Therefore we would not be able to update you on what they thought about the problem. However if the quality department notices a trend, then they would update our system, so that we can let our customer know about the problem.

Today while we were playing, I looked at the Jessie fig and noticed there is no black marking on the front of the neck. Then I saw the rectangle on the arm. It's hard to tell since that's his only Jessie. Still, it's frustrating to find this, especially in a licensed set.
Flynn wrote:To my knowledge, all the "special" minifigure parts (IE, the longer arms and legs, molded heads, ect.), are produced in China, hence the rectangular markings and lower quality. I believe this was addressed a while back, but I can't remember where it was, else I would link you there.
