MastraCustom (3 months ago) #43091206Yes, unfortunately it's correct :(
I wrote to GSC Customer Support asking for a replacement, here is their reply:
Paintwork is done partially by hand and therefore each product may
differ slightly and there is a limitation on the quality
The quality of all our stock is same as yours.
Your item is not defective but due to production limitation.
Consequently, we are not able to offer any support for your request.

Very frustrating for a Wonderful Hobby Selection :(
Thank you so much for taking a look at my review ^_^


If you had pushed hard with them they would had sent you those parts... I had to do be "rude" with them to receive replacement parts for my figmas.

loveanime (3 months ago) #43158172Thank you for the update. While it is good to know they are all like that, it is of course an annoying issue. I have seen it on other figures too where different parts of the figure have different color skin tones. By "production limitation" they probably mean that the parts are produced separately and are then put together. So probably the breast part was using a slightly more yellow PVC. It may also occur over time, e.g. the ITEM #61722 I have from Orchid Seed has now a huge difference between the legs and the upper body.MastraCustom (3 months ago) #43091206Yes, unfortunately it's correct :(

I have also seen your review and noticed the difference in color between the body and arms/legs. Fortunately, mine doesn't seem to have that difference in skin tone. Hopefully it doesn't change over time.

However, this is a big disappointment that others are getting faulty figures even though this is supposed to be part of the "Wonderful Hobby Selection" line of figures. The best of the best. I'm sorry that they won't grant you a replacement. Mine was missing the peg on the bottom of the headgear, so I couldn't mount it without a replacement from Goodsmile which they sent out thankfully.

So in total, my last 3 WHS figures came with faults (Takao, Murakumo, Iowa). I think I've had enough for now. I don't like this lottery of buying WHS figures and playing the chance game hoping it doesn't turn out bad. These are expensive items and shouldn't have these many problems. I was looking foward to the Suzuya scale, but now that she's a WHS figure, I'm now convinced that the price won't match the quality at all.

Honestly really disappointed in the paint job, it's nice, but I was hoping it'd be closer to the pinkish tone you see on the prototype. Mine has a very yellow tone to it and it's rather unappealing. I'm also disappointed there's no security to the base, she just sits loosely on top of it. It's nice you can organize how things sit yourself, but I prefer my figures secured. The sculpting is nice though.

Those 20mm ontop of her turret look like some gross hybrid between the actual 20mms Iowa had and the 25mms the IJN used.

You can see some difference in this picture picture/738886&... but mine is much more obvious.
