    Condition of your May 2013 Figures, in good or bad shape?

    How did your May 2013 figures arrive..in what shape?

    This poll is to determine how your new release or new release DOS / Sub figures arrived.

    Where they damaged?,
    Were they missing something or have wrong parts, or paint problems?

    Not for any re-issues that may be released, only for new original monthly figures. Sub or Non Sub

    And the poll is multiple choice, just so you know, pick all that applies to you!

    May 2013 Figures were:

    Karatti (sub)
    Fighting Foe Men 3-pk (sub)
    Spirit of Hordak (5/8 & Early Access 5/14)
    I will count Spirit of Hordak for those that have bought him at the 2 appearances....(and will do so for each month he appears)


    Poll choices:
    Package issues
    Was your figures box or card damaged, or the bubbles?

    Figure issues ("Item issues" for Accessory Packs)
    Was your figure damaged, broken, loose joints, bobble head, or apart in the package, ie head popped off etc....?
    "Item Issues" Items damaged, excessively bent....etc

    Paint issues
    Was your figure not painted correctly, or have globs of paint, or spots in wrong places?

    Missing pieces
    Was your figure missing something, arm, head, accessory etc....?

    Wrong pieces
    Did your figure have 2 left legs, or backwards shoulders etc....?

    Condition was Satisfactory to Perfect
    Best looking figure scenario, decent to perfect for packaged display and for loose collectors alike.

    For "Mint In (Sealed) Package" collectors...you can still vote based on what you see in the package,
    you can tell by a visual inspection, except for a few things, so vote accordingly....and if you are satisfied, choose that option,
    this is how I used to vote as mine were all MISB / MOSC.


    I'm still waiting on my sub figures and SOH....as usual....

    - - - Updated - - -

    I got Foe Men and Karatti, waiting on Hordak to make my selections....But so far of the 2 I got, both were in great shape, and nothing wrong.

    I didnt get a Spirit of Hordak yet (if ever)

    Karatti was fine. If I was brutally honest, there's a very small paint flaw on Karatti's eye socket. I would be much remiss if I didnt admit that some people would care more than I do. But I couldnt in good faith really call it a paint app flaw as a vote.

    Same thing with a very small paint blob on the Talon Fighter pilot's shield. It came off with a little scrape of the fingernail, and is effectively perfect. But again it could irritate some people. But I couldnt vote that way for myself. It was very very minor.

    I just popped the Foe Men out, and Sherilyn has a longer neck peg, and it bobbles badly, as well as a few loose arm joints (plus now that I have her, I really don't like her helmeted head, I wish they included an non helmeted one, of at the very least, made the visor removable like Dawg-O-Tor's...., the other 2 however are just perfect.

    But when I vote I'll be voting figure issues for the Foe Men, but it's only for Sherilyn....


    Not to mention, why in the hell did they not use the articulated thighs on Sherilyn? They did on TOD Sorceress, and they looked just fine.

    Karrati is getting sold, so he's not being opened, but he looks in decent shape.

    Still waiting on my SOH to arrive sometime next week.

    Finally got all 3 in, SOH just arrived today.

    Both Karatti & SOH arrived in great shape, nothing major to gripe about...

    The Foe Men however, not all so great. Dawg & Dittz, are perfect, but as I said previously, Sherrilyn has a bad bobble head, and loose bicep swivels, and looser elbows. Her knees and ankles however, are nice and tight.

    I got in Karatti and he was good throughout. Also Spirit of Hordak had no defects in him...at least not any I could detect.

    Karatti is all around perfect.

    FFM, Talon shield was loose in package and flopping all around, Shieldmaiden's shield has a bald spot in the paint job, one of her arms is bent weird with a gap between the bicep and arm band and she has a bobble head. The other two are fine.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    All with Sherrilyn except the shield is the same as what's wrong with mine, my shield is fine.

    Wow, going by the numbers it seems we're the odd men out. So many with satisfactory to perfect condition...

    Karatti arrived in a dented white mailer which had me nervous. As I remove the figure on card I noticed immediately how the bubble was creased and smashed all along the top, wasn't really happy since I'm a MOC collector but hung him up high to minimize the view of the damage. Honestly though this is the first figure that's ever arrived harmed.

    A lot seem to be content even if there actually is an issue....which makes no sense to me. If a figure has loose joints or a bobble head, paint or packaging problems....it's a defect....plain and simple.

    I made this poll so that if there is an issue with any given figure, it can be shown, but even when I started this poll November 2011, when the Swiftwind leg things came about, the numbers here still didn't reflect the actual posters with the leg issues, many seemed to still say they were happy with the condition on the poll, even if they complained about it elsewhere. That's what this poll is for, it's for the arrival condition of the figures, are they broken, do they have swapped limbs, do they have paint errors....

    You can still vote about an issue the figure has, even if you're content with it....that's why it's multiple choice....even if it was only one poll per figure, it would still be multiple choice for that very reason.

    Out of the package alll my figs were near perfect. In package, both sets Talon shields had come loose and were rolling around inside. The Shield Maiden's Horde plate had come loose in one.

    No issues except in a few packings', some of the FFM's accessories were floating around loose and Sherilyn has a slight mole on her right cheek (hope it's scrape-able. Nothing major.

    Karatti was A-OK!

    So all good here! Still on the hunt for the SOH!

    Some minor paint blemishes on Karatti & Sherrilyn. I'm just glad they finally arrived.
