of the regular portrait and it's looking pretty close to the prototype IMHO.
After a quick inspection of the body on the box I think the star looks like slightly worn out - it matches the belt which also has some worn out aspect - but it's NOT looking like some of the photos shared here.
I took a quick photo just for the sake of comparison but I apologize for the shi** picture, I took just one and didn't notice at first it was blurry but it's possible to see the star is not looking bad.

Lastly, the colors on the body are not looking washed out at all on my unit. Maybe some folks were unlucky? I would contact Sideshow on that case.

If you are happy with the piece, at the end of the day that's all that matters

Agreed. Don't let others detract your enjoyment. I love seeing happy collectors with their pieces.

Yes mine is washed out as well just like every other but in person she looks really good. I will try to add better tomorrow. No mildew star or any paint flaws and both portraits are good sooo....

Well, better luck on the star with my SSC replacement body BUT there's more problems on her boot.. I didnt notice it before and my original one has the same overspray but nowhere near as bad as the replacements one..

Gonna ask for another replacement, we'll see..
