Yeah, I don't think it's humidity. UV, sure, but mine never saw a ray of sunshine.

Mezco Batman turning pink? Is that a common problem?


Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
Dear Pentfwoosh Forums,

I never thought it would happen to me, but...

I've seen it often in Mezco/ 1:12 soft goods forums. It's the regular Sovereign Batman. I used to scoff at people taking poor care of their soft goods.

People say keep them away from sunlight, but it happened to mine after two years of never being exposed to sun, extreme temps, extreme humidity, etc. I picked it up to dust noticed it was pinkening. It looked like grey sheer fabric stretched over a pink figure. It got worse over time, so I just dyed it.

Having spoken to some local (Toronto) Mezco collectors/customizers, it seems to be luck of the draw, and the extremity of the color change varies.

No problems with Supreme grey.

Google turned this up. He says Brown, but it's the same effect.

Oh wow, that’s pretty bad. I sold most of my mezco a few years ago when I got frustrated with the line, but glad I never had this problem

When the pink skull set went up for sale did it mention when they would ship?

Yeah that info is on all the order emails. I deleted the now available email when they went up. Didn’t know if that one mentioned a date or if it was a con exclusive type release.

I've heard second-hand that some people are seeing movement in their FedEx accounts but I haven't seen anything in mine. I'm sure the 4th of July isn't helping things move quicker. Maybe next week we'll see more.

They say 7-10. Isn't always true.

No set date, but you'll receive a notice when it does ship. All I can tell you as an experienced Mezcoer is Buy It Now (which this was) usually means it's out within several weeks. There was a good run in early Covid where things shipped the next day or so, but that ship has sailed.

a friend found the original email in his deleted stuff. i clear mine every few days. there was nothing special about the sale. i thought i read somewhere it shipped around sdcc time but guess not.

hopefully they ship from NY. i always feel dirty or used when handling the shipping box when they arrive from washington.

We might have a Nemo situation on our hands. That was listed as "In Stock" and it took Mezco months to fulfill the orders.

who knows....they probably needed the funds right away to get the wolverine figures through a port. they can't be taking in too much cash if they aren't shipping items. maybe they will offer a dock worker gomez pre order to use the NRD's to get the pink skulls moving.

Who knows. I've long thought Mezco operates within a "rob Peter to pay Paul" business model. They go from looking like they're flush with cash and offering robust toy lines to consumers to looking like they might not be able to keep the lights on.

I would truly love to be a fly on the wall at their office for a week. I imagine it is pure pandemonium.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that gets this vibe. I'm probably way off, as I know nothing about how to run a business. I just picture every room being a high-stress, tension-filled, situation room.
