You are basically paying the higher mark-up on more cheap resin instead of paying what's really expensive, the skill of the sculptor and the intricacies . Makes no sense.


So what other moniker's do we have for all these companies?

SS = Greedshow
XM = Xtra Monies
Prime 1 = Prime Dollars?

What is Tweeterheads and PCS? Funny stuff.

I don't see what you are doing as harming anyone else. I appreciate all the postings of pics you do. I'm too damn lazy to search through a sea of stuff.
Like you said i hurt no one with it, but if you do different things as the normal ones they find a way to hate it.

Unlike most people, I think the portrait is the best thing about the statue. It is nice to see XM trying something other than their usual plastic doll face and something with more personality. I am worried about the production piece quality though. It looks like the type of portrait that can be easily messed up during production.

Harley has always been cute, even attractive. This portrait is very much the antithesis of that. In that regard this is a pretty big miss in my eyes. Otherwise this is a fantastic looking, highly detailed piece. Ultimately not my preferred look of her however as Ive always been a bigger fan of the original white face, mask and one piece black & red outfit.

+1000. This portrait is a win in my eyes. I stand by what I said last year:

The EX portrait of the second SSC PF would be it in my opinion. OMG, I find it unbearably ugly.

Lol, Helluva way to call the portrait ugly without using the word. You were courteous yet to the point, a man of sophistication.

Damn straight, Hellboy. Damn straight!



I like the portrait, I just wish the eyes weren’t AGAIN dead. It’s like the dead lights possess every XM statue. Storm is the only exception and that’s bc she has no irises.
