Positives
1. The boxes don't take up as much space.
2. The weight makes the statues easier for rearranging.
3. The amount of statues you can display together in a smaller space.
4. Easier on the wallet.
5. Larger characters are easier to keep proportional.
6. I like displaying my statues with my comics and sometimes I feel the 1/4 statues overshadow the books.

Negatives
?
Don't forget the bigger selection of character choices. Between Bowen, Kotobukiya, and Tweeter, you can have a ton of different characters that sideshow won't touch in 1/4 scale since they are only interested in rehashing the same characters over and over again.

What's the best way to get in contact with Tweeterhead? I used their website message option but it's been over a week and no contact from them yet... I wasn't sure if Debbie's email was still working since she left...

Would like to get a replacement body given mine has a fairly bad gap between the head and the body..

Saw this today at Forbidden Planet's London store. Apparently I've severely misunderstood what 1/6 scale actually looks like because this thing is huge. Tweeterhead's prices make much more sense now. It was a really impressive piece.

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

Saw this in a local comic book store. It looked real impressive. The color really pops.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

well my 3rd Tweeterhead arrived today. I was not going to get Martian Manhunter but I was following one being sold on Ebay and I was able to get one for a fantastic deal. I was totally blown away by this piece. This statue is incredible. I was surprised at how large the box was and how heavy the base is. If you do have the opportunity to add this to your collection I would recommend it.

Congrats and agreed. It’s the second best in the line so far in my opinion.
