yes it a big problem, but for me it was two tiny spots, and mine is a "good" shin, so im sure the nightmare gets worse.

Added in 1 minute 44 seconds:
also, can the Shin next to the 2nd and 3rd forms be a meme, its too great.

Revoltechs rule. At least they don't come in 3 different pieces out of the box like some SHMAs


Anguirus did. Two of his legs were separate pieces and you had to put him together.
I will explain slowly why you are wrong.

Revoltech look nice, but they're also annoyingly small and have really blatant articulation. SHMA beats them easily.

That's kind of the point. I love it when people deem this a negative when it's the whole point of the line. My Revoltech Deadpool can be put into some crazy ass poses, mimicking comic book covers. Not only that Revoltech joints are vastly superior in durability compared to SHMA.

Oh, and Revoltech can paint their figures.

I've been burned by Revoltech. Their Evangelions didn't look remotely close to what was in the promo pics and the joints on them didn't cooperate with the plastic molding. Robot Damashii was far better with articulation and accuracy. Other than Revoltech Gigan, I don't really care for the line anymore.

Well I just opened up my new BG, and all I have to say is, skreeonk Tamashii!
The lower jaw is loose as fuck-it falls out when I try to open its mouth; tried to stick it back in, but the peg seems to be smaller than the hole, so no matter how hard I try, I can't secure it (normally you'd hear a pop/click if it fits, but mine just doesn't), so the lower jaw kinda just hangs in there by friction of the sculpt. I also notice chipped orange paints on its tail, and I haven't even touched it yet goddamnit Tamashii. :cry:

I will probably contact customer service and see what they can do. I hope it's just my luck, but I hadn't had any problems like this from Monsterarts before, and I have been supporting this line for a long time(have most of the figures minus a few).

Still a nice figure though, but I kinda wish that they would've used translucent parts on its tail instead of orange paint . :| Long before they announced the UBV, I had already had plans on painting my original BG's tail orange, but never got around to it. :lol:

Same applies to SHMA in it's current state, but people are buying them up like crack. Overall, I'd say Revoltech is a better line. Stoked for their Spiderman and Venom since Marvel Legends are garbage.

Easily? No. I've bought 6 Revoltechs and have had not one issue (can't say the same for SHMA). Paint, articulation, durability, all are great. Overall when SHMA is at the top of their game I'd say they beat out Revoltech but not by a whole lot.

I only have one, but i'd say SHMA beats the one I have my a little bit (I have the Zinogre).

Yes, but I'm only comparing Revoltech's Evas to Robot Damashii's. Besides, it's not like Revoltech will be doing the Godzilla series again anytime soon.

Revoltech is quite nice, I don't have many but the ones I have I just love them.
SHMA hasn't been at the top of their game, for quite some time now. :lol:
and I blame the factory in China :roll:

Well, you never know, Revoltech seems to have done all the monsters we want from SHMA, if people move away from SHMA, Revoltech might go back to it. Im sure they sold alot of thier figures due to what monsters they have done, and all SHMA is doing is repaints and Godzillas.

Not gonna happen. Kaiyodo doesn't have the license anymore, not since SHMA popped up. Best we will get is probably Gamera reissues.

Not with MG74 around the corner. :lol: I still have two repaint preorders (SuperMG and Destroyah), and I can't cancel them, so I'm worried af how they will turn out; if they skreeonk up these two, I'm not preordering poop from p-bandai ever again :evil: I will just wait for reviews and see if any figure is worth purchasing.
