Couldn't have put it better myself. Learn from the Oddballmeister. If you are going to leave a negative comment for a manufacturer's products - constructive criticsm, reasoned opinion but not sarky.
Quite agree Mark, guess you have decided to not "name & shame" a certain company by talking a hammer to their products?Although we DO rely on you for an honest review, so I guess any negative comments from you we can be reasonably sure are based on what you see - hope that doesn't sound sarky, it isn't meant to. Like others, I look for independant reviews and, above all, size comparisons, when "buying a pig in a poke". Which are availalable from Baueda.
Excellent point. I've not really gotten many bad minis myself. I had a few Battlefront products that came from their Malaysia factory that were really really poorly cast...but their older stuff and stuff made in New Zealand seems to be just fine. I thank the companies out there that are providing enough quality control that I've only had to file one single complaint in the last ten years about a cast problem.
