I don't get it. CS Moore is excellent, the ARH is awesome. No need for another one and I can't imagine it will sell gangbusters. Why not do Silver Warrior, or if that is too large even the Brain or any other iconic painting with just one or two characters that hasn't been done yet? Even a 1/4 scale Dark Kingdom would be cool.
I kind of desagree. Sure there would have been plenty of other fine paintings, which I'm desperately waiting to be transformed into statues. But I never was happy with ARH's sculpt. The girl doesn't look like anything Frazetta ever had painted and also the face of the barbarian looks kind of off, while Kabuki's version of the barbarian is awesome! Do I have the space ? no....would I've liked another painting ? yes....but that Kabuki version is way better than ARH (ok..ok...the girl also doesn't bear any resemblance with the painting) . But I'm willing to make room! (oh and yes, CS Moore's is flawless...but too small)

I found some time to do a collage of my Frazetta / fantasy related statues. These are various scales so I have them displayed in different rooms.

Love your collection, we got the same taste...got most of your statues, kits and weapons in my collection, donít have Ken Kellys Deaths end in my collection, the price Ken was asking was just insanely overpriced in my book, though itís an awesome looking statue.

Gotta disagree with Kabukiís version looking better than ARHís version, Mooreís is the best IMO with ARH taking the #2 spot and Kabuki following a close 3rd. Like some things better on kabuki and some things better on ARH but overall I prefer the ARH version over the kabuki probably because itís in hand for me, and I still wasnít very happy with the prepaint on mines either.

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.

I asked Ken Kelly about this once and he told me that he originally planned to sell Deaths End as a more conventional mass produced piece but when he went to produce them there was so much in his words "robbery and crookery that he was going to be taken to the cleaners" so instead he personally makes and paints each one himself as ordered. He said he promised those that paid this price that he would never mass produce it or sell it for less and make them look foolish for paying that much and that he considers this a very private thing between him and his fans. I love it but it is too much for me as well. I have never seen one in person and I don't know how many of them have been produced, I felt like I was already being nosey asking about why the price was so high.
