|These two little Phoenix people are well travelled. They are part of the collection I take to shows. They don't get wrapped up, they get thrown in with a bunch of other items. You can see a few places where paint is chipped off but damage is minimal. Your figures probably won't get abused like these. The point I want to make is that my method produces a tough finish. The black A shadows show up nicely as do the toned down Bs. The detail in these castings is incredible.
