I got the delivery today.Here some quick photos. I'm impressed .M Bison is taller than Zangief cause of the pose. The box it comes in is really wide. It could be wider than the Zangief shipper box. . The statue is huge and has a nice presence. I think the paint app has improved down the ultra line..There 3 alternate portraits that have the light up option..

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

Yup mine just shipped. $58 to ship. Seems like shipping is just going up across the board.

The light up feature on this piece is amazing. I wish the hands had it as well. I had some QC issues though. There were paint scratches on the armor, the wing on his hat was broken (open mouth portrait), and the resin hand had a break. Did you have any issues with fitment? My serious portrait does not go all the way down in the key hole. Also, I had a difficult time putting the leg into the base. I will contact Sideshow.

Shipping was $53 for me. Prices did go up. Its a huge statue.The shipper might be wider than Zangief. I hope you like the statue when you receive it.

I look at my statue. I think the scratches on the armor are for weathering effect . Its on the silver parts of his shoulder pad and on his forearms. You might call for a replacement on the open mouth portrait. There was a small break of dark purple resin maybe a half inch long for me also . I cant find where it broke from. Its really minor in my case. I'm not sure about yours. So far I look at my 3 portraits and no defects and they fit ok. I agree the placement of the legs to the base is Tricky. The statue legs are heavy and its a huge peg . You don't want to scratch the resin base. Its a very nice M.Bison statue!

Got him today, overall great. Love the heads, the hands, and all BUT the weathering on the silver bits of his armor is pretty piss poor. Honestly it would have been better without it, a blemish on an otherwise fantastic sculpt and decent paint job :|

7.5/10
