Nice! Does look a tad off, especially in that second picture. I guess it depends on what angle you look at it from. Looking straight on makes it look fine.

Figured it would be light considering the fiberglass makeup.

There won't be, it hasn't got an ES, it's "Limited edition" which is a weird term for something that is presumably only limited only to the amount they can sell. "Open edition" might be a better description.

Try in a different browser. I've been having issues viewing images in Firefox lately (Just see a torn white paper image) But they work fine in Chrome weirdly...

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.

He looks good, but I still prefer the original 1:1 bust from a few years back.

Hey guys,

I just got my bust in. It's a nice piece and has awesome display presence.

Pros and cons:

Pros: Mixed media is really well done. I like the three different fabrics used to create the different layers of the cloak. Also, the thickness of the outer cloak allows you to shape it somewhat. I'm really happy with the silhouette that I created with it.

I think the portrait is really well done. The menacing expression is worlds better than the previous Sideshow bust.

Cons: Detail to the sculpt could be better. When I compare this portrait to my Vader life size bust(Anakin portrait), it's a bit anemic when you look at the skin pores and wrinkles.

Isn't it time that Sideshow caught up with the other companies and do glass or acrylic eyes already? These they are are okay, but they could be so much better.

Would I recommend this piece? Absolutely! It's a fantastic portrayal of Darth Maul and has massive display presence.
