A buddy sent me a Guy Gardner figure he got at a comic shop, knowing GG is my favorite superhero and I live in the middle of nowhere. I was like a kid today when it came and couldn't wait to open it and display on my shelf. When I did open it all the joints were wet, I'm guessing its a release compound they use in the molding process but never had a figure with it on before. That was easily cleaned but the worst part was he has two right arms. It's kinda hard posing him like he's charging the ring with the arm holding the lantern bent backwards.
I'm not gonna tell my friend because he ment well and I don't want to hurt his feelings. You'd think for the cost of these figures, this one was $16, they would do some kind of quality control.
Anyone else have a DC Direct horror story?

I ordered two Deathstrokes. one came with the WRONG head. I'm not even sure which head it was. It was red. I'm not a huge DC fan but have always liked Deathstroke so I ordered two when they came out.
