I think it's common. I have two. One has tiny chips on the very front and a hair in the silver, the other has some bubbles in the paint, and both have what look like grease stains over the silver (most of which rubbed off, but is still visible in some lights). Mine are very minor and barely noticeable, so they don't bother me, but when he was released I saw lots of people have worse issues. He's still an absolute beauty.
