No problem, they are great about answering questions.

No one here is trying to cause drama, but we have legitimate concerns about this piece that we love and had hoped to purchase.

I suppose its settled then, thanks to everyone who helped get to the bottom of this, i've never seen such a dramatic change from lighting. Still hard to believe the tone hasn't been darkened looking at those photos.

Yeah, I've never seen anything like it. It must be some seriously crazy lighting. But I trust Seng 100% so if he says he didn't change the paint then it's not changed.

I never said Radd titan said anything about changing storm, in the video they in fact showed nothing but praise. I suppose i worded my answer to Northerns question of 'do they really only listen to a tiny subset of particular customers' wrong.

What i was saying was Radd titans group or audience likely are some of those who have an influence on certain design decisions XM may or may not make. As RT content is mostly xm, i would imagine RT has a large fanbase of XM collectors/customers. It only makes sense that RT(among others) become a medium for expressing customer concern.

Now my speculation is that their videos(which i'm sure they shared in their group) make storm look quite red, which i could see prompting some to raise this concern to make storm "less red" admittedly there are photos too but their videos make storm look the reddest from what i've seen.
Couldn't be further from the truth...RT covers everything. I would say the majority of people in the facebook group are pro SS 1st...bunch of pansies IMO (I'm saying this jokingly btw)...followed by XM and Prime 1 lovers equally. Hell, there may be more Prime 1 lovers now that I think about it.

So I was just thinking this, most of the x-men characters released have all had sentinel bases, Magneto, Wolverine, Phoenix, Cable and Storm has no hint of one which I find odd. Now I’m not complaining about the current base because it fits the character perfectly but I just find it odd. Does nyone know if they are abandoning the sentinel bases now?

Stating that the majority of people in their Facebook group are pro SS has nothing to do with what i’m talking about. Again maybe wrong wording in saying “mostly xm”, what i’m saying is out of everyone who covers xm, they cover xm the most, they go the most in-depth, they have the most xm related content on their page from what i’ve seen(nothing wrong with that).

Which lead to my assumption that RT has one of the larger XM followings, not that they’re anti-SS, anti-P1 or that they don’t like, cover or have an interest in other companies.

Storm's actual skin tone, in case anyone is wondering:



I think this statue is spot on...especially the portrait shown above.
