while i'm sad we'll likely never see a Gen from PCS at least I got Oro. And even if a thousand companies had the license I don't see anybody ever making either of them, so for that i'll always be grateful to PCS and Jerry.

We only got obscure characters due to the combination of a small minority of vocal fans clamoring for them, and PCS riding out a bubble. Those days are long over.

I honestly don't care what the reason is, I got my favorite character and I know for the rest of human existence he's unlikely to ever get made again. you guys can enjoy your 15,000 + New Ryu, Akuma and Chun Li's and i'll enjoy my 1 Oro

I really don't get the pessimism some people have for this licens. SF isn't as niche as some people think it is it's been around for decades and is the granddaddy of fighting games.

Hey, I'm not knocking on obscure stuff, just pointing the realities of the current market. I'm glad Oro exists. Really tempted to pick him up while he's still available. And I wish the rest of the B and C listers from SFIII and Alpha got their chance in 1/4, but that ain't happening at these prices, not even from PCS.

I still believe there's potential in SF. But it's no Marvel, DC, or some niche cult classic that's never had a statue made before. P1 finally showing the goods excites me, but it's oh so very predictable. Some hot females in DLC costumes would be a good start after their Chun Li.

To be fair, due to better marketing P1 should have an easier time moving these than PCS, so I'm hopeful to see more beyond the obvious A listers.

PCS have done some great statues, I think people are letting their hate towards the company(and Jerry) show some bias. I think they just got a bit greedy with the variants and total ES which is why their aftermarket's in the toilet along with being more niche anyways.

I'm not really blown away by P1's efforts so far, the poses and details are great but I'm not a huge fan of the portraits especially for the money they'll be asking. Akuma might be tempting with a classic portrait but I already have the 1/3 Akumas which are top notch to me.
