    One of mine has tape, which I will open. I didn't see any on the other one, but I'll look again.

    I had tape on both sides of mine. As I tore it open I briefly thought to myself, "If I were a MOC collector this would probably bug me."

    Stratos Quality Control problems

    I am kind of upset. I FINALLY got my Stratos today (ordered him just after noon the day he went on sale).

    The paint apps stink, compared to He-Man, Skeletor, Beast Man and Faker (got him at NYCC). The paint on his belt is smeared, the paint from the feathery part of his harness is smeared onto the non-painted part. And the wings were put in place too far back... so when you have his arms in a normal position, all you see are the back of the wings.

    The worst thing is that the joints are loose... he's like a rag doll.

    He can barely stand... He can't hold his arms up at ALL.. the shoulder joints are THAT loose.

    the legs are barely poseable because the hip joints are bad.

    Should I call and ask for a replacement? Is anyone else having this problem?

    I dont' have a camera right now, but if I can I will.

    Maybe you can but I"m nervous too.

    a. if it is indeed holding the bubble on there I dont' want to as I have an MOC collection.

    b. i'm worried it'll rip off the cardboard with the tape.

    I hope so too. I wish I had ordered 2 now, but I figured I would wait until they do him as a bonus with reverse colors (blue wings, red jet - like my original vintage figure)

    I did think the paint job wasn't quite has good this time. The abdomen of mine has red belt paint on it... which i find odd because you'd think it would be painted before it was constructed. Totally get what you are saying about the finger nails. Head was perfect though. Wings are too far back, but other orgers have already addressed how to easily fix this so i'm not that bothered about that.

    My joints have been fine so far with every figure though...i mean they get looser as I handle him, but I've found that with any action figure with this sort of articulation.

    The ball joint on my Stratos is very loose making him become a bobblehead.

    Everyone seems to be complaining about the position of the wings. I think they are fine how they are. It's like a bird....when not flying, the wings are tucked back, but when Stratos is flying, the hands are turned with the wings perfectly in front.

    I noticed the same thing...so when I took his head off to put a rubber band over the ball joint (what skeletor had), I noticed the seams were split on either side of the neck, which is what's making it loose. Is yours like that?
    Mine also has a very loose left foot. So I've also wondered about sending mine back, but I think it's stuff I could fix myself, so no need to go through the hassle.

    I'm also okay with the wing placement, doesn't bother me too much.

    Ditto, everything is cool with mine. Sorry to hear yours has so many problems at one time! Seems like the figures are either perfect or piled with a bunch of problems at once.

    Yeah.....I never noticed the clear rubber band that Skeletor has on the ball joint until you posted this. Stratos doesn't have the rubber band....and yes, I seem to have the problem with the seams split, although it's more noticeable on Strato's right arm than it is on the left side.
