    Prodimus has come through on the head cast on the TCP-001A Magnus set. He is receptive to the criticisms of the fan community over the molding issues of the international batch, and will be making every effort to fix the issue. While the new head is not as detailed as the old, the face is a vast improvement over the Joker smile of the first. For those who were previously asked to submit pictures of their Magnus faces, Prodimus understands that it is tedious (esp. for mass orders), and will be sending out replacements to all 150 orders. Below is his latest e-mail and pictures.

    The new head looks a lot better. But I still think the original City Commander head is just fine. :)

    Sweet. Glad to see them making the effort to fix this for all the people that bought it. I didn't buy one myself, but I did get pretty upset about it on behalf of those that did. Like they didn't already have enough themselves...

    The "fixed" head looks a ton better. Still, it looks too much like it was hand carved or something. And I am pretty happy with the stock CC head.

    That's the right thing to do. I'm not terribly interested in it, but I'm glad to see people who got it didn't get boned.

    Prodimus is doing the right thing, which is why I think it's such a class act. With this level of customer service, I look forward to future products from SGCollect.
