Is it possible that people are just hating for no reason? It's certainly possible, but I doubt it. ToyWiz has a disclaimer about NECA's figures. I've seen people on Instagram and Twitter reporting issues. Someone is on a wait list for a new head.
I went through three Ultimate City Hunter's that were broken. I bought one Young Blood that had a split wrist. I bought an Elder Predator that has a leg issue. I have DC, Marvel, and Star Wars figures and I've never ran into the amount of issues that I have had with NECA. I want to keep collecting NECA figures, especially the Alien and Predator lines. They look great, but they have some serious QA issues that need to be dealt with.
