Man I've bought some pieces from them but they seem to be going the way of Gentle Giant. Did they loose a sculptor or something?

I'd been waiting for Kain forever but nothing since Raziel seems to be 'good' (ymmv)

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

If its any consolation Mame Gyorai just put up their 1/9 scale figure/dio on Ami ami. Bad news it's around $330 USD for a 22 centimetre piece.

Yeah I saw that one from Mame Gyorai, too expensive I think. The details are very good (at least for the prototype, not sure about final piece, never heard about them before). Also not sure about the faces, especially Ellie's one.

It's the same company that made the hunched over Big Chap Alien statue last year. You can check it out on Sideshow.

The product description on the GH website claims that statue was created using "in game files."

"In-game files were used in creating Ellie (a big thank you to the Naughty Dog team)..."

But i concur, it does not match the quality of the game (the head sculpt in particular), considering the scale and price.

Like others have mentioned, other companies have made leaps and bounds in their quality the last several years. GH has not progressed.

I still sort of regret getting their Tomb Raider reboot statue a few years ago. at the time, i was still a novice and had just entered the rabbit hole that is is the premium collectible hobby.

I ended up preordering this piece, although i agree that it's pricey considering the smaller scale.

The artist seemed to take a slightly stylized approach (dare I say, a little anime-esque?) - as you pointed out, something seemed peculiar about Ellie's face.

This statue is a little reminiscent of the PS3 Collector's Edition statue that was included in the Post Pandemic Edition - i think that's why i ended buying the Mame Gyorai statue.
