If you saw a heat wave, would you wave back?

She's pouting so I think it looks fine, maybe they initially were going to make the lower lip a bit bigger but changed their mind after the sculpt was done

I’d rather they used a less puffy cheeked alt face. A growl mouth would ve been more suitable. Or a cheeky smile for the alt face and a growl lip for the masked head?

Still a beauty tho

Maybe they'll release another "angry" version due to feedbacks and demand...Can't believe they'd make the same mistake again with a Wolverine's expression tho...maybe they thought people all forgot about that previous one lol!

I did this to help illustrate the weird lip sculpt that I am seeing.

Pretty much everything I wanted to say, but I try to restrain from giving my full thoughts on stuff like this. I try to focus on the positive aspects and roll past the other stuff. I kinda felt like I went a little too far with what I actually did post.

How long until this line has a base of $150 US? With the way things are going, I'd guess by the end of this year.

So true. I tend to be harsher on Koto (and Iron Studios) because they seemed like reasonable champions for collectors, but did an abrupt and harsh 180 into the dark side. Most of the others did steady steps into insanity, which I don't like and won't support... but I understand and kinda respect from a business aspect.

Agreed. And is the main reason I've all but stopped collecting them. I think I have one of the MLP ones on preorder and thats it. I loved the horror ones too, but it seems they have slowed down with those.
