I have gotten 6 Eels so far (3 from HTS, 3 from stores) and only 1 of them has not had quality issues. 4 of them have painting issues and the 5th one is missing a knife. I have not opened the 5th one yet, but the plastic band that holds the knives is not there and the knife is loose in the package. (I guess you could call it a variant because you can read the number on the knife, like the gun. ) Has anyone else had this kind of problem with the Eels?
I will add some pics once I get home.

i really think that its a bigger issue when i buy a joe and there's nothing wrong with it.
for example: this past thurs. i found the dvd pack with dusty (for some reason i cannot keep track of who's in which), anyway....there was only one there and yet dusty, the main figure i wanted, was perfectly painted. usually i stand there and inspect and compare.

I only opened one of the 5 I have, and the head is like a bobble head - it's very, very loose compared to every other figure I have opened. I know it's probably an easy fix, but I expect that when I pay $7, $8, or $9 for a figure, it should be excellent quality and I shouldn't have to fix it. Call me crazy.

Mine are all great.Just to help you out I'll take away the pain and misery by kindly taking those sub-par Eels away from you

Actually I've had issues with the legs on the recent releases of the Cobra Troopers, and also with the legs of the jumpsuited Joes like Wild Bill and Matt Trakker. Anyone else had these?
