You made "I shouldn't have to do that" a good catch phrase lol

Sorry it didn't turn out fantastic. Agreed, for that price, there should be a lot more polish. I'm not a big jumbo person, so I have to ask. Why are modern releases like this so expensive?

Is it because of small production runs?

Since I don't work for a toy

Since I don't work for a toy manufacturer, I can't say for sure, but that does seem to be among the prevailing schools of thoughts. Also, smaller companies having to pay larger companies for the rights to do them at all probably contribute a lot to it as well. By way of comparison, the upcoming Bandai Mazinger Z is being released by a a major company in larger number and the retail price reflects that. Having said all that, you should at least get what you pay for and here I don't feel we did.

Josh, seeing all these issues, I would just return this thing and get the $350 back.

This toy is straight up GARBAGE.

Y'know, I never even

Y'know, I never even considered it as a possibility. As much as it was a disappointment, I guess I'd still just rather have it than not.
