Do you know what's gonna happen after the 30 years period? will it just crack or rot like latex?
No idea. The QS WW will be my first silicone bust also.

You should ask people who collect Cinemaquette. Most of their pieces have silicon and they provide a powder to keep it looking okay. That said, there is a lifespan to silicon.

Personally, I would assume in getting a piece like this, that you should have an acrylic display case to keep the dust off. Getting dust off clothing is bad enough, but hair and silicon?

Thanks for the suggestion!

To answer that cinemaquette question, I’ve had a Indiana Jones one for years, it was on display for a couple years then for the last few years stored in my attic (which gets hot and cold so not ideal) and it’s not affected it one bit. In fact I’ve had polystone statues that were far worse affected.
Think about it, they use silicone to make everything from oven gloves to ice cube trays to the molds polystone statues are made in!. It’s not a fragile material.

Thank you so much for the info and reply, El Diablo! It really made me feel so much better with having a silicone bust!

Found this pic on Instagram -- so, is she undersized, or is Batman oversized? Compared to the first pics in this thread of the unpainted prototypes, one of them has drastically changed.

Between this and the Prime 1 Batfleck, it makes me think he's got something in his contract that his products have to be oversized compared to the rest of the Justice League.

I'm glad I'm getting her alone to not worry about scaling issues.
