    Default Paint problem with SS Stormtrooper hands

    Hi guys!
    I just received my SS Stormtrooper from a guy called legendshobbies*com on ebay. (Really fast shipping from the US by the way).

    Anyway, when I opened the box the first thing I noticed was that the black rubber like paint was scratched on the right gun hand.

    Then after I posed him with the rifle i noticed that paint was falling of from the other hand as well! And i was really careful posing him!

    Is it my copy that's faulty or is this a known problem with this figure?

    known problem, contact Sideshow, maybe they'll send you replacement hands.

    apparently the first stormtroppers had black painted hands instead of molded black rubber/resin or whatever they're made of.

    Thanks guys! So I shouldn't first contact my seller on ebay?
    Is it better to go directly to SS?

    well the seller would just refund you or exchange it if he had another. but sideshow might just send you some new hands if they have any. they're pretty good about stuff like that.

    I got some new molded hands for my Sideshow stormtrooper directly from Sideshow when I sent them an email about it. They're so nice.

    Just touch it up with some flat black paint, no big deal.
