I also noticed the PVC version has a much smaller scaled base.

Decided to PO the PVC version. If they get the face right, I'll be happy.

Sorry but not a big fan of PVC. Looks ok but will pass.

I agree with you. Having 'A Touch of Ice' and considering it the best statue I've ever seen, I don't have a problem either.

The resin Wei Ho statues are really nice, but I honestly don't think the fact they are resin makes them inherently better than they would be from PVC.

The only thing I demand from the material is that it's stable & doesn't self-destruct. As a result hot cast bronze seems like a really good idea, but possibly a little difficult to cast with the same level of detail.

Regards,

Richard.

All my statues are resin except one, Yamato Fantasy Gallery Black Tinkerbell. I think it looks really good. Just cause PVC is cheaper, doesn't mean it does look as good.

PVC always has that shiny look to it. Plus I've had a few bad experiences with Koto's PVC statues with the paint becoming sticky. Given it only happen to a few of them but it still turned me off to PVC statues.

Of my [admittedly limited] range of statues, the 4 PVC ones are the ones that are least shiny. These are TOI, 1/6 Ritual, Golden Lover & Sacrifice. The skin on the resin statues (Hera/Aphrodite/Selene) has a higher level of glossiness.

Maybe it's all down to the paint shop the manufacturer uses & each manufacturer's products should be considered on their own merits as opposed to comparing with a different manufacturer's. I can't really draw wide conclusions based on my experience though, only having Yamato statues.

Regards,

Richard.

I agree, my Yamato PVC statue is does not have glare. It's up to the paint job. Maybe only Yamato makes very good PVC statues.

The PVC version of WW from Yamato has that shiny look to it, especially when you compare it to there polystone version. based on pictures anyways..
