I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

Should always at least open for inspection.

I had a dream that you forgot to pay that storage locker and I was one of those annoying Americans thats on the History Channel show I forget the name Storage Kings or something.

I won the bidding war and ended up opening up my locker to find it filled with all your lovely unopened one of a kind PCS super exclusives.

What a lovely dream it was not sure you would have liked it much though

Question for Jerry (or anyone who knows): while debating with version to order, I noticed the yellow stripes going down the side of Chun Li's outfit on the Alpha version stop at her ankle. I don't remember if it's game-accurate or not, but the abrupt transition to the blue outlines of where the yellow ones seem like they would extend looks a bit rough, IMO. Is this what the production piece will look like? Thanks in advance.

Yeah really hope for that warehouse by that time. I wouldn't even mind waiting a year or two on the Legacy Chun Li more just for that warehouse in Europe. At this moment I'm counting on over 1000 Euro/US Dollar on just shipping, customs check and tax(= 21% over the retail price + shipping).

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

Jerry, question on the Battle - Is the upper chest smoothed out so there's a natural slope to the breasts, so they don't look like 2 round objects stuck onto a flat chest? It's hard to tell from the new pictures.

Reason I ask is I remember the WIP pics and people complaining about this, and your answer was it was all about how they look under clothing, not how they look without clothing. Which makes sense. But I was wondering if they were touched up to look natural on the Battle version, since that one has exposed cleavage. One of my pet peeves is when some makers sculpt the breasts to look like two round grapefruits stuck to the chest.

It matters to me because I'm suddenly considering this piece. Thanks!

It's fine on the other two because the dresses break up the silhouette. I think the hips and legs need to be toned down on the Alpha version though.

I do agree that I wish her hips were thinner and she had more athletic build instead of the powerhouse build because this is supposed to be Younger Chun Li but the problem is he'd have to resculpt the entire body to fit including the upper torso, because the hand placement would be off as well. Also, I sure as hell would never display Chunners at that display angle lol
