BA He-Man with extremely loose ankle joints. Haven't had one this bad since the first issue of Beast Man. Disappointing, because otherwise he's a great figure.
Selected art prints now available:
My Battle Armor He-Man was a bobblehead, just like Goddess. Shot some superglue in the neck hole...seems okay now.
Well I just got off the phone with Matty - about 30 minutes give or take, I told them of all of the problems i have with the Adora figure, sloppy paint, bobbleheadedness, paint bleeds, warped ankle joint to the point where the ankle cannot be used, the seperating heel and the whole one leg being about 2 cm shorter than the other leg. She took my information, confirmed my shipping address, kept putting me on hold to talk to her boss, then eventually came back gave me a new ticket number and told me I'd be contacted either by phone or email within 72 hours on how my replacement Adora will be shipped.
I hope that they send me one - I've never had to call and complain to any company before, let alone for issues this massive. I'm hoping for the best, but given all the things I've read about returns/replacements from Matty here on the org I'm not entirely hopeful.
My BA He-Mans just arrived along with my extra Adora. All look great...only one QC problem with BA He-Man. On both of mine, it appears he has a thin right eyebrow and a thick left eyebrow. I'm sure the eyebrows on all the figures are painted by machine, which can explain this small problem, but it looks kinda weird. Other than that, I'm happy with them! Great job 4H and Mattel!

I hope I am not the only one that got a 2nd rrSkeletor with an absoulte horrible face paint job!!
The yellow paint looks like it was done by a 4 year old!!
No man really this is not acceptable .... anyone else with the same issue ?

pics or it didn't happen.
I have him displayed at work and considering he is already sold out, I am not going to attempt to return him or get another one. He looks fine from a distance.
Man, I hope mine doesn't look like that. I have one I should be receiving today, so I will let you guys know.
I got one with an almost solid green face. I actually kind of like it. Looks like some kind of varient. And I'd LOVE to post pictures for you all, but no digital camera and my camera phone isn't going to cut it.
You'll just have to imagine it for yourselves.
great I was just anxious, now I'm nervous and anxious thanks , I'll post pics when I get mine which is hopefully between 5-6pm(est) today

Of my 2 BA He-Mans, only one right ankle was tight. All 3 remaining ankles were loose. One of my 2 Adoras has 2 right feet.
I dont see that as horrible for their faces...If you want to compare, here are some images with good resolution for the 1st release Skeletor...
Just got mine and here's what it looks like:
*edit* Just noticed the hood has a blotchy paint job, and that's the only "problem" I have with the figure, love the pain app on the face though. Here's a pic of the hood:

I just opened the white box, and the paint on the face is messed up. Am I just being picky? I feel like for $20, it should be perfect. If a retail line was painted this sloppy, ones like these would stay on the shelves.
This honestly makes me want to skip the on-sale days and just get the toys on ebay. I'd be paying more, but at least there would be a picture of exactly what I am getting.

EEEAGH!! Good god, that's horrible! Yeah, I'd totally send that one back and get another, if it's easy enough to do. Of all the Skelly pics I've seen, I haven't seen one with a paint job that bad.
Skeletor needs to clean that skull once in awhile! I mean, there isn't any more dead flesh, but the sucker still gets moldy....

Alexx has a blog?! Come on in and check out Toys and Tomfoolery! You won't regret it...until the next morning.
No, you are NOT being picky. That is an awful paint job.
I just got my two and they look about the same. NOT happy at all. They should have left the face yellow and outlined it in green. The buttons on his armor are all sloppy painted with a couple not even painted at all. It does **** me off with the price you have to pay for these to have this kind of quality. I understand mistakes happen but these mistakes are on both of them. I can only imagine how many more are not up to par.
