Well I hopped off the fence and placed my pre-order through Spec Fiction today. The new pics convinced me.

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

I'm with you. I have no issue with the base itself, but my heart skipped a beat or two with the suckerpunch statues.

I took an IQ test and the results were negative.

Lucky seems pretty popular. I don't remember this many pre-orders for Derby.

Ordered mine directly and wiped my reward points out. 45.00 in tax is just a crime!!! Hopefully this will be my last direct order from them.

I had no idea Lucky was up already. My goodness, just look at that face! The artist has done immensely well with her facial features. She's just gorgeous!

Only 2 gripes from this fan here: her shades look wonky and the gun nozzle looks ridiculous for that kind of ammo (or vice versa whichever you prefer). I mean I'm nowhere a gun expert but that stock looks more like what a 50cal door gunner would fire off.

But I'm out for now. These girls are too expensive and I may have to cancel Whisper and Derby even

Did anybody notice they listed Lucky at 1:6 scale? Gotta be a clear error right?

Still she's absolutely the most beautiful girl of the lot. She can fire my gun any day

Just ordered all the 3 girls the other day.. been wanting to place my P.O since Whisper was announced, it took me a while to make my decision bec of the price, but I am sure it is worth it, The details on these girls are phenomenal.. I have the sucker punch Blondie and up to now I am amazed on how well done she is.. Blondie is the reason why I decided to jump on the honey trap line. The quality of the piece gentle giant provide is really something I admire.

I just sold my Babydoll (US version) to my brother at a tremendous discount. Since I hold myself responsible for his new statue collecting addiction, it was the least I could do. And Babydoll was just boxed away in my closet anyway. Unboxing her at his place, I was reminded of the AMAZING detail and paints. Indeed, the Sucker Punch girls are what turned me on to Gentle Giant. Oh, hey, pun!

Even without seeing the movie, they look like they walked straight off a fantasy art exhibit. Which is why I don't feel the need to have all girls in my collection. It will simply be my "odds and ends" pieces. The only one I'll end up keeping will probably be Sweet Pea (and maybe Blondie).

With the Honey Trap girls, I was only ever interested in Whisper, so I'll keep her preorder. Derby looks great as well and is loaded with detail, but it doesn't instill the same love/desire/interest to make me overlook the price tag. So far Lucky is the least interesting to me, but I can see why she would appeal to others. So far, just Whisper.
