Statue looks good. Nothing wrong with it imo.
Agreed its priced too high considering the simple base and minimal details...
but for Cammy fans and those who collect 1:3, this is prob gonna be the best we will get in the next several years...and PCS knows that...

It only has to do with manufacturing costs and their model to produce fewer pieces for those willing to pay a premium. PCS does not have the manufacturing leverage of larger companies or pieces priced 6-12 months ago nor the benefit of large actually produced ES's.

And clearly with their cash problems their past pricing strategies were delusional.

Basically what everyone was accustomed to with PCS was never sustainable.

There's no point in preordering if they're going to cancel the statues due to low orders and take your money in the process. We shouldn't trust PCS on anything moving forward until they commit to creating a statue, and buy when it's actually released.

You talk of Jerry M. era PCS

New PCS sales are taken via Sideshow Collectibles, so i think anyone pre_ordering is safe. By safe, i mean if the piece fails to happen you will receive any monies paid. I think Cammy 1/3 will sell, even at that high price. There might a couple hanging around towards the end, and possibly a deal to be had

did you not see everyone that got new Raiden, shao khan on a throne and one other statue that didn't get a refund for their deposits despite them being cancelled!? They asked sideshow customer service for a refund, and SS CS said they don't handle that and to go get it from sales@pcstoys.com or just get SS credit back.

As far as i recall, wasn't Jerry still on board at PCS around this time, as i recall him showing the pieces at a con via a YouTube video. Shortly after the con Jerry had moved on from PCS, as a result of artistic differences with the new owners.

Don't know your Problems with the statue guys. PCS is one of the few Companies who offers high Quality Street Fighter statues and comparing Prime1 with PCS prices isn't really fair. Prime1 has the big and hot licences and the demand on batman statues is far higher than on street fighter statues, showing in their Edition sizes. On such low Edition sizes you have to cut the costs on details otherwise you get a 3k pricetag like the venompool piece to justify the amount of Quality.

Cammy turned out great and eventho I am not gonna purchase her myself, I'm glad there is at least someone who crafts SF statues at such high Level. Can't wait for the Sakura statue to be released.

Sakura 1/4 looks great, the non smiling portrait atleast.
I'm still tempted to pick that piece up
