If they were to completely make the figure out of vinyl, it would be seconds before I cancelled my preorder.

If it were a mix and match of materials, but overall the figure still had a bit of weight to it, I'll be okay with it.

My concern with this piece, over other floating etc pieces, is that the centre of gravity / weight distribution is completely different with this Rogue piece, given that the attachment point is the arm rather then a point more or less directly below the figure.

It’s not the same. It’s simple physics... try holding up a solid brick from the bottom(Bowen Rogue) and then from the side (SS Rogue).

If I were Sideshow I’d just add a second point of contact from the bottom just to be safe.

Bowen also did one with carnage on the wall and it bend over time.

Just found out about this GL (by salt and pepper studios) a few weeks ago, pose is quite similar to rogues and seems its been around for awhile. Review: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaiYBKIux5M

If SS uses strong quality material i'm sure they could pull it off too.

For me this rogue has one of the more interesting portraits in that i dislike it in a majority of the pics SS has up on there site, and while i liked most of the sdcc videos and pics of it, its behind glass, so i found it a bit difficult to gauge the detail, but i really like it here. If in hand it looks like this i'll probably buy it.

I've loved this piece from day 1 (minus the fabric and EX head), but it simply makes me too nervous to place an order at this point in time.

Great find and comparison!

It seems like Rogue is leaning forward a bit more than the more upright Hal, which could lead to more instability. But like you said, with strong/quality material, it could work.

Here's hoping SSC can pull this off and deliver a structurally sound product to the fans.

The dimmer pics helps a lot by making the face look not as bad as it is. It's actually ok. But not great. I just don't see a maquette in this. It's a pf with the exact same amount of things on the base as so many other pf's. The es is dece nt for this character though. I was expecting 2-3 times more for the es for the ex. Looks like es is shrinking a bit now with people buying less. Same goes for p1.
