Trekkies Uhura Q-Pop Figure From Quantum Mechanix

Quantum Mechanix has a line of Q-Pop figures that include characters from Star Trek, DC, and The Big Bang Theory. The Trekkies line stand about 4.5" high and are made of "high quality PVC." Figures in the Trekkies line include Kirk, Uhura, Spock, and the SDCC Exclusive "Mirror Mirror" Spock. Each figure comes with a stand, word bubble, and an erasable marker so you can write in your favorite quotes. 

Uhura, designed by Mohammad Haque, is a great looking piece. Unfortunately, the peg's on the figure's feet didn't line up with the holes in the base. I had to manipulate them to get them to line up. The issues didn't end there. One of the pegs on Uhura was too big to fit into the base's hole, leaving the peg to sit about half way in. It will hold, but I'm wondering where the quality control was here. I had read some pretty bad reviews on this line and have seen the Batman Q-Pop in stores and the paint apps were pretty bad. I gave the company the benefit of the doubt and ordered it anyway. Overall, it's a disappointing purchase and I'm not sure if I'll be collecting more of these even though they are great looking pieces.

A great looking figure, fresh out of the box.

Legs didn't line up and peg was too big for the hole.
