Yeah, but we've already seen that with Bowen's. Koto has the arm out, but it's head on. Something a little different. I prefer Sosa's sculpt anyway.

Gotcha. Yeah, I wasn't really seeing the connection there.

And you get all of this from line art? A concept? I didn't know there was a sculpt shown of this yet.

...I thought somebody might bring that up. No, haven't seen a sculpt yet...I prefer Sosa's design to the current XM design. There you go.

Can't wait for Koto's version. And I'll save 800$ as well.

With all due respect, how is the much smaller scale Bowen Vision which was produced in 2005 in any way relevant to a discussion about a 1/4 scale Vision, which for all intents and purposes, will likely be superior in every single production way possible to the Bowen version? Who cares, really, other than yourself perhaps, if Bowen released an arm-stretched version over ten years ago.

However, now that it's part of the discussion, while the Bowen version paid wonderful homage to the classic Avengers cover, the industry has evolved to such a staggering degree that comparing virtually anything that's being produced now to what Bowen was producing in 2005 is like comparing Bluray to VHS. There is just no sensible comparison in this instance.

I think he is just saying it has been done before as far as the pose is concerned.

this remains my favourite sneak from the entire show. I am sure it will be even more amazing once painted. Too bad we didn't get a sneak for SW. I am sure she is in the works : )

True but it's still rather moot to all the people out there that never bought Bowen's version back then. I'm pretty sure all of them could careless that Bowen had a similar pose back in 2005...
