This is what I read...

A platinum cured silicone casting, mask, or sculpture will exhibit a very long life span. Pieces made using a platinum cured silicone can last upwards of 45 years....

I'll just make sure I sell it on year 40 just to be safe

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

I have a laundry list of reasons for passing on this...

But I thank JND for raising the bar with the competition

That's probably the only way to keep the quality control at a high level. And with a limited run of 700, it's probably more manageable to do this as opposed to this being a mass produced product in the thousands.

With JND charging collectors a hefty premium for the statue and their company being relatively new, they can't afford to screw this release up.

If they can't deliver on the promised realism of the prototype, it would be difficult for collectors to trust them on future products.

But I appreciate their transparency throughout this whole process, it's really refreshing to get a behind the scenes look.

I hope they can deliver in the final product. If they do, my wallet will unfortunately fall down another rabbit hole.

I wonder how JND will pack the figure to keep the hair styling in place. For a statue like Wonder Woman, this is really important to the overall look.

There is nothing more I hate than having to futz with a figure out of the box.

On lil'red they used a miniature hairnet to keep the styling of the hair in place.

Sold out at Secret Compass now. I haven't had this much anticipation for a statue in a while. Looking forward to work-in-progress in production previews, like they did with their Arthur Fleck statue.

I'm not particularly affected by anything that you do. Carry on.

I've seen bad WOM on Secret Compass from more than one customer in the past, otherwise I might have broken down and ordered it from them. Been having too much bad luck with all kinds of shipped products lately to want to court any more potential trouble after being warned.
By contrast, I don't think I've ever heard a bad word about Todd and Spec Fiction.

I was cleaning up the desktop the other day and stumbled on a couple jpgs of this - it threw me for a nano second when I realized it wasn't an actual photo of Gadot in costume.

The only thing that could possibly make me think less of this piece, should it come out anywhere close to the prototype, is if I seriously dislike the film.

OTOH, if I end up enjoying it without many reservations, missing out on this is going to sting even more.

I can't stand Suicide Squad and I've not been able to endure more than 10 minutes of Birds Of Prey, yet I love my Prime1 1/3 Harley Quinn.
