Big tip. Don't put statues where people can brush past them.

He's a thin limbed character with a chest for a body....he's only gonna weigh what he weighs....they can't make it weigh more than it is lol were not talking a huge character clad in thick armour.

I'm sure F4f will do everything they can to make this structurally sound, infact I know for a fact they'll be running a metal skeleton through the entire thing. A bit of flex here and there is a good thing it's usually when things are super rigid that they break...

Il agree with you on paint app. Close up pictures of the details are top notch.
Of course he's going to be more top heavy but as I've hold him back then, he's well constructed to balance it out. Not to mention the metal pegs he's secured with in the bottom. And I would never put statues in a place where people can accidentally brush past them...

So Solaire is just awesome! First 4 Figures production is just so good, paints are all so clean, well detailed, the mixed media fur is done super well, light up is great and the swap outs all work perfectly!

Another triumph for F4F and a great addition to the line.

Video review is here if you want to hear me waffle on for 25 mins but i do film Arty, Solaire and Sif together at the end if you want to skip around!

Indeed amazing job on this one from F4F.

I personally got the combo and the parise the sun ed. is pretty sweet as well.
That said I do feel like they should have used a semi-opaque resin so we don't see the leds that much.

I am also surprised that Solaire is about 1:5 and not 1:6 as I expected.










Here is my unboxing video with size comparison, close-ups, etc. :

I actually went over this in my video, he's 13 inches from the back of his feet to the top of his head, with the helmet on that's pretty much spot on for 1:6 scale.

I don't know where people are getting 1:5 scale from, if he was 1:5 he would be at least 16 inches tall which he clearly is not.

If 1:6 is 12 inches tall then 1:5 is exactly 14.4 inches tall. And as you said he is about 13 '' tall so he is really between the 2.
He also looks 1:5 because he is high on his toes. He looks big beside the Geccos.


That's why I said about 1:5, and not exactly 1:6 as I expected.

But yeah, he is not exactly 1:5. He is between the 2. Hope it's a little more clear that way.....
