On mine, the ankle pegs are white plastic which have been painted black which means that the black paint just rubs/flakes off. In fact the whole leg appears to be painted in a matt black colour which has led to some paint rubbing at the knee joint as well. I've actually pulled the ankle peg out and rubbed the black paint off easily as it was flaking so badly. I have the full set of String Divers and feel that the ankle pegs and legs should have been made of coloured plastic rather than painted. What else is strange is that it looks like the person who did my figure used a glossy marker pen or paint and just painted a streak along his thigh and also dabbed the glossy paint on his hip joint....Is it supposed to look like that???? Looks messy, but just wondered if it was just mine or is it painted like that on anyone elses?

looks like sloppy glue work? the shiny is excess glue?

Yeah, think I'll email CS.
it's definitely not glue. It looks like someone's used a really thick marker pen colour in the bits they've missed painting over Rolling Eyes

Could it possibly be matte clear finish peeling off of black plastic?

actually you are right. I've had a closer look at the legs and hip joints. They appear to be white plastic which has been painted a glossy black. Then a matt coat has been applied and it's this matt coat that has come off or rubbed off whilst the person was packing the figure. I have now also noticed tha the paint is flaking away from the hip joints....like literally flaking off!!!

Can anyone who has the GID one confirm if the legs/hips are painted green or do they use green coloured plastic for those ones?

Got my GID today. Does anyone else have the problem of the thrusters not connecting to the helmet pack? Mine isn't tight at all so it just falls off. The only solution I can think of is to glue it on, which I don't want to do.

Am I the odd one out or is this common with all the Quantum Rangers? No one else has mentioned it so I'm guessing I got yet another 3A dud...

The Thrusters should wedge in the slot by friction. My Guy locks in fine, but the GID is a bit loose.

Add a layer of future shine/floor polish/nail polish/etc and it'll lock in well. The stand is also meant to be used to support the thrusters.

Mine "fits" but i can't mess with it to much, and the angle of hole on the backpack makes the stand push the thrusters out a bit. It all still works though.

Thanks Gregory, I'll try that. There isn't any friction at all, a bit annoying.

Well I emailed 3A about the poor QC issues on the legs of my Black and white Quantum Ranger twice and on both occasions they said they were going to chase up the parts department. Just wondering if they are actually going to be possibly cast the legs in black plastic rather than white plastic with the black painted on. Been waiting awhile for this to be sorted out now :-/
