Thread: FTC Wonder Woman

  1. #21
    I find Thunderboltís perpetual irreverence a source of ceaseless amusement, and I canít get enough of it in regards to FTC. I have too much religious guilt to openly criticize FTC, because despite the flaws, I havenít stalled my conspicuous consumption of these figures. However, little rubber heads with rooted hair have been in production for almost a century. There really is no excuse for such shoddy output. Beautifully rooted hair toys(without a single hair out of place) abound at the drug store and 99Ę shops, whilst FTC is making brand new figures over $30 dollars with collapsed heads and thirsty wig hair. The new Wonder Woman Figure looks more like itís been flattened for years, festering between a mattress and a boxspring before suddenly being yanked out for shipping. I have to admit, I find it a bit infuriating.

    I don't have a dog in the hunt when it comes to this line. I have looked at the pictures of the product and your critique is not only hilarious, but spot on! Hahahahaha

    I just call it as I see it. When they blow it like they do 75 percent of the time and at 30 bucks a pop, there is no forgiveness. WW is a mess, we all knew the body was going to suck, but the rest of it they should really try to get right. Even if it was a molding issue, it should have been rejected by FTC and not just accepted. It really gives off the impression that they just don't care about the finished product.

    I am wondering if anyone here knows the people who run FTC. Because they are always featured in the Mego Museum newsletter. And surely they see the constant criticism of their figures both on here and on places like FB. I had no issue with their customer service when I had to get a figure's boot replaced. I just wonder if they've ever publicly addressed the constant quality complaints. Or if they are just like, oh well, people will buy anyway... It may be that they are trying for more "simplistic" sculpts as an attempt to "look retro," but I do have to agree there's something very slapdash about everything they do. Also, I wonder why they choose to create new sculpts vs. reproducing or slightly modifying Mego sculpts to fit characters that were never produced.

    To my knowledge, they have never publicly addressed the issues that are expressed on this forum. I have often wondered why they don't start with, say, the IG head sculpt, and use it as a base to create other heads. It's not rocket science and at least the female heads wouldn't come out looking like angry drag queens.

    Don't forget angry zombie/vampire drag queens. All that's needed is a black pupil added to the eye, and it would be 100% better. How hard could that be?
