yeah I did notice that trust me I'm pretty picky for wanting them to look exactly like they do...don't know how or if that can be fixed the top need to be puffed up more like the buffy...yeah right like I'd take a chance on having these damaged

The GE looks like the skin on his neck has split....not sure but that crease shouldn't be there and usually points to the skin ripping after it has dried.

Agree, looks like the neck has been broken and skin torn.
