I think they have to pay for movie licensing on top of the usual character license. The Icon Heroes statues are $10 to $15 more than their usual non-movie statues.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Updated OP with official Koto US pix. Superman doesn't look like Henry Cavill.

WW looks really good not so sure about the likeness on Superman. Price wise these are getting up there with Iron Studios 1/10 scale which are around $95+ (now that they gotten world licenses) and their polystone compared to these which are PVC, if that matters to you.

PVC vs resin doesn't matter much if the likeness is not good. I haven't been impressed with Iron Studios small scale likenesses.

Aquaman likeness is off as well. WW and Batman look good, but I'm surprised the WW pose is identical to the Icon Heroes pose when the Icon Heroes statues for the other characters are different.

Yeah but PVC is usually a lot cheaper... I remember when Koto first came out with the Art+ line and they were around $40-$50.

Iron Studios has had some misses in the likeness department in their 1/10 but overall they've been pretty good. IMO anyways.. I'm always surprised how more accurate the likeness have been in the 1/10 scale (be it Koto or Iron Studios) compared to some companies who mostly struggle with likeness at a bigger 1/4 scale.

If WW has magnets in her feet like the other artfx+ statutes she could have balance problems but the Koto images look like she is pegged to the base.

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.
