Well not a slave to accuracy but it hides her voluptuous figure and her facing down at the ground is kinda meh.

Right now this one does not have the visual impact of the other 2 and this will be all of $1K to get.

That's exactly what I thought. The lowered pose is what fills the figure with so much energy. It conveys just how much effort she's exerting to make this attack, her right leg forcefully dug into the ground as her extended left leg shows how far she has stretched out from her original position.

I gladly welcome creative liberty in a figure's sculpt, especially if it enhances the character being portrayed. However, for those who only accept sculpts that are 100% pose-accurate to their in-game portrayal, note that this pose seems to be more closely based on her depiction in KOF XV, shown below.

Not unlike my Sideshow Premium Dejah Thoris, the more I look at this Leona figure, the more absolutely impressed I am with whoever sculpted her. Great stuff!

I couldn't disagree more. It almost feels like we're looking at two completely different statues. Her voluptuous figure is on full display, and the sculptor raised her head from her KOF XV facing-down pose so that she's focused directly on her opponent. She looks awesome!

Looking at the sprite she is clearly facing forward, which then begs the question why didnt they sculpt it with her facing forward..
It would solve all the display issues as well as mix n match with Terry and Geese..

Hey all. If you notice in the teaser image, she's actually facing forward. The prototype on display was leaning forward (the engineering was not completed) hence it seems she's looking slightly down.

You mean she is supposed to be facing forward like the sprite and looks like in the render? great that'll help a lot.

The statue has a straight back leg which gives it a more powerful, committed look to the move and IMO looks better than the game.

The photos and videos CLEARLY show that she's facing forward, and I don't know why some continue to claim that she's not. The prototype's pose is simply sublime, so please have confidence in your sculptor's magnificent portrayal of this character, and always be cautious not to blindly submit to vocal minorities. If they aren't even paying attention to your preview images, why pay attention to their feedback?

Absolutely. 100%. The sculptor absolutely nailed her pose.

Or you know maybe actually DO TELL people when a prototype fits incorrectly and will be corrected when people notice something?

The actual company says the display was leaning and seems like she's looking down but those that saw she was looking down are the ones not paying attention? Yeah okay.

It really isn't a good luck when most of the in-hand products have had QC issues and almost all of the prototypes they show have issues too...
