Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

It's clearly spawning from the base and looping around her.
Too bad, would be an original idea

Have the base be Dark Phoenix be crushing a planet/sun with fire talons while the rest of the statue is just the rest of her looking badass. IMO for this piece to be great, I don't think you need a huge fire bird, I think you just need to show her power. I mean, even the bird looks tiny and non-imposing in the previewed image.

For Jean collectors, to have her green, kinder form have the huge bird while next to it, the Dark Phoenix has a much smaller bird would be silly.

All I know --for certain -- this piece needs a portrait with John Byrne
No..it doesn't. Trust me on this. Completely different in fact.

Secondly, you don't have to show her power by literally having her talons hold a planet (which would cost about $10,000 to do). How about...having her portraits do all the expression and talking? This needs a demonic, wild expressive portrait...IMO.

the only way I'd be happy is if they actually encased dark phoenix INSIDE a clear resin flame bird. The effect outside of her to me looks likes she's riding a wave

I think there was a custom DP done similar to what you want G...and it wasn't that impressive IMO.

Really? I love to see it. I trust you opinion though if you say it wasn't impressive.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Wasn't there a heroclix version of DP engulfed by the flame bird? Might be impossible to do in 1:4.

I saw that one. but it's tiny. It might be difficult to do in 1:4 scale. Meh.

I would hardly call a flame base that has a fire bird up around the character's head a :complete difference" than what we have. AND I'm curious to know what material they will make said bird out of.

It goes without saying that you need to get the possessed nature of Dark Phoenix to be shown through the portrait, but a "wild expressively portrait" could be very out of character if they show her screaming or being manic.

She's always been a fierce, but not over the top in her facial expression. She just slaughtered people and had a wicked big smile while doing it.
