Does the ppc projector lens (or whatever you want to call it...) of the metal marauder look extremely badly molded or is it just the picture?

Hmm, you are right, there is a miscast on the right lip of both arms.  Just checked with a second one I have.  Its not as bad as this one, but may affect the lot.  I'll double check the remaining ones to verify.

Agreed, the Marauder's dorsal cannon looks AMAZING in metal, but those PPC's look very smudged.

What about the lower left leg? The detailing on it looks like "Yikes Batman, you look like a puma mauled you."

There is slip on the legs.  I'm 3 marauders in out of 6.  I'm wondering if QC on them was rushed.

Metal seems to support more greebles, but QC appears to be more important...

4th Marauder. Was able to magnetize the waist and the dorsal guns in anticipation of the variant pack.  Leg slip is still present, but the flash in the arms is alot better, not as bad as the first.

That Marauder looks a lot better. Too bad the the legs seem limited in posing. If it was able to do have some dynamic poses, I would get it for sure.
