Very nice paint up. A little surprised the customer wanted to go with the alternate head as it covers up much of Andy's incredible likeness (not too mention...he never wears the helmet with this particular armor set in the movie). This is one of my favorites in my collection and would probably be the last piece to go if i ever had to get rid of my collection for any reason. There is only one thing about it I didn't like.....and that was the elongated neck. I had my painter sand down the vertical section of the neck and add some bulk to the horizontal section...so it looked more natural and less like a giraffe.

What's a piece like this cost (pardon the ignorance) if a mere mortal like myself were to wish for one?

How many versions were made available? Painted, unpainted & signed by Andy? How many total were ever made?

Gladiator is one of my all-time favorite movies!

The piece I got has reached Saul already!

Can't wait to have it in my hands but I am willing to wait for perfection!

I understand only 80 were ever made?

My dilemma now is to whether to have him painted clean or stained with blood
