    READ THIS.

    I just want to see some numbers. We all realize its not a scientific poll. No need to show off your intellectual superiority here complaining about it.

    Please do not vote if you haven't received yours yet or if you didn't buy one, OBVIOUSLY.

    This will be a public poll so we can see who voted for what. Please vote for yes, or no for each issue and leave some kind of comment about your experience.


    If you haven't voted and want to see the results just click on, "View Poll Results."

    Thanks for the poll. I will vote when I get mine. I think people are letting 2 or 3 people make them think they are all like that. I want it in hand to judge first.

    From what I read, there were more than 2 or 3.. I didn't count, but looked closer to 6+.. So far.

    Mine has a loose right elbow. It seems like the screw hole is stripped.

    Hopefully this poll stays relevant for the next few weeks. Would love to see all the feedback this figure is sure to generate.

    I don't have in hand, and I'm probably not going to purchase. Will wait for fanstoys.

    However I have read many good things about it so far and the worst reoccurring issue seems to be a striped screw here and there.

    2/6 = 1/3 = 33% chance of being happy so far. :) 

    so i wouldn't say no hope… plus i know two people who said they were happy in the other thread and haven't voted yet.

    yes I'm trying to keep morale up… :p

    Yeah...I feel bad for folks that are getting these with obvious problems...
    I feel blessed that I got a Kronos that really doesn't have any serious issues...good paint, tight joints and hardly any gaps in the seams...his package was perfect, and he looks great in my display.

    Thank you to diecast17, who gave us one of our first reviews of Kronos.


    Also Natroneus and mweeuser stopped by to share their experience.

    We now have 11 samples.

    This, ladies and gentlemen, is how you conduct a poll. I'll be sure to add my feedback if I ever get mine shipped out.
