    Is your Avion Staff badly painted?

    Well Mattel did it again! I'd like to use taboo words but I'd like to stay here with you on the org so just imagine...
    There's no reason and no excuse at all for this horrible mess...
    We are in the same situation of the Black Plastic Morbo... will they never learn?
    Why they casted the Avion Staff in translucent blue? WHY?

    Because they are cheap and do not care about their finished product.

    Exactly, that's what Toyguru calls 'high end collector items'...

    I won't have mine for a week or so, but I seriously hope not....I can't stand it when I pay for something this expensive and straight out of the package paint chips off.... The paint chipped off the handle of my Draego Flame Sword and I was ******....this is why most of the time I miss my MOSC collection....no worries about loose joints, not worries about chipping paint off of anything....

    I guess I will be getting a second Icer after all, just in case the paint chips off, I can have a Mint Icer in the package. I bought a second Octavia because for one I had to fix my loose ones really bad ankles, and in case her tentacles ever loosen.

    I have two Hordak staffs....one the paint flaked right off of, the second, I can't chip it off for anything....but then again my Teela staff from the Weapons pack has a paint flake issue too, so does my Sy-Klone ring, and the small sword that comes with MAA.

    This can all be factored into my condition poll too when I get it up over the next few days.
    Recent.... Spirit of Grayskull
    Coming....
    Wanted.... NA She-Ra, Jitsu, Perfuma, Masque, Crita & Vultak
    Considering....
    Needed.... Dragstor & the new Filmation line.

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    Why does he bother posting those videos make such exagerrated claims. I have figures that now have loose joints just by them standing upright in a display cabinet. I started my collection 6 months ago.

    Maybe doomsday is coming very soon, if that's what he meant.

    Or it could have been a massive joke on us. He did pick up Roboto, after all.

    Looks like they cast it as the same time as his Icicle.

    I have to be honest...I could care less about the Staff of Avion. But stripping the paint off of mine and making an Ice Staff for Frosta? Yea now we are talking!

    I will report on how mine is painted when it arrives though for the purpose of this poll. And hopefully to avoid issues like this in the future

    Maybe just predicting the final years of the line....

    I am getting a MOSC Icer as an extra, my sub one is getting opened, and I may do this myself but for Netossa....since the figure the damn thing was made for, can't hold it.

    How much less could you care? For comparison's sake.

    On another note, these won't last forever, especially if you have kids. I may have to pick up Icer along with NA He-Man.

    Not sure if I can give you a comparison, but perhaps a clarification will help. My plan originally had been to toss it in the parts bin. If Stratos could actually hold it I probably would have given it to him, but he can't. But if there is translucent blue plastic that looks like ice underneath, it makes it more worthwhile for me for use with a character that I actually like.

    Hopefully I didn't tick off the whole Staff of Avion faction

    I typically paint over any gold weapons with a clear light gloss/sheen...it keeps them from chipping due to the poor choice of paint by the poor Chinese sweatshop workers that paint these.

    Just opened Icer today, but the staff seems 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.

    Mine arrived unchipped.... but so did my Hurricane Hordak. Now whenever I pick him up, it's a micro-glitter parade.
    Classics TGR figures should be Filmation-based, but they NEED MORE COWBELL!

    because of this poll I was worried. But it's just fine.

    Now, I'm not saying I am not a little scared it'll chip, or wear but I think I'm ok.
