    There is only one post on UT's Weibo about the issue. I don't know whether the problem is common or not, but it is not a QC problem, you people should relax a bit.

    I’m not gonna do the research on this cause it doesn’t really matter to me since mine is already on the way. People could be exaggerating, people could be blowing it out of proportion or it could be some sort of disaster issue but I don’t really care right now. I just wanna stay hype until mine arrives. If it arrives broken I’ll be sad and seek a replacement part I guess or maybe I’ll just wait for the replacement head.

    So they shipped the first batch which is supposed to be probably all the first pre-orders ? As far as I remember this figure was supposed to be ultra limited so ShowZ used to have it at $225 or some and only pre-order based (Edit - My bad, I think it's some other store), now just a few weeks back when started to get information, the price was $175, then after a lot of going out of stock and then coming back, it's now at $179 which is available to purchase as well.

    Now since UT is going to repack all of them properly and ship with a 2nd batch..but not sure whether this "Horns" is the only thing they are going to look at with this new process. I hope they take care of that paint chipping thing too if there's a "New Batch". Wish someone like Prime, Ben, Emgo got hands on it to give us more info on it instead of shooting in the dark and doing all guesses to fill the gap from Chinese reports.

    I noticed how their box-art was significantly downgraded, look at Peru Kill, Challenger, Dragoon. All of them are superb, this one looks super basic while the figure looks insanely improved in paint and sculpt. Perhaps they did some miscalculation on this box and shipping aspect.

    Don’t remember it ever hitting the $200 range. Was always $170’s as far as I remember.

    So I'm guessing it's a good thing ShowZ hasn't shipped mine yet.

    They also had a lame excuse. "We didn't factor in the packaging". I mean this is their fourth figure, not the first one. Were they thinking that people would go to China to pick up their own personal copies?

    Seems to at least confirm there was not a recall since they’re still sending out more stock from the factory to the retailers which wouldnt be happening if the item had major defects and needed to be called back

    The figure is fine, people freak out of nothing, just be careful with his horns.

    Logical. After all it's not a figure defect, but an unfortunate thing to occur due to transportation and poor packaging.

    I just got my shipping notice! Obviously, I'll be a bit wary of the horns but I am very excited regardless. This and MP-52 are my two most anticipated figures of the year!

    I assume some people get their figures shipped sooner depending on if they've backed the figure since way back?

    Possibly. I first put a deposit pre-order down back in January 2020 and just paid this off a week ago.

    Huh, makes sense I suppose. I had only paid for it a couple weeks ago since I only recently found out about it. So maybe I should expect it to ship in a week-?

    ShowZ says they ship in full payment order. So a preorder ensures you have a spot, but since they allow you to cancel anytime if you pay in full, you can technically jump the shipping line ahead of the people who *might* cancel their preorder.

    Considering I payed later seems I got stuck in the second batch. The wait continues :( .

    Oh crap. So I just checked, And it's odd. It says that all the payment was received, but I'm still getting notifs from the 4 Payment plan being paid off.
