New Marvel universe figure horrible paint jobs

Postby Galactape » Thu Mar 15, 2012 3:01 pm

I was in Walmart today and got to see some of the new Marvel Universe figures, I picked up Psylocke thinking that it would be a good figure, but it wasn't it was horrible. The paint apps were so terrible that there were purple spots all over her legs, the lines were messy and the head was disgusting. Is it possible that they are focusing alot more on the rturn of Marvel Legends? I personally hope so I have never been a huge fan of the MU but these new ones are even worse. Plus I think they are aiming MU at little kids now considering the paint and the removal of the stand and info files which I always considered to be a plus to the figure. I am wondering if they are canceling MU all together so they can bring in more MLs.

They are smaller, but they also lack detail and are very fragile.
