Draxian is a totally unknown character.
Don't know actual ES of Shape of Water but Draxian should be lower and apparently is one of if not the lowest of all CM pieces.
Both have wild colors but Draxian has more color than most any pieces. Have seen unboxing and in hand pics of Draxian none of Shape of Water.

Shape of Water is more recognizable but still pretty niche.
Shape of Water has WAY too much base, too wide and deep. Ever since Freddy ECC's been running with the huge base containing a scene.
Shape of Water is sculpted by the creator of the character and key artist for the film so it definitely has pedigree.

Purchase decision time or picking one to cancel?
My Draxian should be here in 3 days.

No I only got one.
Sorry I didn't get back to you was intending to call Cinemaquete today to get the final numbers but had a meeting.

I think the Shape of Water one could be a sleeper especially in person.

A lot of them but from those 2 videos the SoW especially comes off looking small when it shows the people handling it. Doesn't mean it is just the video looks that way.

Polyester resin shrinks a lot.
Even the Guyver bust is too small for even for an average Asian human head to fit into which was advertised as crafted from the studio movie molds.
