What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

Looks very nice; also on the fence to get it (if still available though). Is this a paintissue of some sort?

They had little black nicks on some of the edging that was supposedly battle damage. At the time of reveal, not many people were fond of them and asked for it to be removed, but it sounds (without direct confirmation) that they were there at the request of Capcom.

I'm a bit disappointed they still had them in the final, because I don't feel like they were detailed enough to come across like weathered edges. They should have been silver instead of black, and a little larger with rougher edges.

They read as paint defects to me, and not in Mega Man's world and the narrative of the piece, but in our world just as a statue. They do match the prototype though, so in short - no, alas, it's not a paint issue.

Looks great Dead. Mine should be here around New Years, very excited after seeing your pictures. Your Simon, Zero, etc. setup looks just like mine. I've got HMO X and Dracula where your smaller pieces are.

Thank you. Looks spot on. Quite a F4F Quad Squad you have going on there. Look forward to the review video.

Yeah it's my least fave part of the statue tbh, but it's like 1% off of 100%.

If you look ont he foot of the Metall pic i took it has like "stylized" damage, MM has this also but I really like them, the ones on the head look a bit more like rubs but are 100% there intentionally.

I honestly think they did such a bloody good job on it, I've said for a long time but F4F's proto production are 2nd to none. I have full confidence in them. Which was why Guts was such a massive let down for me...only F4F piece I have returned, and honestly they were f-cking excellent about the whole return and gave me all my shipping/rewards back and everything...i can never praise Alex and F4F enough!

Looking forward to War being delivered and the Death PO now.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Hey gang, after months of being stuck at port and warehouses I finally got him yesterday. Great piece, easy assembly and a nice light up. I personally don't mind the weathering but refer to dead's writeup on the piece if you want a more thorough opinion on it.

That glossy metallic blue is beautiful! I kind of wish the original MM statue had that now...

Also, F4F has some of the nicest light-up features I've ever seen!

Thanks for the pics!
