    Per TOYGURU's Request: Photos of chipped, scraped paint on black plastic! POST HERE!

    MOD NOTE: Everyone - let's reserve this thread JUST for pics - no chatter, please. There is already a thread dedicated to the black plastic issue. That way it's a much more clear tool of the issue and defects. Thanks!

    If you have the same issue - post a pic. That's more powerful than just posting saying you have the same issue.

    I circled the black plastic chipping off from Vykron... The paint on his thighs is paint from the loincloth (which is another possible QC issue with Vykron, but we're talking black plastic issues here.)
    FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Now I need a Crita!! Crita is to Mara what Evil Lyn is to Teela. If we ARE getting Mara, then we NEED Crita.

    Those are my Vykron pics. Thanks for posting. Fwoosh said the Snakemen 2 pack do not have the black plastic bodies so here's hoping this mistake is corrected for future figs.

    small update, after taking the first batch of pics and reading the small banter (poopy pants vykron) that was edited to streamline the topic with just pics of the black plastic, I decided to make a more thorough check on his legs. A piece of his ball joint is flaking off... (I barely fiddle Vykron due to the Black Plastic Issue...)

    My Dragon Blaster Skeletor has it. Paint scratched right off the hands when I put the sword in, revealing black plastic.

    This happened with my Spiker after the first time I bend the knee (it almost felt as if the color wasn't try before the parts were assembled - understandable what I mean?)

    Please post "black paint" images in this thread

    Guys,

    I've heard you loud and clear about the black plastic base color. I have brought this up to design but there is not much we can do without images.

    The best thing you can do is post images here of any paint chips or issues with the black plastic. Please do not post commentary or remarks. I just need a place I can send design to view images and the more straight images without having to weed through comments will make their job easier.

    So if you have images, please post them here and I will direct design to review!

    Since there is already a thread, I merged the two.

    I just checked my Vykor and Spikor.

    Vykor is not bad, despite being posed and manipulated. Just a couple of black spots on his arms. Spikor, which had been taken out of package and laid on a table till today, has signs of wear despite the lack of use.

    Bent the left knee and he's already missing paint.




    Black paint showing through around shoulder joint (not a powerful camera, so it more pronounced than in the photo). This doesn't bother me as much since it's not noticeable with normal posing, but it's there.

    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    This is my Spikor, not played with. A few of these problem areas were here when he arrived, and the rest appeared later.

    Please stop this malpractice of using black plastic on this high end collector action figures. Where is the high end expertise, quality and control from Mattel with these products? This is my Spikor as arrived.

    The Mighty Spector himself? Tough to see amidst all the dark purple, but he is starting to chip away to black I fear...

    Here is my DB Skeletor that just arrived

    Attachment 79015
    Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.
