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

Wow, now that she has all this legal backstory is having her on display considered an act of public domain sovereignty??

But since this thread was intellectualized, when I look at her, I now think about

Le penseur de Rodin.

Both are thinking, but what are they thinking...

He is thinking...’wonder what I should use for toilet paper?’

ERB estate is pretty good at this and they've been doing it a long time.
You can get away with reproducing the original novels as they are public domain.
You can get away with adapting the original novels into new media forms. Dynamite did this when they did the Lord of the Jungle and Warlord of Mars comic series.
ERB couldn't do anything but stomp their feet publicly.
In the end, both sides came to a licensing agreement instead and Dynamite got the Tarzan and John Carter licenses.
But the characters are all individually trademarked as well. And that lasts forever.

Disney did much of the work in this regard and ERB estate know they have the backing of one of the richest companies on Earth who fight these legal cases until the end of time.
Many of Sideshow's licenses are Disney. They aren't going to get in a fight with the ERB estate over this.
I'm surprised they tried to get away with it to begin with.
Maybe they thought ERB only cared about the Tarzan trademark and wouldn't call them on this statue.

I will be amazed if the factory comes close to proto. I'm assuming the skin tone will be a single shade of color, over which they'll perform a quick second darker skin shade here and there, like they did with Aspen.

Depending on the factory used, they'll either place a ton of effort into the portrait paint app, or miss the mark massively.

I wouldn't consider this piece until in hand images surface. I wouldn't even trust the Sideshow out of the box video when it appears, as the out of the box piece never has issues

There are those that order knowing they can return the piece. Receiving a piece, then returning the piece takes time & effort.
