    This is another QC in a long, and seemingly never-ending line. I'm seriously considering bailing on this line. Too many issues and too many empty promises. No more excuses Mattel & TG.
    Well I think it's pretty obviously NOT a QC problem, but an art decision gone wrong. But we haven't seen the mass produced figure yet, just the early preview examples.

    I posted another question regarding the black spot on the cape in the Ask Matty forum and got the following answer:

    "I have opened up 10 Netossas and not one had this spot. It is not intentional".

    So either he didn't understand my question or not all Netossas have this problem.

    Well, this image from NYCC begs to differ:



    I believe that would've been put out by someone from Mattel?

    It seems to me that maybe they didn't understand the question. It really seems unlikely that this issue was fixed if it showed up in review samples, right?

    Yep. Too many stupid screw ups in this line. Totally unnecessary.

    Just wipe the black off with acetone. I didnt even care because i don't pose my figures looking at the wall, i have them looking out at me from their shelves so i will never see the mark.

    My Netossa has the dreaded "black stain".

    I really don't understand what the intended purpose of this paint application was. If every individual paint application costs Mattel money, then I would have MUCH preferred a "metallic dark blue" overspray on the breast-plate/feathers (similar to the metallic blue used on the peacock design in the centre of the bodice) or a "metallic powder blue" overspray on the skirt (similar to the metallic powder blue of Evil-Lynn's staff) to reference the intended "silver" colour of the skirt and other powder blue parts.

    Other than a strange spot on the forehead and the black stain on the cape, my Netossa is pretty awesome!
