We pay $100's of dollars for these items, I don't want something cheap just because we rushed him.

The slow pace at which our statues are released are usually to do with my being a terribly picky art director, not other projects.

Granted, we have QC issues like every other company, but the pieces in general are, IMHO, better than most other companies statues.

It takes a lot of time to get things the way i want them. Some other companies are just looking to make as much money as quickly as possible.

Really think about...I know the market for SF, MK, etc is pretty big. I could throw out four times the number of statues I do every year and make four times as much money. But I dont. Why would I turn down all that money ?

Integrity of the art is the only plausible reason...and that takes time.

^I wish you had the Dead or Alive or Ninja Gaiden license. I need a proper Ryu Hayabusa statue and the reviews for the 4first or whatever that company is called version of him are all bad... You guys would nail it.

Shoot, I don't even like Judge Dredd and after seeing your statue of him I wanted one!

I love your work and love both street fighter and
Mortal kombat but can't afford to have them so I just stick to marvel.. I get a sense of a high quality from your product and never owned one.. The other thin is you take feedback from your consumers.. I think other people would agree with me.. And no disrespect to sideshow because I have some great pieces from them

That's why I consider that PCS is the BEST company in the market!!! You really care about the overall quality of your products and the fact that you came here and answer questions all the time proves how much you care.

Sideshow is a great company, but they are lacking with the QC and a lot o people, including myself, are really disappointed with the recent releases.

Btw, I was playing Soul Calicur V today, great game and incredible character design. I can only dream with a PCS line in 1/4 for this game. Siegfried, Astaroth, Cervantes, Nightmare and Ivy would make a hell of a display
