Nothing wrong with that. Plenty of people buy hobby stuff used. You'll save a ton of cash on barely used instruments, for example.

Smart choice, I may do the same for Cyclops. Inflated edition sizes and mass production make this a buyer’s market. Who knows, in 2 years there may be another couple versions of both on the market. Hopefully, with a light up function.

I'd be surprised if SS does another version within 2 years, but agree waiting on an ES is probably the way to go.

Tho i don't care about the light up function, its just something extra to break or stop working, making it less valuable. Tho it maybe less valuable anyway, won't be surprised if they still have this cyclops by next year's spooktacular.

There are more statue companies than SSc tho, and more scales and formats than 1/4 scale PFs. Movie versions will come out soon since the Mouse House got back the X-franchise and FF4. Additionally, when companies wear out 1/4 scale they will just move to 1/3 or 1/2 scale X-men.

Oh, the Cyclops will probably be available next Spooktacular.

She was fired by Sideshow. She doesn't talk about it so we really don't know why. She has her own Facebook page and talks about other companies as well. For example her favorite statue is XM's Doctor Strange.

Edit: She just launched a YouTube channel today.

Did not realise FF4 properly after all the X-Men in the MCU-News, so we are coming closer to some of the more interesting movies of some cool crossover comic stories.

I'm glad she started up her own thing.

It's weird. Susan was a reason I'd watch the livestreams. It wasn't because "Oh look, a girl!!!!!" She came off as genuine. Doing these new YouTube vids confirms that she really does love this hobby. They haven't found that voice yet in videos since, and it's going to be a long time before Sideshow finds someone that could fill her shoes.

Spook just isn't going to be the same this year. A company like SSC is better served having a face of the company rather than a rotating cast of characters.

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.

I really liked the Ghost Rider unboxing.
The love and knowledge of the character ... and excitement for the statue really came though.
You could tell the guy was a big fan.
