The translucent resin Weta appear to have used works really well, both on skin and outfit. The finish looks better than all my painted statues.
Agreed! The translucency was part of the appeal for sure. They do a good job of leaving enough of it on the skin while building up the paint for different tones so it has a nice, life-like quality to it. I find her likeness to have a subtlety to it that can be captured poorly on camera. Some of the promo shots almost looked bug eyed or frightened, whereas in real life it looks determined.

I did! They look pretty good together, although the bases are very different. Here's a shot from my Dining room table (their temporary home while I clear space!) so you can see what they look like.

I'd like to get these but just don't care for her face.
The 1l6 figure from threezero has a much better likeness IMHO .

got mine, here is a review i made

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWx5gvrYwHM


after looking at it more last night, the statue looks best from up high, I give likeness a 6.5/10 however the paint app and detail all around the statue is a 9.5/10 for a 1/4 statue. The skin tone on the face is incredible, the base is a work of art with the light up and killed geisha. I overall really like the statue and just ordered the geisha to go with her.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

I'd place the likeness at 8.5/10 as while it is not spot on, it does a lot right.

Who makes the Black Widow statue that appears during the video?

Thought that was a Hot Toys product at first. I don't know much about threezero, but it appears to be a very good effort, although the face reminds me of another face on TV. When it comes to me, i will post
