Borrow money from a pessimist, they don't expect it back.

I just found out about this statue now, after recieving the email from Sideshow.
Even though I stopped collecting Aspen prints a few years ago, I still love the works of Turner, and most likely will add this to my collection! (But not the art print tho!)

It's a good print but I don't want it.

You should be mature enough to realise that airing your uncertainties on this forum won't achieve anything other than to start a conflict of ideas. In fact, that had already begun with the "You've been really lucky" vs "You've been really unlucky" debate!

Let's put it like this - there's nothing anyone can tell you here, that would remove your doubts. Likewise, you will not get any cast iron guarantees from Sideshow - so, what are your options?

While you were probably getting ready for 10 pages of back and forth, focused on your (1st world) insecurities - I summed up the whole debate and it's conclusion in one post.
I guess I can find your post, in a form or another, in just about every Sideshow thread.
Write it in the stone.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

There is no denying that Sideshow has had some quality control problems over the years and have even released a few disappointing statues here and there, but overall most people had to have been satisfied with their purchases for Sideshow to get to where they are now.

Not to mention, the last couple years running there has been a dramatic decrease in the number of complaints on Statue Forum, which given only represents a small fraction of the overall market, but its a large enough sample size to be able to make some accurate predictions for the overall market from the responces you see for each release. The fact that people are still willing to buy Sideshow statues, and in greater numbers than ever before, even in light of the roughly 30-40%+ increase we have seen in prices is HUGELY telling in regards to the satisfaction level of most Sideshow customers.

I could just as easily say, you've just been unlucky and based on how successful Sideshow has been, especially these last few years, that comment holds up to scrutiny MUCH more so than the "you've just been lucky" statement.
It actually pains me how many logical fallacies you spat out there. Not even wasting my time to refute any of that mess.

Bottom line is these days almost no statue increases in value much, it is probably worth the risk for international buyers to wait it out and make sure it turns out well.

Excellent! So you agree with me, there's no need to perpetuate the discussion any further!
