They never said that, they hired several digital sculptors to make something that it's already made. And it's pretty obvious that their baby blue doesn't come from the movie digital files, you don't need to be an expert to see that.

Now you can say again that my opinion doesn't matter (that's making a point in a forum without being rude I guess).

Ohh so you know more than Prime 1 then? Are you an employee there? You have some ba*** to go against the companies word same story with Julien, contradicting his work. Ohh and with that pic, im more than happy to have pre-ordered P1's. The level of detail is way crisper.

Basically feels cheap and isn't as durable.

CC already made the eyes vastly better. I don't know where they are at for the solid white outlines that need to be more off white, but the blue stripe going down her body is clearly way more accurate by CC than Prime's somewhat lazy effort.


I forgot to finish editing that so there's alot of white background after copy/pasting/resizing. bah whatever!

Anyways, you can't really go wrong with either one. I get that the Prime 1 looks better to some but it's just not faithful to baby blue's appearance. As someone who is not going to buy a baby blue, though I sure as hell would love one, and someone who loves what both CC and Prime puts out, I'm just telling ya, CC gets the win here. But the factory carrying that win over to a final product is still in question, as far as I am concerned. For $999 it better. It really looks difficult to work with.

I have far less doubt about Prime 1's proto looking pretty much exactly like what the finished product will appear. Maybe they weren't lazy about baby blue, maybe they just wanted something easier to work with so the finished product will look like the proto. shrug
This screenshot is from the trailer, right? Just a heads up that they were tweaking things right up to release. Best to compare with screenshots from the Blu when itís available.

The "cheap" statement is not a con, that's just opinions. And the duration statement...:

No it isn't an opinion, go compare a vinyl/PVC piece and then a real statue. And yes it isn't as durable as polystone or fiberglass.
