I'll quote myself here.

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

This is cool.

I have the Premium Format, and i really like it. Sideshow did a good job sculpting Arnold's physique, good proportions. I personally don't see major scale issues with this piece. The likeness could be better, a little soft for my liking. Could PCS do a better job? probably, but i think i'd rather have something we haven't seen before.

I really like the first image Gruson posted.


but if you choose to produce this definitive pose, i would rather his hands/grip more aggressive like this


I really iike Wand's last image:

That is a beautiful museum pose that would lend itself perfectly to the scale. That pose kicks ass.

another one to consider is Renato Casaro's movie poster

something different, pretty sick as it's Arnold's likeness in the poster. not sure if your license covers that.

King Conan, EPIC.


Pit Fighter, the meanest on-screen Conan


Battle Armor, great helmet!


awesome pose, but too concealing for a 1:3 scale statue



here's Edinho Maga's 1:3 scale Destroyer with the man himself!

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.

Should we start arguing over ES now?? ��

Hey PCS how about you make two so everyone is happy: king Conan and the cover picture of him holding the sword.

Not a fan of the proposed museum pose. Very dull.

i agree about it being "dull". but that's what's charming about it, especially at 1:3 scale. i like that it's a straight forward unobstructed shot of Conan. Arnold's legendary physique is is captured perfectly in this natural relaxed pose. The position of this two hands, posture and all accessories help frame this ideal Conan museum pose.

out of all the pics posted aside from King Conan, i'i would pay for wand's final pic, but that's just me

Something like this with real hair, leather pants, nice cloth rug/pillow... Has to be different than anything done before IMO...

I agree with Bob. I find that one too symmetrical. Not that I'm against symmetrical statues per se —woud love a Reeve Superman in his arms akimbo pose—, but I'd rather have Arnie posed differently.

1. Normal classic Conan, no shirt, with sword. Most iconic for sure:

Classic but a lot of skin showing so not sure how real it can look.

2. War Paint Version (Sideshow did this one)
Awesome scene but not sure if you want to do something that Sideshow has done. The Sideshow piece is very nice but even smaller than 1/4 scale so we could use a bigger one! With the paint, it may look better as statue since not all bare skin?



3. End Battle Conan
More clothing and from a classic scene. Not as iconic as normal Conan but maybe clothing can be removable and switch head? Not sure.


Those are what comes to mind when I think Arnold Conan. Very excited with any version but hoping for no shirt, iconic Conan in museum pose. With 1/3 scale they take up a lot of space already and dynamic poses usually make it even harder to display. I like what you have done with the poses with the other 1/3 pieces. Arnold holding sword in front of him, looking serious is what I think of with Conan
Thanks Gruson, you made this alot easier with this post

Personally I'd really like #3 be made. Thats the one, final battle armor, I'd be most interested in.
Honestly don't think you can go wrong with any of them though. I'm sure Jerry and co. will make this awesome no matter the pose/scene they choose. Can't wait to see it!

Also I like the museum pose best. I want to see Arnolds muscles. Not battle armor.
