Just added this beauty to my collection! Thought it would look good with my Colossus and Wolverine PFs. Eventually would like to add Storm and Cyclops to round out the display.

Was a "bear" to get the styrofoam/statue safely out of the art box without damaging the art box.

Took advantage of the New Years 10% off and points to reduce cost and offset tax and high shipping.

Sorry - Still haven't figured how to vertically flip the pics

Looking good tdevo.

Packaging is there to protect the statue, so I'm glad it's there.

However, I'm always super nervous when I'm unboxing a statue because I'm afraid I will somehow break something.

Best advise I can give is to go slow and use a large table for assembling.)

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

Seems that way. I don't think they've revealed a new Marvel/DC statue since comic con. But check out the 12 days thread for conspiracies haha

Agreed. The problem I had was actually pushing the styrofoam out of the art box. Very tight. Actually had to open both ends to push the styrofoam out.

Next time use gravity. Open the box, flip the box upside down and then pull the art box up as gravity pulls the styrofoam down.

I had that issue as well. I prefer the rock back and forth method, pulling from the right for a little bit and then pulling to the left.

Takes longer, but as I mention before, I just get nervous when I unpack a statue.
