Factory defects

Postby Oracle » Mon Jan 08, 2018 10:39 am

I'm archiving some figures and noticed a peculiarity on the back of my Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (tri-logo Made in China).
There is a small dent and a longer crease in the back of his head. Clicking through other images of the same figure I don't see this sort of thing.

Has anyone else noticed this sort of factory defect?

Iv'e got a carded trilogo and a loosie, no dent on either of mine.

That mark though to me actually looks like somebody squashed his head with scissors or something. :?

Here’s one that I used as my profile pic. I’ve got few with factory errors and short pours.

I've had some strange face sculps in the past on some snow and stormtroopers but that's about it

Pretty sure it left the factory like that due to a bad pour. (It wasn't squashed or cut as it's been mine since the shop).

Something intriguing about that Boba!!
