    ahhhh, fond memories of Medi Spidey. He was my favorite until his shoulder joint broke. When that happened I stopped buying Medicom figures. It's not just Spidey that had problems. Some of my other Medicom figures had quality issues. Spidey was jus tthe straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak. Ended up selling him to a member on Mediworld, along with the rest of my Medicom figures.

    It's a shame that Medicom would use such a brittle plastic for their 301 bodies.

    for the prices they are charging us, Medicom really shouldn't be giving us such crap bodies. the worst thing about the crap bodies is that buying replacements are that easy and removing the costumes is a tailoring operation in itself.

    It's good that you decided to drop Medi completely and I'm sure you'll have a better experience with other 1/6th companies that offer more durable toys. I'm only picking up selected SW figs from them for now.

    Have you had any problems with your Medicom figures Shaun?

    Quality concerns isn't the only reason for why I stopped collecting Medi figures. Pricing and value are factors too. On average I paid around $130-150USD for a Medicom figure. Not once did I feel that it was a good, or even fair deal. It strikes me as odd that companies like Hot Toys can release complex figures like the Predators, Aliens, and their Military line for (on average) less than what Medicom charges. IMO Hot Toys has superior paint application on their headsculpts.

    I mean, I paid $120 for a Predator, and $110usd for an HT Endoskeleton. Definitely worth the price.

    On top of all this Medicom is usually skimpy on the accessories. And I hate their display stand.

    your thoughts?
