Also shipping him from Cali to NY, no way, easy $250 if not more.
I took the L on this and just put my money toward the 1/3 Darkside Catwoman. I missed the Blitzway one but didn?t want to miss out on this one..plusfree shipping, so the $200 loss didn?t feel as big.

I think you both dodged bullets.

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

Just waiting on the shipping quote now. There's been space and custom acrylic case made for this piece a long time ago.

Yeah, normally I’d be double guessing myself, not so much this time. Don’t get me wrong, I did like the art direction at first and I knew he was big when I first ordered him. But after seeing him next to other pieces, it just looked too off. This would have been Venom statue #7 for me so that also helped in my decision, not like I don’t have one to fall back on, and it being Venom I’m 100% positive there will be more down the line.

Nice, wish I could have done that myself, but space is tight around here. Would love to know how much shipping is.

XM Studios News

Pictures from the released XM Studios Venom (Arise) 1/4 Statue by Art Statue Collector.

"A hulking and twisted distortion of Spider-Man, Venom is the result of an alien symbiote merged with a human holding a bitter grudge against Peter Parker. This combination has proven nearly lethal to the wall-crawler numerous times. Despite his hatred of Spider-Man, Venom has a twisted sense of morality, avoiding harming anyone he deems to be innocent and even performing heroic deeds. However, it is never clear how long Venom's darker impulses can be held in check. No matter how hard anyone tries to keep the symbiote down, Venom always manages to come back, like a plague."

The green saliva head is the only way to go on this one imo. I just don't think Mcfarlane sculpts look good on extremely textured bodies.
