Well radio silence from Sideshow so far. Can't say I'm surprised.

So not even the same scale as Dizzy then? I'm glad they are continuing the line though mix and matching scales is a little annoying. That being said I have no interest in buying Ky or Sol so I'll skip that and hope for others afterward.

Yeah two sides to this...

Selfish - YES at last 1/4 GG statues and a 1/4 Diorama...prob gonna be super expensive though...

That sucks - Everyone who got Dizzy waited all that time, was hoping there would be a consistent line, feels like they suckered them...

This is the thing why PCS succeeded with their MM line...consistency, people like to build a collection of similar looking and same scaled statues and the deeper it goes the more popular it gets...

Well Sideshow got back to me. I can take a $100 credit or return it for full refund. Not sure which I'll do. On one hand that's a decent amount of credit, but the broken effect destroys her resell value (if I ever need to do it). On the other hand, I could refund her, but she's waitlisted now and I'm sure the only time the waitlist will open will just be to send people broken units they fixed.

Edit: If this is going to be their only GG piece in this scale maybe I should just refund her as much as I like the statue.

Against my better judgment I have decided to keep her and take the credit. I tried gluing the piece and from display angles you don't notice the breakage, though it is very obvious upon inspection that it was glued. The main reasons I kept it were:

1) She is a nightmare to disassemble and repackage. Sideshow told me to assemble her to check for other possible defects and breakages. I am never listening to this advice ever again. If she hadn't been such a pain to get back into the box I would have returned her.

2) She is really really nice. This is one of the best statues I've gotten in recent years. She looks so good on display. The paint app colors really pop and the details on the sculpt are so easy to see even from far away. Her display presence is huge.

I think I'll be weary of these ridiculous long narrow effect statues in the future though. This just shouldn't be a thing. If they want to make a statue with stuff like this then they shouldn't use resin for those pieces. It should be something more flexible like what F4F did with Simon Belmont's whip. And I guess I'll cross my fingers that Kinetiquettes will still opt to make some more Guilty Gear pieces at this scale. I-No was recently announced for Strive so it seems like a good chance to do a horizontal chemical love piece of a similar style to this Dizzy. Jam and Baiken would be wonderful inclusions as well.
