This idea is easier said that done because each piece will be a different weight. A female statue will need a taller, wider and more sturdy base because of the added demensions of hair.

And XM usually gives 3 portaits. So that's even more than the standard.

I'm all about a stand. I LOVE the Black Widow bust/stand XM did. I just know it will cost more and be a logistical nightmare for them, so I don't see it happening.

Yes, absolutely. They did it with Black Widow, but then seemed to stop after her.

BIG NO. Increased costs and bigger boxes meaning increased shipping costs.

I'm buying a 1/4 statue not a bust.

No thank you.

Little floating heads everywhere?

What about the extra arms and weapons, can we get stands for those too?

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

Yeah kind of agree with this. You have to figure extra shipping too along with the already huge boxes that'll be ever bigger...

Has it even been confirmed if the Utimate Akuma from PCS is one box? I don't see how it'd be possible with so many switchouts and 2 bases.

Did you or risingstar suggest or bring that to XM's attention while you were in Singapore?

I echo your sentiments. It certainly couldn't hurt if they could maintain the cost as it is now.

However, while I don't personally see a need for it on less expensive Marvel characters like Spider Gwen or Black Panther, I think it is absolutely necessary for premium / expensive statues like PREDATOR!

Heads that are just as cool and distinct and important to the character is where this should be used. It seems XM is definitely doing that with Predator and feel it needs to be included for just about any statue at this price point.

By and large though...I echo your sentiments just as long as the price isn't increased.

Sadly of course the price would increase. The design, raw materials, manufacture, painting, etc has to be paid for. Maybe not overnight but there has been a natural slow price creep from 899 SGD to 1099 SGD and adding something like this would only speed it up.

Then there is the bigger boxes that would be needed increasing shipping costs.

Then maybe it should be left to the custom world. This is where customs are highly important IMO.
