Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

So because a diamond is not heavy it feels cheap? And give me an example of why isn't as durable. And dont give me that "heat" bs. Statues aren't meant to be exposed to direct sunlight. I wonder, if a polystone and a vinyl piece falls to the ground, which one would break the easiest? Don't get me wrong, i love the weight and feel of polystone, but i think vinyl is great when it comes to durability, detail and cost. Is just that you ain't giving me solid facts. Give me examples.

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

That is a straw man fallacy. I never said cheap feeling had anything to do with weight alone and comparing to a diamond means nothing(although a heavier diamond usually means more expensive so it's a doubly poor example). Weight can be a factor, but I just don't like the feel of plastic pieces either. Carbon fiber or something that is actually more desirable BECASUE of it's lightweight would have at least been a decent comparison.

I'd much rather have a fiberglass piece like CC blue vs. a plastic one if it were to fall, less likely to break and easier to repair if it does. As for heat, you calling the heat issue BS just illustrates how little you know about the material differences. I suggest doing your own research. It just isn't a great material for high end large pieces like this. Even polystone can have issues in hot/humid climates or even just around HVAC vents, even out of sunlight, where fiberglass would not.

Perhaps a mis-type? Polystone is not durable, I could break dinosaur teeth and spines with a folded piece of paper.
I have done such damage with similar force to my favorite Allosaurus vs Camarasaurus statue.

I have to smash this(attached) in coming weeks, in order to recieve my replacement. It won't be thar difficult since it chips every time the tail is attached (very strong magnet).

A spine tip or small tooth isn't going to be unbreakable in any of these materials, and why would you try to break a statue with a folded piece of paper? Is that some strength test I don't know about? Folded paper can actually be fairly strong, so I don't know what you are saying.

Hey, if you like playing that with your statues, more power to you.

Well I have a polystone statue to break in the coming weeks, if you can devise a test for its durability, I may try it.
