Sorry but this is SO wrong on SO many levels. How can you say pcs isn't even PARTIALLY responsible for the aftermarket hikes and what is being payed?!

The owner of the company himself has been on record saying he wants his pieces to raise in value in the aftermarket. So what does he do? He creates low ES's and great sculpts.

That in turn caused his PO's to sell out at lightning quick speeds.

But then he either isn't delivering in quality, which cause people to cancel. Or he adds replacement (aps) into the mix. Both are adding to the es increases and BOTH are pcs's fault.

Granted part of the problem is the oversatuation of product on the market, but these faults are a BIG cause.

Hell I would have certainly kept my scorpion had the quality of the production been excellent. One less of the 250 run available but I cancelled it.

I feel companies owe us quality pieces. That IS on them. Your stance makes you sound like none of this is an issue!

The fact remains: Quanlity is to be expected, not raising the es is mandatory and treating your own product with respect is crucial in being successful as a business.

Damn I don't have a number 10 so screw it here is your number 10 FERRARI.
This post I agree with. Your other one not at all.

Jerry might not be the best business man, but he is the most fun.
Has the best sculpts, and gives us our favourite franchise statues.

If Jerry ever quit making statues, i personally would quit collecting statues too.
Would feel so empty without Him.

All we need is more interaction from him on fb and the forums!!

"Best sculpts" is very subjective term (I appreciate it's you opinion) but I don't think Jerry would say he is better than Steve Wang for example. Interactions on Facebook and other places like this forum are like stepping in to a inferno which really only someone courting to be burnt would go, this is not helped by the terrible customer service which festers contempt. social media witch hunts are becoming a far more common thing nowadays. I am sure you would find something else to fill that hole if Jerry did ever down sculpting tools.

Had to look up Steve Wang... yeah, his work looks legit. Monster-wise, he looks to be right up there with Jerry. But his subjects are the generic AvP type stuff. His muscle anatomy doesn't look remarkable. I just see a lot of busts with generic art direction.

Ultimately, I'm only putting my money down for subjects/licenses that interest me. Jerry has persisted with niche licenses (compared to the overdone Marvel, DC, Terminator, AvP, etc.) that also best showcase his abilities (muscles).

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

Steve wang and Jerry are good friends according to Jerry. Both run different operations both price points are massively different. Both sculptors are different and both talented. Steve wang sculpted cinemaquette predator Jerry sculpted Akuma they both did pretty well for themselves.
