    Black plastic aside (which is the case of all the latest figures, I have similar problems with the afore)... has anyone realized that the figures are lighter?

    I will try to verify this with a...

    Laser-Lot has it as well. I am canceling my credit card, therefore canceling my 2013 subs. I refuse to pay for such inferior products. I'll just get Ram Man and the remaining original MOTU for a...

    Seriously, such engineering is all about tiny spaces.

    Chemically, no. But if the plastic itself is really old stock, it can obviously age (getting sticky, brittle, etc) sooner.

    The main problem is that these figures are now 100% display pieces, aka...

    That's what I said a couple of days ago in the Vykor arrival thread. I initially liked my Vykor figure but I ruined his shoulder just by gently posing him for display! I can confirm that this is the...
