Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I'm too lazy to search the forum, but PCS said that from this point forward, the statue you see on the preview pics is the statue they will be producing, no exception. This was in reply to the promised but not delivered changes to Camouflage Conan and Rambo hand. They said they simply can not stop production that late in the development and change things.
Perhaps someone who has the patience can find that post, I believe it was in the Rambo thread.

Found it...page 88 of the Conan thread...

From Facebook concerning the decision to not change the Conan War paint pattern.
It may be safe to assume the Rambo Hand will not be changed, however they are tweaking the hair there may be hope,......

Quote from Red Ant.....
Apologies for the delayed reply, but please keep in mind I have two jobs and a family. So Iím doing my best to keep up. Now on war paint. It is too late to make any changes as Conan is leaving China in November. To Brian point, Jerry used the painter as Sideshow. I wish it was a easy fix, but itís not and would move Conan to Jan/Feb leave factory date. Plus could possibly cause the factory to drop the project all together. This was a lot of the issues PCS had in the past with super late deliveries because there were last minute requests and factories dropping projects. We are moving to where the preorders will be factory samples. This will quicken delivery dates AND what you see at preorder will be what you get (unless we throw in extras like we did with Akuma Ultimate).

I'm not so sure this is a factory sample as he is speaking of there.
They were gonna show this at Monsterpalooza but it wasn't ready.

Guile at PO was definitely too good to be a factory sample.

It's easy to say they will only show samples but implementing it is a whole other matter and would require delaying some much needed PO income.

Jerry said he'd fix Conan before it even went up for order...
in June 2016. He never was going to pay the money to fix it because he had the opportunity and instead did nothing especially once he intended to sell PCS.

In this game you can't trust what you hear or even what you see before delivery.

Couldnt agree more. Ill have it corrected, but pre-ordering is moving along as planned.

I rely on others, who unfortunately drop the ball far too often. So when I ask my team 'is this war paint correct', and they reply 'yes', I take their word for it.

My bad. Ill take care of it...

I don't think he was talking about factory production pieces, but rather the final prototype that is sent to the factory to reproduce. That is a "factory sample" I think he was referring to. Although if that is the case, the correct term would be factory master I think.
Meaning, the prototype in the PO picture is the factory sample that they will use to replicate the statue, no further changes once the factory sample is completed, photographed, and put up for PO.

I think the comment related to a piece in production at the factory. Halloween is different, as i'm assuming it's at prototype stage, not factory stage, although very close.

I can't imagine PCS changing the Halloween statue, as on Instagram, the comments are positive.

Looks like an alternate mask is in the works, and I'm back art directing it. This could be even better than I hoped.
So multiple heads? Wait for the PO info....

If that's the case, it's pretty stupid to preview a Michael Myers that is based on his Halloween 1 appearance, with a mask that is not Halloween 1. Easiest way to deter potential buyers

Plus, with all this criticism, surely it would be logical for someone from pcs to come out and say 'we have other portraits planned. Don't worry.'

why would they show the preview with a non 78 looking mask, i am sure if they had a better mask it would have been shown instead or even after the flack this mask has taken, if there is another mask it is probably the same bad mask with blood tears or something like that, do not get your hopes up if you are thinking this is an alternate mask and the real 78 one is a bonus, this is the main mask and it is a disaster.
