    The black stain on Netossa's net.

    After the swapped forearms for Frosta, Mattell has another great design choice: the black stain on Netossa's net.
    On the left the Fwoosh review and on the right the Pixel Dan review:


    We're so lucky that they improved the quality as they promised during the subscription campaign!

    Another "that's the only Netossa produced so take it or sell it"?

    To me it looks like the "dent" in the net prevents her head from tilting forward, the hair gets a little bit more space in the back. I also think the dark spray brings out a nice shadow effect under her hair, brings out some contrast. The cape would look very flat without any weathering. The dark spray could have been applied a little differently though, but I'm not really ready to call foul on this one, or bring out the sarcasm-arsenal

    Meh, this won't hurt my enjoyment of this figure at all. It's on the back, under the hair.

    So we've seen one figure with a QC issue, so that means every figure has a QC issue?

    So we're sure that this is with 100% of the figures that will be sent out?
    Right or wrong, buying a sub tells Mattel you want more MOTUC figures. Not buying does tells them you don't. Don't let MOTUC end early because you might not like their marketing strategy! Plus polls show you won't regret subbing!

    One of the true fan minority - happy MOTU fans!

    I started this thread because it's on two figures, on the left the Fwoosh review and on the right the Pixel Dan review...
    I hope that it's a samples issue but...

    I think it is likely intentional, probably an attempt at shading or something.
    It is spelled "Crita", not "Critta". Misspell her name and Crita will knock the "T" out of you!

    Also...get her into the line!

    I'm not even slightly bothered by this...
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    I have seen two different kinds of Plastic "Melt" when the touch for a period of time. It has happen to some of my figures that were put away for storage. It is usually the more rubbery stuff touching a harder plastic which is what is going on here. Some one should try scratching the black spot and see if any black paint comes off. I fear there is some kind of reaction going on here.

    Not a chemical reaction. Both the indentation and the black spot are there in the NYCC photos. No one noticed THAT black spot at the time because it's barely noticeable and looks like a shadow - its intended purpose (although why we need shading there is a different story. Her hair would cause a natural shadow on the cape anyway). Looks like this just came out wrong on the production end. Looks weird to me and it's unfortunate :b

    Of couse, if it is merely an overspray of paint to create shading:

    1) why not apply it strategically all over to give dimension to the whole cape?

    and

    2) why make it black when all you needed was a slightly darker shade of blue?

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