A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

I think the sculpt is there, but the paint isn't doing it justice. It looks like Sam, but it also doesn't. I wouldn't be surprised if they rushed the paint to have him on display at SDCC. A repaint might improve the likeness.

LOL The bad pics WERE from the company. They were on the CC Instagram.

Even if other companies will release their take on some characters, with translucent resin, mixed media and real hair (hope so), i like the "statue feel" this one has.
But i'm used to own multiple versions of things anyway..

Can't imagine a bad response in person at the booth. On Forums bad pics have devastating effects as usual, but it seems people already realized this is a good piece.

Or maybe a Rex footprint with (clear resin) puddle in the base so it would reflect the flare.
That's a brilliant idea.

What's wrong with the paint though?



That bandana would be repainted immediately, but i think the rest is actually great.

Usually their 1:4 statues for SDCC are painted by Jacob Rahmier in person..

The second set of pics make Grant's face look much better IMO.

A 1/4 human line is an interesting idea. I'm not sure if I'll go in on it but Grant does look pretty cool. Love the base!

In general the best pics of the show I've seen are from toyark. Now suddenly it's Sam Neill

As a photographer my self, it's really the lighting that does it. I might as go as far as suggesting the brand to let us know which angle of light suits the statue the most.
