It is nowhere near what was solicited. It looks like a fat man in a body suit. Armor definition is awful. There's a bump on the forehead. Dirty marker lines that accentuate the faint lines that's supposed to be the fault lines you would find on the suit.

Definitely not 1:4. His head is smaller that Sideshow's Deadpool and around Obi Wan Mythos' size.

I like the red paint and the light up effect. The arc reactor is plastic with the arc's imprinted details. The gold paint has brush strokes.

The push rods under the shoulder armor look crooked and I could go on..

If ever one would feel greatly underwhelmed after opening a statue, this is it. Man, oh man. What a waste of money. Prototype photos looked so promising, with crisp accents and clear detailing and this is definitely not it.

Goes to show why I should never give new companies a shot. It's not worth the gamble. Now I am really not even gonna consider XM's too.

I'm gonna ask for my money back.
pics please

Will get to it when I can find time. Am in the middle of a heavy project and I gotta finish up work before I head off on a much-needed vacation next weekend.

Looking at the statue I honestly do not feel inspired to take any pictures of it.

Anybody else here ordered this?

The one thing I'm ticked off is that they claim to be using the same factory used for Sideshow stuff. Obviously that was also misleading as that does not mean that it would have the same quality as Sideshow's. And most definitely sculpt-wise leaves much to be desired.

Anyone gotten around to some pix yet? I'm curious to see how bad these turned out. This might inform my decision on their Hulk.

Maybe it was the same factory SS used for Rogue?

Pics look good from the phone, but something tells me up close and personal is where you will see the disappointment.

At least that is what was stated on SSC forum.

Glad you are happy with it....at least from the pics you posted it looks good.
