Alright all here are the pictures: https://drive.google.com/folderview?...zFiYnh4ZGY4X2c

Sorry the pics aren't the greatest taken with an s7 in lower light.

Alright, let's start with the elephant in the room, the face. It is a good looking face at arms length it looks very nice. Close up the nose is to large and if you were hoping for a scarjo match it's not quite there. My phone does overexagurat the nose by what feels like 20%. I actually feel like the face was a mishmash of anime and movie references. I would give it a 6/10.

The base is where I think this thing shines literally . I think this base is the real work of art from the destroyed geisha to the light up feature it just flows well. 8/10

The body sculpt is very elegant, and I can't find much wrong with it, the coolest part is how the light from the base shines through the feet. 8/10

Last thing really is the paint I think they were trying to get this really nailed down and detailed, but mine has some small imperfections. Not enough to have me worried, and I am capable of fixing them if they get worse. For this 6/10

As far as cost I would preferred it to cost 300, however with the electronics 370 ish would have been in the realm 2-3 years ago.

Overall 6.8 is my non biased opinion, 7.5 is my biased one lol.

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

Thanks for posting pictures and the review
As slightly off as the face is, I like it. The light-up base works well. The Major outfit looks so very original and movie accurate. The eye's too look robotic spot-on. The statue also gives me an excuse to own something from Weta


/all i need now is something from Prime1

Haha yeah I had the same thought, I missed out on all the cool district 9 stuff and this was a great first WETA acquisition for me.

Also on a side note look at her nose lol, it's large and beautiful:
