would'nt call 2 an influx, been keeping an eye on the ebay shelves since i got one bout 10 days ago paid $549, if they're priced right (dont know if its reasonable) around $500-$550 they will sell, especially now she's recognized as a nice piece

if its a reg vampirella pf head I would say get the lara statue. The face is ugly on the regular head for vamp. I think the eyes are too far apart and it doesnt look right.

The EX head is the only way to go.

Both lara and vamp are top notch statues though

Get the piece in person and your impression of the regular head will do a complete 180.

I am really going to have a hard time deciding on what head to display when I put her in one of my cabinets. Both are excellent. I think I might display one on the statue (obviously), but I might make some kind of stand to display the second. They are just too beautiful to stay in the box. I've never had this issue before. With Ms. Marvel, I love the exclusive head way more. With Rogue, either head was just "ok."

I have seen both statues, but own neither. The characters and statues are both beautiful, but nothing I just died to have.

That being said-- Vampy (especially with the Ex head) is STUNNING.

So I would choose her.

I think the regular head appeals to me more because it reminds me of classic Vampirella, back in her Warren Publishing days. It is a good representation of how she was originally illustrated. The exclusive head is definitely an updated version of her, absence of bangs and the curly hair. Even the face shapes represent her publication history well. It feels like Sideshow really thought this piece through. It makes up for them forgetting the bat symbol.

I completely agree.

I just recently picked up 3 Vampi trades, the Crimson Chronicles Maximum which includes the first 37 stories of here ever, back in the 1969 on era. I also picked up the Crown of Worms and the Murder of Crows, which contains #1-7 and #8-11, respectively, of the new Dynamite Vampirella series.
