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

    How did your August 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!

    August 2013 Figures were:

    Castaspella (sub)
    Shokoti (Filmation sub)
    Stondar & Rokkon (SDCC)
    Spirit of Hordak (8/7)
    I will count Spirit of Hordak for those that have bought him at the August appearance(s)....(and will do so for each month he appears)
    (Note: The Mini Masters are not MOTUC, so I didn't include them in this poll)

    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'd vote if I were to keep them MISB / MOSC still.


    My look at the figures:

    Castaspella has looser ankles, but mostly where they rock a little between ratchet spots, not floppy or anything, and same goes for Shokoti. Other than that, both are great figures.

    Stonedar & Rokkon also arrived in perfect shape. And I did not need another SOH, so I didn't buy one.

    The Casta I opened has a knee pin that isn't pushed all the way through.

    My Shokoti's top is glued on crooked.

    Casta is easily repaired and I'm hoping Shokoti will be too.

    Casta was perfect, right ankle is getting loose though.

    Shokoti has loose ankles!

    My Castaspella's hypnodisc was broken at the joint and fell to the floor as soon as I opened the package. I'll be calling Matty today...

    If "loose ankles" was available I'd vote. Other than that though, good stuff.

    minor paint app issues on Casta. Not dealbreaker, but still unfortunate.

    Everything else fine.

    Noticeable enough I'll probably touch her up. I thought the yellow would scrape off her blue pants, but afraid they are both paint over black.

    Shokoti had slightly loose ankles. Castaspella had a very slight bobble head. Stonedar and Rokkon were great.

    Overall a satisfactory month.

    Vote for "figure issues" that is what that is for, then explain in reply, or not. The definitions of each voting option is in the first post. But if it's not enough to bother you, just pick the satisfactory option.

    My Castaspella is fine aside from looser ankles just between the ratchet spots, but not enough to make her topple, but Shokoti was a little looser, but the ankles were the only issues.

    Stonedar and Rokkon were great, and every time I look at them on the shelf or in my son's hand "flying" around in comet form, I smile. Shokoti is great, can't complain.

    My Rock Men and Casta are perfect, but my Shokoti has some slightly sloppy paint apps. Of course, I'm a bit more particular about my female figures! Luckily, I have a second one coming to me from a member here, since I wanted an extra Darkling (or two...).
    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

    My Castaspella and Shokoti are both great with the exception of suffering from loose ankle syndrome.

    Castaspella was perfect. The ankles were actually tight, which was a pleasant surprise.
    My first Shokoti was a real mess paint wise. I'm not that picky, but this one was bad, so I sent it back. It had black paint on her legs, gold paint on her face, and one eye was much bigger than the other. My replacement is excellent. There's a slight give to her ankles, but she stands fine.
