I got mine a week ago and didn't notice any problems.  I took a closer look at the hands today.  Here are some pictures:

Man..........that's sweet. Are there any sites that give ideas as to how to get these sort of painting results on models??

I really like this dio, from the pica I've seen, anyway.

Factory /quality issues abound on this piece :-[, but I snagged a decent enough specimen.  Of the examples I had to choose from, there were tons of quality issues.  Pegs that didn't fit in the holes on the base, a head glued looking off to the right instead of straight at Renfield, a paint scratched collar that someone in quality control touched up with a sharpie!, and paint globs galore. Get a good one and be glad you did.  They may have made 500 of them, but I'd say half of them have stuff wrong with them, lol! :-\
