A. Id pay that if it was done well at the same scale

B. I think they could make the piece, or large sections like the hammer hollow to save on materials

C. They could play with scale and just make him bigger than Ornstein and Id be ok with that too

Alex seemed quite adamant against making Nito into scale and making it into a 900dollar statue. I don't see why not tbh for smough as long as the line continues to sell well and people want it enough.

I would pander a similar footprint to Nito at the 600-700 dollar range. Easy price accessibility is a serious consideration on F4F's part.

Unfortunately no they didn't. They said they were that it's EL wiring - and that's the brightest they go. Only LEDs go so bright but they are spotted dots and they wanted to avoid that.

Id take that. They could do a Smough thats the same height as Ornstein and maybe have the pillar be smaller to represent scale (or not even bother to reference scale since Im just mainly interested in a 1/4esque sized mock-up of that glorious armor).

I like the idea of Ornstein's Ex but I'm not a fan of how it turned out. The light up feature is pointless, not noticeable and will only cheapen the statue.

I would have preferred a clear resin effect without lights, this way they don't hollow out the base and figure for a useless feature no one will use.

Overall, it's a nice piece at a great price but I don't know if I should go for the regular instead.

It's the exact same price and it will be the same weight and design except without the extra arm, so unless you're saving on shipping or something might as well get ex

Not too crazy about the weak led lights, having strong leds is probably more true to the game. I'll probably be displaying the regular spear.

Word is out the actual depth of the piece is 70cm, I'm just Glad I can fit him in my pax now if I display him slightly on his side.

Exclusive might be the same price, but ppl can save from shipping and import costs if they pick it up from a local retailer. Sif regular versus exclusive is like a 230usd difference for me.

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.

So I received my Sif. A lot of people are complaning about the base, and it's not perfect but it looks great.

Here is my video review, with size comparison, prototype comparison and close-ups:

And here some pics to show you a bit what it looks like:
