[QUOTE=HeavyMetalSpike;5521023]I think I've worked out what they are up to.

People will be so relieved when it comes through made of polystone that they'll welcome all the the things pointed out originally as faults/concerns/criticisms with open arms and praise . . .


Lol typical of SS to get away with these things.

Perfectly assessed. Couldn't agree more. The proportions are soooooooooo off. The position of the armor doesn't make sense and is an eye sore. You're instantly drawn to it. I thought about rolling the dice on this because Jungle Predator is my fave. So if they do a bad job with the unmasked portrait, well I'm okay with displaying him with the masked head. But wait, can't do that because he looks like a bobble head. And now, we have to worry about if they cheap out on this guy. Is anyone buying this guy?

Im waiting it out for Prime 1 to release their Predators. It's just too bad they aren't releasing Jungle Predator first though.

Hi there!

Thank you for reaching out to us! At this time, we are told that the Jungle Predator is a combination of polyresin and fabric elements.

Lol! That's straight off the description on the website. HOWEVER! As the description does not mention PVC anywhere, if it turns out they made this out of PVC then every single person who ordered would be entitled to a refund since that is misleading. I don't think this one is going to be PVC though, I think it's going to be similar to the P2 Maquette.

I know right lol. Did not help at all haha. That is true and interesting to see if they try to pull a wolf on this. Heavy Metal Spike posted his assessment(which I fully agree) and even if others don't agree, very valid and fair points. I can't see this having a good reception. Imo of course.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

You're right.

They are missing from the chest as well.
  • Neither were on the SWS maquette, but doesn't detract from THAT because everything else is done so well.
  • Doesn't detract from the NEW maquette considering how bad all the other issues are.
YMMV of course.

But again - you're quite correct
