    I do not completely agree (EDIT: that, even generally, KO are the same or better than official). There have been some KO that are improvements on all levels (LT-02 is glorious and it wasn't difficult for Honey Badger MPM-08 to blow the official out of the water) but most KO are still KO and cut costs somewhere. Improved KO are very rare. Most of the time, materials. Example: My Hide Shadow oversized Blackout, even though it is an UV coated, magnetically sealed Moducase cabinet, still yellowed in less than 6 months. Crappy materials on an almost a $100 figure that has only been handled once. If it were the same or better, at least material wise, that should not happen for about a decade or so. Just because the cost on KO is going up does not mean that they are as good or better than official. Sometimes, they still suck in one way or another. I hope this one is at least decent. The Panda Studio Shockwave is obscenely expensive, even as an unpainted kit. I rarely buy KO, though I do get to handle a lot of them, and I will wait till I have this one in hand before I pass judgement as to weather it is good or not. :)

    Well, when their Jazz came out there were multiple negative qc reports. Heck, most figures, in general, get a couple of posts of breakages and possibly bad qc. This is the first post we've seen highlighting bad qc, not saying this figure is gonna have good qc, but I don't think we should freak out (yet), it's only a single report

    There's an old saying which gets paraphrased continually (so much so I don't know what the original is) which goes something like this: Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is a declaration of war.

    So far that's one. Jazz hit war status, but we're still a potentially isolated incident (such as a test sample being released into the wild by mistake) on this guy. For now.

    Was so excited for a MPM sized shockwave till I learned it was them behind it. So much potential down the drain....

    I did not clearly see it wasnt yours, otherwise I wouldnt have asked. I thought they were your photos. Anyways, thanks for replying. Im afraid the screw thread and cheap plastic will cause cracking when if you wanna do a hip extention on this guy. damn

    very wishful thinking, but loosening the screw may risk cracking the brittle plastic as well. The threads may cause more cracking. worth a shot but very unlikely. There should have been more plastic around that screw.
