Ambush we have both the soldier and the heavy weapons guy from team fortress 2 and love them both! But in my opinion gaming heads puts out some very nice detailed pieces and I'm big gamer and love their variety... I say go for it.

I missed out on first Kratos but sm definitely getting this plus this is 1/4 scale for the win and the light ups on this look insane this was one of my favorite games outside of uncharted series.... Can't wait!

GH is a great company. Good products and fantastic customer service. And I'm not only talking about when there are any problems but also when you have questions, suggestions etc
GH and First 4 Figures are our two favorite companies and I love dealing with them (which is in stark contrast with Sideshow...)


And SideShowJoe: it's Soldier and Heavy which color did you get?

This is not even a close contest to me. This Kratos is hands down the absolute best incarnation of this character in statue form I have ever seen.

PERIOD!!!!!!

It's bigger, more dynamic, cool light up features, affordable price, and chances are better QC. Not to mention, THIS IS A LINE OF GOD OF WAR collectibles. More are coming. Who would NOT want a statue of Zeus (for those fans of God of War that is)??

I just don't think its close.

Gaming Heads Kratos = 9
Sideshow Kratos (all static standing and stuff) = 6

End result = no contest! GH Kratos rules!!! I'll keep repeating this like a

Your forearm (wrist to elbow) is about the same length as the bicep (elbow to armpit). Looks about the same to me.

The wraps around the forearms could also give a SLIGHT impression of lengthening.

If it's someone you are not going to argue with about human anatomy, it is Khurram Alavi. A few awesome looking PCS pieces was done by this guy.

But they seem to only distribute the regular version. Exclusive seems to be only sold via the Gaming Heads website (along with the reg).

Edit: no regular via de Gaming Heads website?

Also, the regular via SS is $ 375 while the exclusive via GH will cost you $ 349.99

I'm thinking of getting the headcrab ex (was planning to get him a long time ago when he was available), what shop did you get him for only 80 euro's? Lowest I have seen is 125 euro's.

Just as an aside, if folks are comparing value when deciding where to order from, Gaming Heads has very reasonable shipping costs. At least for us internationals anyhow.

And yes, their customer service and interaction is very good indeed. Something that a lot of companies these days, both big and small, could certainly take a lesson from.
