Eh, I have two sets from the same seller on eBay, I will stand by my rushed factory goofs claim. They clearly are flawed but I also have other figures from Mega that lack the same QC. Undersized thighs, short forearms, casting flash. Underformer armor pieces from poor molding. There are even images on here of that oddly translucent and off color Adewale from the Assassin's Creed line. I can't recall ever seeing any Mega Halo KOs. Can't recall any KOs of anything but CoD, if I am honest and those are blatantly KOs. Underpainted, rubbery, branded as another toy line. I doubt things suddenly changed for series 17 of Halo Heroes. Especially when the figures haven't seen a mass retail release. We all know these Chinese sellers are passing along stuff they or some buddy of theirs is shoveling into their lunchbox from the factory. It shouldn't be a surprising to get duds from time to time. That seller has even relisted them to clearly read, "defective". I doubt he knew or cared that they didn't look exactly like the renders. As for hands, many of the MotU hands have stressed marks too. The black plastic hands used on most Spartans seems the most robust to me but even it can break. It doesn't help that Mega figures don't really even scale with the vehicles they come with.
