"there's a big difference between 1/3 and 1/2. The former is manageable for more people while still being very large. And there is nowhere else to go for this kind of awesomeness, only Prime 1. It would be nice if they made this in both scales to please everybody."

"we will but later "

The HCG just looks a bit too stiff in comparison. Still like it, but love the Prime 1 version.
If Prime 1 stood straight, it'd probably hit the 96cm mark. Double that is 192cm so over scaled. HCG would be around 180cm so a little underscaled. Endos are around 183-185cm. Seems like only the life size endos are scaled correctly.

Agree one has a very static pose, can only be photographed in certain angles and the other has a dynamic pose and movable head and arms which makes for a lot of different poses for shots.

Hope they base it on T2. Would love to see some guns included with an Endo again.
They don't have the T2 licence. Honestly if 1/3 is tackled, I would rather a company like Queen Studios give it a go. Prime 1 is pretty inconsistent these days.

Absolute must for T2 endo to have at least an articulated head and poseable arms. But I'm with Shoo, get the feeling there won't be an endo for a while.

I don't see why a statue needs articulated head and arms. Its not a figure.

Why not? There not mutually exclusive events in the statue collectible world. It's been done in the past and present. When I hear people say it's a statue not a figure, yes that is correct in the literal sense, but to me it is just a lazy way to defend a collectible. Do statues have lights? Do statues have poseable eyes? Do statues have motors? Do statues have swappable arms and parts? Some do and some don't. It may not be a must for all collectors but tell me which collector wouldn't mind having some of these options for certain types of statues such as an endo?

Statues, like T-rex, Superman, Alita, the Nun (wouldn't that be creepy) wouldn't need them as much, their poses are distinct enough. Others have swappable heads and arms which also negates this need e.g transformers, aliens, predator, and again the Nun.

But T2 endo is a different story. I'm not talking about finger articulation and forearms, I'm talking about the arm having the feature to be poseable. It's holding a gun so, personally for me, I would want that to have the ability (like hcg bust or sideshow version 2) to be able to move the arms so the rifles facing down, straight or up. Articulated head not going to explain why that's needed, it's almost a sin not to have this feature on endos, almost comparable to an endo not having light up eyes. A movable endo head is absolutely menacing.

After a string of crappy endos released over the past decade it's been a major relief to get a good one from Prime 1. So I for one hope the next release can improve on the past. The endo needs more love from these companies and fans want good endos. Imagine it got the same treatment as the Ledger jokers, our expectations would even be greater than what I've pointed out. Probably collectors would be demanding the red eye light up feature to be able to contract and expand, something that no company has ever attempted, but it could be done, and I ain't going to bet fans wouldn't want such a killer feature.
