I have the correct answer now

'It’s because the factory will do a light primer on the whiteware to see the imperfections better. The white version is the actual cast while the colored version is the primed one.' - Bryon Webster (PCS)

Ohhh, interesting. That is cool.

So, how long has it been since this went up for PO?
I think it looks nice. Hard to see the paint apps though. So far, they look a bit flat. I do like the regular head. But I know from the beginning the scary head wasn't great. Looked more like an unfinished concept.


Nevermind, found it:
"Mileena went up for order Monday December 12 2016 at 3:00 PM.
It was sold with an Estimated ship date of January 2018 so it is now a full 6 months past due."

It feels longer than that. Wow, two years to produce such a simple piece.

I'd assume the flatness is caused by low quality video (mobile phone?)

Time fly's. Agreed, this piece should have shipped 6+ months ago.
I guess Jerry is to blame (for the delay) for his lack of business ability to get the piece to production sooner. Jerry should stick to sculpting.

A big thanks to Ant & Co. to sorting out the mess PCS found it'self in, and continues to climb out of.

From a paint app perspective, i guess it is safe to assume factories view such pieces as Mileena with their 3 color combo (purple, black, skin tone) straight forward to reproduce.

The statue in the background is Cobra the Space Pirate from Oniri Creations


This image shows the level of quality the factory is able to produce (assuming this isn't the prototype )
Fingers crossed, MK Mileena should turn out great!

It appears that PCS used the exact same still (from video) as can be seen here for their latest Instagram post

On a side note. No PCS email this Sunday?
There didn't appear to be an email last Sunday either?
..although someone here claims to have received an email.

I received yesterdays (Sundays) email. It came later than usual. That still doesn't explain the previous weeks email (lack of). To big issue
