come on man!! that's offensive to me. you thinking I was so dumb not to differentiate between a statue and a render. I was just comparing how faithful to that render it is. it was a tough decision tho, to choose between CC's and P1. the pose and base was the key selling point for me. but hey, I have spent around 4K with your products for a reason, I love your work.

I disagree with assessments. There are clear accuracy issues with prime 1, not that CC did a perfect job but I bet it's hard to match that skin for painting. I'd go the decal route myself, I wouldn't think that'd be difficult with just taking the digi files and making decals from them but I imagine that's not a popular idea with people although didn't they mention they will/already did or might do that for the blue stripes? CC already made the eyes vastly better. I don't know where they are at for the solid white outlines that need to be more off white, but the blue stripe going down her body is clearly way more accurate by CC than Prime's somewhat lazy effort.


I forgot to finish editing that so there's alot of white background after copy/pasting/resizing. bah whatever!

Anyways, you can't really go wrong with either one. I get that the Prime 1 looks better to some but it's just not faithful to baby blue's appearance. As someone who is not going to buy a baby blue, though I sure as hell would love one, and someone who loves what both CC and Prime puts out, I'm just telling ya, CC gets the win here. But the factory carrying that win over to a final product is still in question, as far as I am concerned. For $999 it better. It really looks difficult to work with.

I have far less doubt about Prime 1's proto looking pretty much exactly like what the finished product will appear. Maybe they weren't lazy about baby blue, maybe they just wanted something easier to work with so the finished product will look like the proto. shrug

Too be honest I think both companies have been lazy regarding the paint scheme. Looking at your photo it clearly shows errors with both paint schemes. It seems to me that a bit of artistic licence has been used rather than following the original pattern.

What I cannot understand is why Prime's not using the digital files from ILM if they are available as they are licensors. Why redo something that is already made??. I mean all the dinosaurs not only this baby blue. There's so many things they are doing wrong with this license...

in their description from the website, it says they did use the same files. I believe them. the level of detail on the skin is amazingly crisp.

I love the way you make your point without been rude. very professional without imposing your opinion. we need more people like you on the forums. I completely understand your point too. I went with the P1 because the way is posed. it looks so dynamic. but the paint app is not as accurate as you said. P1's pose is more like this render.
