    Just got this bad boy in the mail today! Can't wait to open him up and add him to my MAD shelf.

    Anyone else buy an AP and have trouble with the signature smudging off?

    No, haven't gotten around to it, and didn't know it was happening to other people, did you?

    Never ever have your toy signed! Especially if it's dark because the inks available will smudge and/or fade. If you want the signature, always ask to sign the box of the header card or the card. Period. (Only exception is if the signature is on the foot and won't spoil the design if anything goes wrong.)

    All the AP's were signed, I didn't realise until it arrived.

    Not an excuse for an artist of this caliber to make such a faux pas in my books.

    MAD usually signs all of his vinyl from the site. not unless you ask him not to.

    but I do know what you are saying Dan maybe he should know that it would have a possibility of doing that.

    AP's are always singed indeed. BUt sometimes artists make mistakes. I gota a Beast Brothers AP and they used a VERY sticky ink for the accessory, which is sort of inexcusable. But at least they promised not to use the same ink in the future.

    PS: Everybody should always thank hu8o because he's the greatest! LOL

    I've turned my fingers down more than once over a pink Anarchy TM by Kozik. Hate that smudge! =p

    Yeah I never get figures signed anymore if I can avoid it. Too many in the collection have had the ink fade or smudge over time. If only I had known then what I know now. I will say most of my signed Mad'ls are still in perfect condition though.

    jazzy, what did he end up saying to you? Just, sorry, should have been more careful? Or what?

    Signed or not signed, I think its down to nothing more than personal preference.

    However a professional artist like Mad, who is charging $150 for a toy, should know how to sign something without any problems.

    And if they do make an error of judgement with what type of pen they use, they should be doing everything they can in the name of customer service to put the issue wright, not the 2 paragraph email equivalent of a polite "meh".

    personally I think this and Jesse Hernandez's Calevera are the two greatest 8 Inch Dunnys of all time :) This guy was worth every penny I spent on him @ Comic Con

    Can't think of a time that a signature increased the value of a toy.

    I stripped a MadL that had his signature on the back ... and that's the only thing that did not come off... LOL!
