Not everything ends up looking as promised or advertised, but a new pair of Vocaloid figures—based on popular virtual idols IA and ONE—take the cake.

1st Place is the company responsible for these… things. Their formal apology ensures something like this will never happen again, and that they will only aim for the highest quality products in the future. Full refunds are being offered for those disappointed with the figures.
