Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

Definitely personal taste. I don't think I like many crouching/hunched over poses because I like to see as much of the character and it's outfit as I can. One of my big dislikes are museum poses where the character's head is looking downwards so you can't get a good view of the face if it is not placed at eye level. Colossus PF is one of them.

Anyways, not saying XM HB is not a good statue, on the contrary, it is incredible and I am sure it will be an eye catcher in a collection.

Same with Thanos, the sheer bulk and size of it will be an eye catcher, but it better be if someone is willing to pay 3K or more for it

I'm not getting either, but love both. That being said, if you can foot the bill, getting both would be amazing to display together.

Hard to compare the two as it really comes down to character preference but I do think you get more for your money with Hulkbuster.

That's of course assuming you're crazy enough to spend 3 grand on either.

After getting a few Hulk statues and the new Bane PF, I really hope they revisit Thanos in a more dynamic way. The presence of Bane is just awesome.

I'm glad we got some good discussion on this. I didn't want to make this XM vs Sideshow thing but I will add that Thanos on a throne is a great piece but they missed boat on Ex imo. A standing more imposing Thanos with say switch out head, seperate throne would have been Ex worthy. You really only have one way to display him it's on angle with his face looking at whoever.

SS should have include both heads for EX and collectors and as an EX include Death for $300 - more

I bought some powdered water, but I don't know what to add to it.

Hell, even a switch out hand holding a light up cosmic cube would've worked. IMO, $1200 was way too high a price tag for what SSC is offering.
