I posted a picture of my personal Myers mask on Facebook to these guys and said if they needed a really good reference for a mask, to look at mine. I was thanked by Ant within a few minutes and told they have plenty of reference pics. Then the preorder pic surfaced, and all I saw was an H6/H7 head sculpt. They have plenty of reference pics, I guess. I hope to see a revised picture of a definitive H1 Myers before preorder day.

I've spent thousands on Popcultureshock statues, and was really looking forward to this piece as my definitive Halloween statue. I have an epic Halloween poster that is signed by Jamie Lee Curtis, John Carpenter, and Nick Castle "The Shape", this statue would go great with it.

With all due respect as of right now I'm not pulling the trigger for the reasons many have said.

+ Myers Stance
+ Staircase base

- The mask is off, looks like a mashup I cant quite put my finger on it, head too "Wide" maybe
- The body is too thick and bulky. The statue actually looks like the body shape from Halloween 6: Curse of Michael Myers

It seems to me the whole statue needs "thinning" out. On a personal note I would make the clothes a touch brighter blue and the mask a tad brighter white.

While I have a lot of issues with this statue, coming from a hardcore Carpenter and Halloween fan, i disagree with some of your criticisms.

The main criticism, which I agree with , is that his mask is completely off, and his facial shape is too wide as you stated; Nick Castle's H1 face was much more elongated.

However, I don't agree that his body is wrong, definitely not the size of Wilbur from H6 anyway. That dude was chubby, and this guy isn't. Compare the product to the screenshot of Michael on the stairs from the movie, and you will see they are almost identical. Maybe bring the boiler suit in at the waist a little, but that's about it. I also think the colours are fine for the suit, as is the mask.

His pose is great, but I think it should resemble the scene from the movie exactly, as it doesn't translate accurately at the moment. He looks to be in an offensive position with his knife hand out, where as in the film he was simply standing , slightly forward position with his knife hand just in front of him in an almost 'supernatural' stance. Like he doesn't know what he's doing with the knife, it's just there. Kind of like what Michael was like with the scalpel in H2, it was just there as an extension of his body, he never had his arm extended with the scalpel, much like the knife, it was just slightly out there from his mid-riff.

Case in point, his knife hand needs to be brought in to where his stomach is , and he needs to not be lunging forward as much.
