Thread: Your FTC Horror stories

  1. #81
    Getting back to the leather problem, I received two brown leather jackets. The one I took out of the little bag deteriorated after 5 days! It looked and felt solid for the first few days, but then started peeling off by itself at day 4! The one that's still in the bag is not opened yet and still looks good in the packet! I'm afraid to take it out!

    Just so there's no confusion, Cornelius is wearing the actual Mego shirt while the one on the right is the FTC version in orange color. Dr. Zaius is NOT wearing it, only holding it up!

    Thank you for the information.

    For me, my latest horror story relates to trying to piece together Black figures so the Hall of Justice doesn’t look like a KKK rally and make my multiracial family wonder where they belong in superhero land. I ordered Zica style heads, old and type S bodies, male and female - and the browns don’t match. No one item matches the shade of brown on any other item. The Zica African American male head came with a “flesh-tone” (Caucasian) neck attachment piece. Every character looks like some weird zombie recreation who underwent skin bleaching on the face only. The “flesh tone/white people figure pieces do not have mismatched tones. The “African American” female heads come with blue eyes (?). What’s up with all this?

    I also found it weird that the AA heads for females had blue eyes. I get they can't use the uhura mold because of likeness issues probably but there was also the dinah-mite AA head they couldve used. There are now over 7 other styles of female face sculpts why can't we get a decent AA woman with natural hair as a plus? Bumblebee, Vixen and Amanda Waller are all also popular characters to get their old figure as well.

    I will say I ordered from them for the first time in years and I am so much more impressed with QC. I got a harley quinn and when I used to have female figures in the past from them they would already be broken or immovable without breaking but I guess they upped their body quality? Its not perfect but is a lot better than it used to be. I also am thankful we have FTC because with all the quality issues aside we have gotten so many amazing characters!

    I haven't ordered from FTC for some time. I got billed 13.00 for a First Class package.

    If I did that on ebay, I'd be forced into issuing a refund. I had two more orders I was considering, but that just stopped me cold.

    yeah the shipping is a big turn off. they always go the cheapest route even if you pay thru the nose.

    I try to save up the stuff I want until I’m ready to do one big order to kind of justify the shipping.
    Expectation is the death of discovery.

    Me too. I just placed an order like that and took advantage of a couple of loose in bag figures I wanted to get a free gift (peg hand female body; I can always use pegs for Type S conversions). I usually order the figures from the FTC site and wait to get $100 worth for free shipping.

    My address was messed up so the order was shipped back. Nothing better than overpaying for first class.

    So my order arrived back at FTC today. The reply I got was they could send it back, but it would be another shipping charge. So after screwing me on the first shipping price, they want to add more onto it.

    How anybody can defend this company is beyond me.
