Oh dear.

This won't end well, unless each sculpt is professionally painted by a master. If it comes out of China, re: painted in steps by non artists, it will be Sideshow quality.

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

I disagree.

Belgian youtubers/retailers Toysplanets posted a video yesterday where they summarized their recent visit to Oniri's showroom. In it, they talk about their RoboCop and how Oniri wanted to try their hand at silicone with something that wasn't that big of a risk, and at 15:40 they mention they got confirmation that the Terminator will not use that.

Fair enough.

So far I haven't seen a production piece in polystone that has achieved anything near what we see in silicone.

I know the Queen Studios pieces look promising, but let's talk after in hand production pieces start to flow.

I'm actually completely fine with that. Their Guts turned out well: http://www.statueforum.com/showpost....&postcount=162

Semi-translucent resin is still a great option and it'll have better longevity.

That Guts piece looks great, and polystone is ideal for anime / cartoon / comic pieces. Prime1 use translucent resin on their "realistic" pieces, and it doesn't translate. Actually you can see a great example on the Prime1 website by comparing their 1:2 Death Stranding statues......look at the difference between the silicone and non silicone pieces.

There's a great distance between silicone and "Sideshow quality". There are already in-hand products whose owners seem to be very pleased with.

Ah, I forgot that one - you're right! The punched hair version is not polystone, but even the sculpted hair version looks good.
