If I was a bepop fan I would go for it. If it was Outlaw Star and that Was Gene Starwind I would jump on it without a second thought...

What do you guys think; Is the statue + shipping worth ~465 usd? I've heard a lot of praise for the piece, but the simplicity is still a concern for me.
I have it and I like it a lot. They are all simple since they are pretty much 3D representations of anime characters. That said, the paint was pretty close to perfect and I didn't have any issues at all. The switchable arm for the exclusive was worth it to me.

Honestly, I thought it was a bargain for the price considering the soaring prices from other companies.

The simplicity threw me off of Spike at first, too. Then I randomly wanted it lol. I waitlisted the Ex and converted. I shouldnít have skipped it to begin with but it worked out and itís a keeper. The simplicity doesnít bother me at all. Saying that as an owner of dynamic, detailed or super switch out pieces like Rogue Maquette, F4F Ganondorf, XM Samurai Batman. But this is an Anime character and they didnít take a SS or XM approach, they stayed faithful. Also while I prefer action poses I think this calmer pose fits Spikeís overall personality better. An action pose wouldíve been cool but Spikeís a laid back guy.

Iím still waiting on my Jet Ex. Iím in for Jill. And hopefully theyíll finish the squad with an Ed and Ein combo.

But finish the line with Vicious if we can take it that far...

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I held out and waited because of the simplicity as well. Also, I don't have any 1/4 pieces in my collection anymore so there was that. However, I jumped on it and it converted and was glad I didn't pass it up.

I have the Jet Ex and the paint app is great on him as well. Honestly, I think the ex switch outs fit the characters more than just a gun, but the guns look great too.

Finally got my Jet yesterday. Looks great. But the hair is way too grey for me. It should be black or very dark grey. I’m wondering what the point of reference was for this very grey hair?

This is what I'm waiting for.

I have all the others (just waiting for Faye to ship)

But man at this point when Jet was almost done, we had at least already seen some of the sculpt options they were narrowing down for Faye.

I really want to see something about Ed & Ein!
