Finally opened mine. She came out wonderfully. The details all over the sculpt are really impressive. This is a very good statue. I love the execution and it actually does the one leg up pose nicely. I am a little worried she will topple over. I'm assuming they thought this through in the designing phase, but I can't help but notice how all the weight seems to be shifting toward one direction. She also shakes softly if you slightly move the table she's on. In my case it is a computer desk and every time I type, she shakes. It has me somewhat worried.

My statue is as solid as a rock. She has a peg on each foot that goes into that very heavy base. I cannot imagine why yours would wobble at all. Do you have any pics?

Great statue but the poly stone material is not good. Trying to box my statue and the peg got stuck in the hole, the feet came off instead...

They are a tight fit, you have to be gentle. I would not blame the material she is made of.

Mine looks great, weapon hand won't stay though as the magnets repel eachother. Blizz will send a new one after I send pics of it broken.

can you give more detail, i opened mine after reading your post. But there is no magnet? her bow hand just plugs into the body, there is no magnet....

The statue is the definition of perfection, from the packaging with plastic boxes securing all fragile pieces, to the flawless paint/sculpt, then the $350 price point, topped off by shipping in weeks, not years.

All those whining from sideshow / pcs about how factories are expensive now that's why their statues cost $500+, takes 2 years to ship, and then you have to roll the dice if it turns out to be crap or not. We now know it's all complete bs, blizzard just exposed them.

Blizzard's execution is really on a level of its own and it shows what a professional company with proper focus on quality does. The entire industry should be like this, but sadly we are not even close. I wish blizzard will release more statues! /soapbox off

Agree with you 100% gagaliya. I own all the SS Blizzard offerings from Tychus to Deathwing. Lich King was the only piece that came to me with zero issues. My DW has a wing that doesn’ even fit in perfectly. SS didn’t even have enough on hand for a replacement so I had to settle on their $90 peace offering.

I’ve picked up every Blizz made statue and it’s like night and day. after seeing how they packaged Illidans glaives and seeing they carried that over to Silvanas I was pleasantly surprised. I even give them a pass on the face issues Tracer had because they actually cared to fix it on their second run.

No soap box needed.
