    Hi all , I have just got through the post my second Viking Fury bust from Andrea miniatures n to say this one is a letdown is a understatement !! There are air bubbles everywhere , one on his back is 4mm across also all the small detail is fall of moulding rubber, now at £50 ish you would think someone would check this sort of thing!!!
    Thanks all I feel better now

    Sam now you'll understand why they say the bust was modelled on your average Andrea customer.

    Hi Sam, that's most unfortunate, any chance of getting a picture ?

    You should lay down a complain by Andrea.
    Do you get the bust trough Andrea or other Internet shop.
    If the last, you should complain there.
    I hope one from the two will solve your problem.
    And indeed, for 50 pounds you may get what you want, not WYSINWYW

    Shouldn't happen. This is why I don't feel confident enough to buy any Andrea figure.

    Exactly. I would not buy them now unless I'd opened the box first myself. Their recent stuff can be appalling.

    Hi all thank for your feedback, sorry Gordy I posted this while the filler was setting so no photos.
    Marc I will let the shop know just so they have a record, but vie been prepping it all afternoon, so it will be fine.
    As for the quality of Andrea figures lately it’s a shame, I’ve seen some new releases on pf n they look great but only time will tell.

    You should email the pics to Andrea; explain to them the same thing you said here, and ask for a replacement.

    Sounds like who ever is in charge of QC at Andrea is not doing there job.

    Why not do a review showing everything you belive is wrong with the kit . This is the sort of thing every modeller should know about . Kits aren't getting any cheaper but some manufacturers seem happy to put out poorer quality , too many are now getting their products made in China where mass production is king but quality is an unknown word . lets us all start putting pressure on manufacturers to bring back quality on the goods we buy .
