I ordered aria as soon as it was up. Still have not received it. It was the only item from the con I wanted so the postage is not an issue for me on this one. Yesterday I received emails from S7 and Amok Time advertising Maria. I responded to S7 I had ordered and paid for it already and where was it?

This is an automated email, but I'd like to let you know that we are currently revamping our Customer Care system.

My name is Rudy and I am the new Customer Care Manager here at Super 7. The Customer Care team is currently working through a large back log of tickets but please rest assured that your request will be replied to.

We truly appreciate your patience during this transition and would like to thank you for continually supporting Super 7!

Happy Holidays!



I checked my order a week ago and it said it had been fulfilled. This sounds like somebody f&*%ed up and is backpedaling. I am considering my response.


CCC.

I finally got my Maria in this morning but I am confused now. I am sure this is the Con version but I thought it was supposed to be copper. This one is more like gunmetal grey.

Im sorry but after reading this thread I don't understand the hate going on.

No one has a gun to your head to make you buy anything.  Nobody forces you to become a completist.  No one makes you rebuy figures you already have because they have new packaging. Nobody makes you buy a 3 3/4 inch universal monster because you collect universal monsters.

We are literally in a new golden age of action figures. You can buy action figures of almost ANYTHING now. Just buy what you like - That is the point.
If you don't like it, instead of buying it and complaining about "having to " on forums (Which really doesnt affect anything) actually complain WITH YOUR WALLET and start passing on figures you dont want or need.

Don't like exclusives? Then DONT BUY EXCLUSIVES. SDCC is a major revenue source for smaller toy companies and exclusives are a huge reason for this.

I love toys but forum complaining has become to the grown up version of throwing a tantrum in the middle of the toy aisle.

That's the same one I have and I agree that the colour isn't quite what I expected but it is quite heavy, maybe it's made out of copper? I'm guessing not but do wonder if the weight of this will differ from the regular release that is out now. That one does appear to be more plastic so do pass on your findings if you end up with both.

Me, too.  Almost black.

I don't think it matches the catalog picture color, which looked more patinaed copper or bronze.

Not at all. Itís garbage.  But Iím not claiming I was forced to buy it, or saying mego is awful, etc.

My invoice says copper. I have seen mention of a 'black' version, but have seen nothing concrete on that yet. The pic on the site now looks more like the Droids C3PO in color than a metallic copper, but they are calling it copper too.

Either you don't understand basic human nature or you never watched the Matrix. People simply are not happy unless they have something to complain about (and someplace to complain about it).

Same here.  Glad I'm not the only one confused.  (I was beginning to think it was just me.)

Luckily for us, we have certain manufacturers and retailers who are more than willing to give us plenty to complain about.

I can't believe that was only a year ago. Love those things. That's one line that got it right (and kept the prices low).
