    I must admit this is my first time visiting this thread, and it's painful on so many levels. I try to keep things positive when it comes to FTC, and err on the side of impartiality. I love their 66 Batman figures, and SuperFriends, and random figures here and there across their offerings. That being said, I'm not blind. I love the idea of remaking the 12" WW line in 8" scale, but it's pretty obvious the results fell short of the mark. Here's a taste of the unrealized potential mentioned earlier in the thread:

    What any of this has to do with being woke/SJW or whatever is completely beyond me. It's just a ****ing figure assortment that missed the mark.

    Happy Tuesday. If you notice that someone who participated in this thread is showing as 'Banned' it's NOT because of what they originally wrote in the conversation. The banning is because of the threats they sent me for what they'd do if their account wasn't deleted immediately. I am not even sure if I can delete an account at this point, but if I can't be given the time to figure it out without being threatened I have other tools.

    For people who wonder why anyone would buy these figures, I want to say I support FTC because USUALLY the figures come through as good quality and I enthusiastically support the way they create niche figures that no one but comics geeks would imagine producing. I have especially loved the Batman 66 figures for this reason, and FTC products are what I use when redressing or reconfiguring faulty FTC figures.

    As to a question that was raised earlier as to why return Steve Trevor Howard instead of replacing it - I've taken the faulty, new Wonder Woman line and replaced them with standard 8" figures. The loose costumes look great on standard figures. The Steve Trevor now doesn't match the redressed 8" figures, as they are taller and larger - so that Steve is replaced by a generic brown-haired figure representing Lyle Waggoner-esque Steve.

    My core issue with FTC is the relative frequency of quality control issues. I really haven't ever bought items from a toy company that can be expected to have broken limbs in the package before shipping, loose heads and internal strings, etc. The poor paint jobs and shoddy figure construction on the new female WW line is a low point. (They really do look like Dawn dolls, except Dawn dolls stood up!
    If they could address the quality control and inconsistent customer service, they'd really be gold, because everything else is good!

    So those 2 Wonder Woman figures are the same, but the one has a new paint job? Well, that one on the right is stunning. Hard to believe how much better it is.

    The entitlement and emotional immaturity can get a little rich around here.

    Hard to believe, but true. There are plenty of talented painters in the hobby, but Ray Flores and Rusty Damante are both particularly fantastic at repaint/restyle upgrades.

    I'm sorry about that, I upset him and then he PM'd me. I made some (IMO) rational suggestions but I see he chose otherwise.

    I actually thought the conversation was relatively civil, but he may have felt attacked since he was the only person on one side of the debate.
