Do I think they could do a lot of things better? Definitely. But lately, the press ARH has been getting here is downright unfair and one sided.
So threads like this are good, sure... but let's not forget for every ARH horror story there are 20 ARH positive experiences. Great odds? No, but good enough for me to keep gambling on them considering how much I like their statues.
I don't like complaining or getting Nasty. I just was told that I was going to get my Statue several times. It becomes disappointing waiting. If ARH is experiencing some difficulties I could wait a little longer. ARH is a small company things happen. They need to improve communications or collectors will get upset.
I know ARH will get back on their feet soon. I had the pleasure of meeting Arahom before at NYCC. He was friendly and a respectable person. ARH makes some great looking Statues.
I admire Arahom. I watch most of his old and new Youtube videos and I saw how much work and passion is needed to make a statue. He's not only the owner but a talented Artist. He works hard as the owner.I think he got distracted with his Comics.I could understand he's An Artist trying to make money. I want ARH to succeed. Bottom line they make great statues.
ARH has made quite a few Youtube videos during the years. He opens the doors of his Studio to let Collector appreciate the process he goes through to make a statue. He has some awesome looking pieces coming out. I definitely don't want to see ARH fail. They have a small niche in the statue industry with a small ES. They make unique pieces of Art that other companies wouldn't take a chance to make.
I look at the History of ARH and their prior ARH statue.They make some Beautiful, High Quality statues at fair prices. In person ARH makes some of the best statues in the industry. ARH's Conan Diorama, Thor, Battle Leonidas, Cleopatra and Ares all look amazing to name a few.
The energy Ehren and Aroham put into the Frazetta line is crazy. I'm eager to own this piece of Art. I don't think they will be a better sculpt of Frazeta's Artwork that will be made to this scale.
Will I buy from ARH again? Yes, but I'm going to wait for my paid statues to ship first.
I'm looking at the new Valkyrie and its very tempting.I'm going to wait for the new version of Thor to decide if I want to collect the line.
I hope ARH new statues sell. I want them to make More statues in the future.
