Issues

The first 1,000 users to purchase this item were charged 1,000 Robux. But right after the item was sold out, users who attempted to purchase it were given an error message stating that they weren't charged for the purchase, and the item appeared in their inventory afterwards. All users who had more than 1,000 Robux in their account could receive the item for free while it was glitched. This issue could be subject to the fast influx of purchases causing the stock to break. The stock seemed to remain infinite (meaning it could be purchased indefinitely) and was not able to sell out. Even after the timer had ended, the item was not properly fixed. Approximately 2,527 non-serialized copies exist, bringing the total to 3,527 copies.

Criticism

Because of this unexpected glitch, the users who purchased it legitimately for 1,000 Robux were outraged and demanded Roblox to issue a refund since they weren't able to profit off of it. They criticized the staff for apparently "scamming" and "stealing" their Robux. A majority of these consumers pledged that they wanted the users who got it for free be harshly banned, or have the item taken away from them. But in reality, these users did not do anything wrong to violate the rules. They also condemned the glitch for ruining the true 'value' of the face. The next day, Roblox took the item offsale and the face was not possible to trade or sell. The item did get fixed afterwards, but it is likely that no users received refunds.
