Looks like the Barton bust with shoulders.

Definitely, doesn't look like a $3k piece. More like in the $1200-1300 range, especially when you consider it's a CP piece. I own their Predator 2 bust and even that felt cheap at $1200.

i think the mouth area could be better and IMO should be revisited. but i don't see any flaws with the armor. At first glance thought the black visor was a little too thick, but after side by side comparison i don't see any issues.

Barton looks 100% Weller, completely spot on. Mouth on this looks like ----.

And as you said it's waay overpriced.

Love the movie to death, but wouldn't call it a perfect movie.
Even only for that last shot of Jones falling, everytime i watch the movie with guests that makes people laugh.

It's also one of the very, very few movies i prefer to watch dubbed, because Robocop voice in Italian is simply outstanding. It's so ----ing good Weller himself (such a lovely and classy guy) acknowledged how impressive it was:

Even though he said: "sounds like me".. and no, he knows it sounded better.

Maybe they laughed because it was in italian (just speculating).

?

Makes people laugh because Jones arms when he falls appear to be twice as long as they should be.
I don't mind it at all because i'm used to it and always appreciate the charm of such things, but it effectively ruins the ending for some first time watchers.
In one of the bonus features even the guy who made the shot, great artist and very humble person, acknowledge this. Very, very interesting interview.

I saw this bust in person and would agree, it?s not a $3k bust. If they make the mouth silicone, maybe they can get away with it, but not in resin. It was still a huge piece and the armor looked pretty good. It should be under $2k imo when comparing it to what other companies are putting out.

But the one you saw already was silicone, right?

As big as it is with the shoulders I could see $2,200-$2,500 and I'd rather avoid silicone all together.

What's the point of silicone when the likeness is so off?
Translucent resin with a good likeness would be ideal.
