    His suit isn't even symmetrical in the film.







    Just chill. Every figure is "off" and not perfect in some way. I found this out with the T-1000 when I bought 5 whole figures. There's always something a tad wrong. I just got my second Batman from CSC and the emblem had a few blemishes on it. I thought about getting all OCD or picking it but it's not even that bad.

    Think of how mass produced and how many figures there are. The variations are endless.

    As long as the suit isn't leaking, the PERS eyes aren't off, the true type body isn't broken and there aren't any major off putting blemishes on the body or the cowl, you're fine.

    Received mine 10 hours ago and found no oils. I took off the paper wrap around the belt to make it contact directly on the suit. After coming back from school in 10 hours, I found a little gooey substance left on the suit. I believe it's from the glue behind the belt. Rorywan mentioned the oils still appear after taking the belt off. I respect what he said, but for my case I think it's from the belt.

    Will try Maglors' method and will update here.
    Mine doesn't look that much asymmetrical, probably just a little bit off but negligible. I think it's fairly well-made. Plus, no leakage whatsoever.

    I was labelled a troll because I disagreed with Superman's likeness. Now that I was proven right, who's going to remove the 'troll' label?

    You do realize there's more potential there than nursing, right?

    it's true. your figure has a lot of flaws. so does mine and so does every figure we own. Asymmetrical abs? There comes a point in time where you just have to realize it;s a mass produced product from Asia and get over it.


    the oil though that's a real problem.

I'd much rather wind up paying double for a guarantee later on. I can justify that.
    I don't blame ya man. Mine had shipped about the time this all came up, I had a short window of time to consider what to do, and it closed on me before I made up my mind. We'll see if I pay the price or not. So far so good, but it's only been several days.

    You sure it's not off cause it's twisted a little to batmans left at the waist? That pic makes it look that way to me anyway, instead of anything in the casting.
