    Inexcusable! The lack of quality control here is so inexcusable! Can't they handle their products with better care?!

    I'm sorry this happened to you, but the expression on that thing's face combined with the sheer absurdity of what is happening here makes me lol.

    Oh My God. What the fuck. Just..
    I'm so sorry Godziboy1993.. I just don't even.
    Really, really hope you'll get a replacement/refund :( 

    Has Neca responded to this yet? Have the white-knights emerged?
    I don't have a twitter account to keep up with these things.

    Don't be silly guys. NECA never responds. That's why you buy at Amazon or TRU so you can return it for a refund.

    Very tempted to quit the line, but Scunner comes out soon...

    I wish they gave it to Bandai. Pacific Rim would be perfect for MonsterArts.

    My big Knifehead was perfect out the box. Now the plug that receives the stand is loose so he leans forward very dangerously ready to suicide off the shelf.

    Yeah and that would cost you what? $70 for a 6" figure? Not really practical for me, I like NECA the way it is, yeah there are some QC issues but for the most part its been pretty good. I never had any issues with their figures, been collecting it for almost 2 years now.

    For you, maybe. But for a lot of us it would be be nice to have some highly articulated figures that didn't break out of package.

    From my understanding they switched factories not to long ago.

    It was my understanding that they only switched factories for the Aliens & Predator lines. :(

    NECA needs to lose customers and market shares.

    Only way they'll learn.

    Atleast the 7" line is improving for the most part :/
    Waiting for NECA to get back to me because Knifehead is out of stock on TRU so I'm fucked for a replacement at the moment.

    I don't want this line to fail because this is our only PR figure line, and there's no guarantee someone else might get the license. I want it to get better, and it is showing signs, but fuck the QC errors on Knifehead are unnaceptable. It's a 150 dollar figure. It should be FLAWLESS.

    You know, with the cartoon coming, you know what this could mean, right?

    A DEDICATED TOY LINE. Please let it be Hasbro. Or Hell, even megabloks doing build-able sets like their Halo line would be awesome. Could you imagine customizable fully poseable minifigs for the Jaegers and kaiju with little city sets for them to duke it out on?!

    I`ll be excited for the cartoon when we get confirmation that it wont be on cartoon network. Thats just printing a death sentence.

    Okay not even I can defend that. That is just atrocious.
