Very cool.
I can't decide if I like the face or not.
I kind of like the masculine appeal of it, but don't.
From the side she looks like Elrond. From the font she isn't quite as masculine.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

I was going to get into this line, despite the 1/6th scaling. However, I feel that this piece really let's the line down, and trust me, I was looking forward to this character coming out. My gripes are the face and hair mainly. The face looks to androgynous with a tendency towards the masculine side. I realise "she's" a High Elf, and so doesn't need to correspond to human beauty ideals, but the execution leaves me feeling cold.

She's not far off the character cut scene she's based on, but if the original digital character was borderline androgynous, then this sculpt tips the scale for me. The hair is just meh......this could / should have been done with more detail. Right now it looks like a toy-like lump that you'd find on a cheap action figure.

Overall, for me, it's a pass.

Way to manly for my liking, I agree with both of you.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

Couldn't agree more. I've tried to convince myself numerous times since her announcement, but it just isn't clicking.

Unfortunately, I consider the three from the cinematic trailer a package deal. All or none for me and as it stands, I'm leaning towards none.. Their Skyrim line is going pretty strong though, so I find some comfort in being able to get my ES fix elsewhere.

I really like her and have her on order with the Breton, cool EX for this one too but i am a sucker for a light up feature! I don't think her face is that off compared to the trailer, it's a tiny bit unfeminie but it could look a whole lot different with factory paints.

Guessing and hoping the Nord will be next.

Be interesting to see if they do anymore after those 3.

Wondering what will be next in the Skyrim line too.

Despite the bad looking head I had to get this.

And surprise, it actually looks much better in real. Headsculpt looks more feminine with the good lighting too.
