The engineering of the statue might have been done better, but it LOOKS amazing. I love the statue and it's absolutely beautiful.

One weird thing though: The statue is numbered ONE. They added "UM" to the end of the serial number in marker and the statues is number one. It must be 'one' in a replacement line that they created? I know that it takes the place of the one I sent back (which had parts of the base actually broken, so that one will likely get scrapped), so it's not as if it increases the SIZE of the overall line, but it's odd that it's numbered one.

I guess I'm wondering if there are multiple number ones now?
can we get a pic of the base ?

Replacements do not have a separate line of numbers. And the numbers are assigned at random. You may literally have #1. The only #1. Not sure what UM is about though. Ask SS, I'd be curious.

I would, but I don't really want to take him apart to see the bottom of it (especially considering what a pain he is to move around and disassemble).

For those that have the statue....on the post where the arrows go, does the top half/arrow holder that is coming out of the post stand up straight or does it lean slightly to the right? Mine leans to the right a bit and not sure if that is correct or not.

I think mine is a little bit off, too--but not enough to have any real effect on the placement of the arrows.

Well looks like the exclusive is officially "Sold Out" now. I guess there's no way for a wait-list to convert now? Not sure how this works but I heard that someone just recently got their Thanos on throne converted? So I'm a bit confused as to what some of Sideshows terms mean I guess. Sold out means waitlist is full or all pieces have been sold (which I think would make more sense)?

Thanos on Throne still shows as "waitlist full", so it's possible that anyone currently on the list could covert.

Green Arrow shows as "sold out", so the waitlist (if there was one) is no longer active.

Ah, thanks for clearing that up.

Regular shows as "almost sold out."

Just ordered one. I missed out on the EX but it still seems like a great statue even without the alternate head sculpt.
