You know, this is why I stay

You know, this is why I stay away. I got a 1969 Mazinger which was one of the priciest Gokins Ive ever bought. I was blown away by its packaging and presence but once I really got to handle the figure, I almost regretted the purchase. Sure, they are big heavy gokin but QC SUCKS. My Mazinger was touched up in about 7 places. The arms banged against the hips and chipped paint during shipping. Everything else was chipped at the factory because they bothered to touch it up. The touch up paint did not match correctly and wasnt even the same gloss. The worst part is that almost his entire foot was touched up with what look like a house paint brush using flat black paint instead of glossy like the rest of the figure.

These look pretty but for the price and headaches I stay away. They look all weird to me anyways. Too monsterlike for my taste. Sorry to hear about your wing problem. I hope you get replacements.

yin and Yang

I will say the paint is tight on this one, no flaws I could see. Like I said if wings get replaced I will enjoy if not...
Thing does look cool.
