They’ve just put up for preorder Venger with Nightmare & Shadow Demon Deluxe BDS Art Scale 1/10.

It’s a nice looking piece. But because I’m not interested in this particular line, my first thought upon seeing this was wondering if they could also do a Valkyrie with Pegasus from Endgame.

I just received the first three, and I'm really impressed. These are my first Iron Studios pieces, and they are really well done. Can't wait for the rest!

That does look really nice. I wonder if it will be up for pre-order on sideshowtoy.com.

Don't buy direct

Have a few of these statues and although small they look great...and since they take up less space leaves more for statues i really want done in larger scale.

That would be AWESOME! Of all the D&D dragons that companies have done, I would think they would have done this one being the most known. I would jump on this as well. Sure glad they added Venger on nightmare with shadowdemon as well. Have that one pre-ordered as well. Unfortunately I did the pre-order direct though. Will see how that goes.

Problems with mine.

Just got my full set in today from Sideshow. Got to be honest, this is my first time ordering from Sideshow and buying items from Iron Studios and I am a bit underwhelmed by both companies. Grand total for this set was $812.70 (including Tax and Shipping to CA). Now I understand that the price includes 7 statues but the quality of the pieces just seems to be all over the place and I am not sure if it is worth the money. Some look pretty good, others have parts that look so fragile that it seems they could break if hit by a light breeze.
My set came with a BROKEN UNI.
My Hank has a wierd defect on the shackled skeleton on the base; the skeleton's right arm is sticking straight up instead of outstretched.
My Diana's staff has a major bend in it; due in part to it being made of cheap plastic and in part to poor packaging (seems like the styrofoam caused the bend.
My Presto's right hand looks too tight to fit his hat into it, although the hand may be made of plastic and might be able to stretch but I am not sure because there are no instructions or clues as to how to attach the damn hat.
The fingers on my Sheila look so delicate that I am afraid to breath on them.
Overall the statues feel like they are made of some combination of resin and plastic, not sure how to describe it but they just feel a bit off. Now on the plus side, the sculpts are pretty good for the small size. They look, for the most part, like the prototypes and enough like the cartoons that I want to keep them. But I will say that for the total price, I was expecting a bit more consistent quality. And as for Sideshow's packaging, I would say it is pretty poor. They stuff the art box into some random sized box, put it right up against the sides and just shove some butcher paper around one of the sides and top to keep it from moving around. No bubble wrap, no foam corners, no space around the art box to be sure it does not take a direct hit if droped, just the bare minimum. Either way, I have contacted sideshow with my issues, lets see how their customer service responds.

That's too bad about Uni. You should be able to get a replacement easy enough though.
Some of your complaints, even though legit, I feel won't bother you over time and might even be correctable. My interest in this is just as a spectator because of future dios I want to purchase, so I don't have any of these pieces, but looking at the pictures it looks like the skeleton arm is adjustable. Did you try moving the chain to reposition the arm?
The fragile looking hands is something I'm familiar with and was my only real complaint with the 1/10 Wonder Woman but I've pretty much forgotten about it until reading this post. I think once you have everything together after a few weeks you won't even notice them in this dio.
Warming up the staff should help straighten it out but if SS is willing to send you a replacement then take it.
Good luck. Hope everything works out for you.
