i see, in the photos the hcg does have more of an authentic look.

Yeah, my HCG P2 mask is one of the last pieces I'd ever get rid of, love it. This one was certainly a missed opportunity to offer a really nice hero version. I guess that is reflected in the sales given how long it has been available for. Nice base though.

A video review stated that the Sideshow version feels like it is metal. Is it metal or polystone? I know that the HCG is fiberglass but cannot find anything to strayer what the Sideshow mack is made of. That same review said that the base is polystone whereas the mask itself is metal.

SS mask is not metal, it is hollow polystone or plastic. The base is polystone.

Doesn't state, they are usually fiberglass and don't feel at all like metal, it is possible that particular reviewer may have been drunk Well my Scar bio is cold to the touch as I painted it with Alclad chrome. The recent P1 was a step down in quality unfortunately. The base was incredibly light, the materials on the mask paper thin to the point that you can bend it and many of them didn't connect properly to the stands (mine didn't attach at all) can't speak for this P2 but fortunately it doesn't seem to have the production troubles that the P1 did.

Thanks! I figured as much but wasn't sure after I watched that review.
