I like the figure to, but I feel that konami is downgrading the quality, so the quality is not in accord with the price. And, pluss, the figure does not have battle rondo code... May be konami will leave the new figures for the following psp games only...

There is a comparation:

The red pice have an evenly white painting, the proxima piece have un uneven white painting and airbrush spots in the blue area, the legs have paiting problems to, the tone is different from one piece to the other, and the plastic in the pieces is opaque and looks cheap...
mine is also poorly painted but not in the legs, she has a streak on her chest plate were its thicker than the rest of the paint, and her helmit had an airbubble i had to clean out in the plug for her visor horns, however my maryceles is very well detailed with almost no flaws except some peach paint on her elbow, which is easily scratched of since its so lumpy and heavy in this spot

Mine have just arrived!

I can see what people mean by the paint job on the body, but I want to point out that the same thing happened to Valona - it's flesh-coloured paint on dark blue that's the issue and a occasionally a print job on the armour might be off. In all honesty I'm still pleased with 'em despite the 'cheap' feeling - my Ach felt that way, kind of brittle, but she still works. (I'm not defending Konami mind you, it is a poor show so far)

Celes' hair is a little speckle-y, plastic wise, but a lot better than some of the photos were showing - Proxima is perfect! I can't wait to get into the packs properly; I have to go to work instead! Bah!

valona had problems? was it only the dark blue one, because my white one is perfect in everyway with tight joints and other than her hair bows, that i thought were removeable, i was very pleased with her

A lot of owners were commenting on the paint applications on the body; the base body was dark blue and the flesh-coloured paint didn't take too well with her.

I don't mind these sort of things, but for some it was a bit of an issue. Celes and Proxima have followed the same sort of lines.

Also, Celes is so small! OMG!

EDIT: ARGH. PROXIMA. One of her hind legs is missing a piece up top that allows it to connect to the backpack. I could always use blu-tak, but...wtf. How did THAT happen? I'm actually....really disappointed in her. But i've already opened her. Argh. What do I do?

Send an email to whoever you bought it for. A lot of times they can get a replacement part for you.

If you're going to scrap Proxima, you might want to change your avvie.

It's looking that way. I've had no receipt from AmiAmi that they've received any email at all and my time has just about run out to get help. No answers...sadface!

Quick question, around when do you think they'll be discontinued? I want to know exactly how long I can put off purchasing thes two, seeing as I'm a chronic procrastinator.
