A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

I am happy with my original but may get it repainted some day.

Almost the same pose as the old one. They better make the base more solid this time, mine was leaning a month after I received it.

I really don't know how I feel about ARH rereleasing these statues and making the old ones pretty much obsolete... I know if they made a new Minotaur that crapped on the one I bought last year for $400 I would be pretty salty. It's not like the last Cleo or Valk came out ten years ago and it's not like ARH doesn't have a million and one other sculpture options.

ARH should remake them all. They can all be improved and should be.

I guess, but how many frigging Iron Man, Wolverine, and Batman are there? They just keep remaking them over and over.

I don't think the new ones make the old ones obsolete at all. They are just different. I think Ehren's Medusa is fantastic, and I like the rattle snake version of the first one, but for me the first Green Medusa is the best.

I would buy the new Valkyrie if I didn't already have Valkyrie in a boat. I love my boat version and I think the topless without boat was cool too. The new one is just different look, not better not worse.

The new Cleopatra has a busier and more detailed base which a person may or may not prefer, same as the head dress. This one does appear to be a step up from the old one and would probably be widely viewed as such but I don't like it more enough to buy it. Unless the Liz face is just too good to pass, which I doubt it will be at least for me.

I like all of the Leos and Achilles. I prefer the less bloody but that is just paint app. Pose wise again they are just different. I don't necessarily think of one better than the other.

Which Medusa do you own?

Man, I think I might be the only one here who likes the original Cleo. The new one looks promising but I don't think it completely blows the first out of the water. The original has a fantastic body sculpt and some really nice details.

Though my original does have the ebony skintone which I think works better than than the lighter skintone version.

I think the first Cleo is awesome for what it is, but ARH is making better stuff now. The old Cleo just looks dated. Assuming it gets a decent paint app it will blow the old one out of the water.
