So, I wrote this in another thread, but thought it may be interesting on it's own. Lately we have been seeing some heavier then normal delays with figures which have been attributed to factories. 2 such releases were Scoria and Kronos. Both upon final release seem to have similar issues, which becomes evident is caused by the factories themselves (Stripped Screws, Chipped Chrome (Scoria)/bad paint application (Kronos), Lose Joints (maybe not factory), and so forth). Now I know in both instances there were initial visits that occured before the "mass production" phase. But in both cases, I don't believe, or it wasn't posted that there was a QC person on hand from the 3rd Party company during the assembly phase. FansToys has said they will be hiring some one to be at the factory full time to address QC moving forward. My question is, should this be the new norm? I think it should be. I really like FT's approach to this. It seems like these factories don't have any pride in their work, and don't mind spitting out shit. For a $15 toy, that is okay. For a $160-$200 toy, it's definitely not. What do you guys think?
