    It's all about the labor, gang. The cost of the materials is minimal compared the cost of the labor: setting-up and running the injection molding machines, assembling the pieces, and painting them....

    The problem is, the giant doesn't want to fight...they'll just drop off. I experienced this firsthand this weekend when I gave my subscription partner his half of last month's figures. He was so...

    We need to make it THE issue. Please if you have not posted photos of your figures that have paint scrapped away and black plastic showing underneath, please post them in this thread....

    My biggest concern is that they have been unclear as to whether "fixing the problem" means "stopping the use of black plastic." I do not want a fix that includes the continued use of black plastic...

    Please post pics in the other thread. For some reason, in this case, photos speak louder than our words here.

    I would think it is cheaper to mold in the correct color than to paint over it, but there must be some financial reason they are doing this. Besides having to buy the paint, they have to pay for the...

    Here are some quick pics showing the bad paint coverage on the shoulder joints. This is the case in point why molded color should always be used on joints....color coverage and wear. (I haven't even...

    I first found out about this when a fellow 'orger contacted me to fix his Vykron that had a "black mark" on his face. After closer examination, I saw that it was not black paint but that the flesh...

    Just sent an email to RGD regarding the black plastic. Hopefully, they will address this issue with TG. I'm just hoping this isn't standard practice moving forward. Painting a piece of plastic costs...

    Has anyone addressed the painting over black plastic issue with TG yet? What is his response?

    I'm very annoyed that his limbs are painted and not molded color. In fact, the joint areas of both shoulders are not completely covered in "flesh tone" paint and the black is visible. We need an...

    I did not notice this on Spikor but I have not opened my Vykron (Tank Version) yet. Just for the sake of paint rub on any figure, the joints should at least be molded in their base color. But if...
