    I would hope V2 with have obvious differences to help tell which is which.

    They are redesigning it and contemplating better paint.

    I still shouldnt have to pay extra for people not being able to tell.

    Like I said earlier, they should just have people send a video of themselves smashing the figure with a hammer. That'll get it off the secondary market.

    A box of chocolates and a big card saying "We're Sorry!" would do the job.

    I'd rather do that. Truth be told, you could probably just give it a good squeeze.

    Right. All they should really require is a screenshot of your v1 order confirmation/receipt.

    So after a pretty damn big PB delay, my Locke was finally delivered today....and my wife took all the mail with her to visit some friends & won't be in until late.

    Wish me luck...that it's broken into multiple pieces right in the packaging. :D

    They’re not sending new copies to ppl free of charge - XTB’s penny-pinching ways are what got us into this mess to begin with - I’m downright chagrined at the gullibility of the fandom

    Haha yeah, I keep laughing at people being like “they expect me to pay to ship out a brand new free figure?!” More than likely they expect you to pay to ship a figure that they expect you to also pay for. But we’ll see if XTB takes the super high road.

    XTB said it's TBD. They advised I'd need to send my v1 Locke back, but didn't say who would pay for postage as that hasn't been decided.

    For those who have bought Locke, we are re-prototyping now and we will have a meeting next few days on how to fix issues.

    Working hard for YOU!

    Fake post, total lack of corgis, crabs and/or untrimmed fingernails.

    “Hello everybody, it’s us at XTB, right this minute we’re scheduling a meeting to determine what day we’ll begin to decide what time the meeting should be where we’ll decide what we’ll discuss in terms of timing for the meeting in which we’ll decide what we may or may not do! Just checking in thanks!”

    I’ll believe it when I’ve got the replacement in my hands.

    Can't wait for Locke 2.0 to cost $200+ because of these redesigns...

    Feel free to think what you want about my comment, but I was being dead serious... there is absolutely no way they will eat the cost of the redesigns.
