DX Not So Deluxe?

Well I think this post is long overdue. Ever since the announcement of Hot Toys 1:6 DX Batman, the toy community has been ecstatic. Its been widely accepted by critics world-wide, and has recieved many positive reviews. Well that all seemed to happen before the actual release of the figure. The DX released January 2010 worldwide and since has seemed to have nothing but problems. Reports of defective DX Batman's have surfaced all over the web and seem to keep coming. The problems that seem to be the most prominent are issues like warped or uneven cowl hornes, pealing or greasy-like rubber, and parts actually disassembling with ease.
I cant believe this is actually happening to figures done by such a great company like Hot Toys, but it's difficult to ignore all these problems. To be honest, I wish Hot Toys would have just gotten it right the first time instead of making us dip into our wallets for a second Batman of the same type. I actually liked the first MMS Batman. Other than a few imperfections, it wasnt a bad figure. With Hot Toys going back to the drawing board, it makes one think why they didnt pay more attention to the problems that were created with the DX. One can only hope that they're Hot Toys DX Batman will arrive problem free.

Thks guys...

For the record, my qualms with the DX series of figures were not about the quality issues eg paint, cowl etc.....but rather on how HT's decided to milk the line beyond anybody's expectation....(havin said that, I did buy DX01.....but only because I missed out on Joker ver 1.!)...

What's next HT? a DX Harvey Dent? LOL!

Seriously. HT definitely milked their TDK licence till it was dry. I hope their done with it unless they give us a Gordan, Fox, or Alfred.
