makes sense. it would be difficult to seam vinyl and poly. I actually don't mind vinyl. those jp horizon models are vinyl and they hold amazing detail. and seen p1 baby blue, it has so much rich detail. just wanted to know, that's all.

One cause it's not heavy so polystone diehards can't brag about how hefty their new collectible is and two because apparently vinyl will fall apart over time? Maybe if you live in the desert and the sun is directly on it.

Weight is not really a factor, it is more durability and that plastic feeling I am concerned about. Even polystone can deform in harsh conditions, but vinyl will be even more fragile.

A few thoughts:

vinyl? Well, okay I guess? I suppose? Does vinyl material in any way warrant a $900 price tag even in baby blue size? Even if it were some super vinyl plastic ancient secret recipe recently rediscovered in the highlands of somewhere in Europe, I don't see vinyl as an expensive material, just a useful material in certain situations. This is one of those times where it feels like customers could save hundreds of dollars but get charged the status quo pricing because it's status quo, it's expected, people will pay it, and it's an uncommon opportunity to make more money than you usually do. But it just seems and feels like that, I am by no means assuming it to be the truth.

At the end of the day, vinyl is plastic. It's just that when it comes to hearing the word vinyl, as American, you can't help but associate it to, well, vinyl in America and how vinyl is the cheapo standard for cheaper products. Although as I understand it, plastics of all types are heavily used in this hobby for one reason or another.

Is it me or does the CC blue seem far more accurate and faithful to the movie since they had access to the digi files? and Prime 1 doesn't, I guess? Because CC's blue looks way better as baby blue while Prime's looks like adult blue but shrunk down. To my eyes CC has a very easy win in appearance but Prime has a very easy win in paint app, even if it's not accurate and it may not be I'd have to look at the scenes again. It's just a really nice looking dinosaur. But at the end of the day I'm an accuracy guy.

I am quite shocked at first when I saw the $899 price tag and was getting ready to eat a hat or a crow or something but then I saw vinyl and new views of Prime blue and I feel comfortable in declaring I need not eat away. Prime clearly had to make sacrifices in order to get the green light to sell their blue. CC is very protective of the licenses they pay for, there is no way they would just agree to a straight up competition out of the kindness of their heart, as how I understand it, the reason Prime 1 has access to JP is because CC allowed it. Now that may be wrong but other people were saying it and I am repeating it.

If somehow someway Prime 1 is totally apart from CC because they are overseas then hey, I got nothing on why they would go with vinyl and a 899 price. So far they have not held back on product or pricing. Maybe they made sacrifices to compete against CC. But my money is on forced sacrifices because CC is selling Prime 1's baby through their website. I don't think anyone would take that gut + nut punch willingly in real competition.
