@nearmint, with the year coming to a close, what would be your Top 3 statues of the year?

 

I would go like this:

 

  1. Sideshow Red Sonja
  2. Prime 1 Serpentor
  3.  Level 52 Studios Catgirl (taking a leap of faith -- this one should arrive shortly after Christmas)

I have pre-ordered this as well. I am honestly surprised it hasn't sold out with an edition of only 200 pieces.

And a lot of dust too I know ha. I like the link statue too, but he is always popping off his pegs...

The painting was done by my late grandad, of me and my little brother when we were kids.... and our dog :foryou:

Frazetta statues are just not that popular. Always seems to take small editions a while to sell.

I still debate getting the black version. I'm not crazy about the base but it's the best black costume or symbiote Spider-Man I've seen so far.

I don't know. My Snake Eyes statue was delayed again. I'm assuming Scarlett will be delayed as well but she was always scheduled for next year. My top would probably have to be a smaller scale statue or figure. I have to look around and give it some thought.

 

Looks like Swamp Thing came out ok. I might have to decide on one when I finish the Wrightson Artist Edition.

Got this one a few days ago :whee:

And the real box - I added a blu-ray movie to show the size:

Inside the box...

Cranius is really awesome - unfortunately there's just no way to truly capture statues using photos, statues look so much better in the real world - but the following pics may provide some impressions.

Cranius' base:

Next: the giant Swamp Thing base weighing about 20 lbs:

Turtle close-up:

Snake close-up:

The back of the base:

210720116402.thumb.JPG.f23296521c3724a8daee25a5787a0b9c.JPG

Note how the base is made to make it look like Swamp Thing is standing in water - truly awesome:

210720116422.thumb.JPG.d0733df2b274f5d2f73e61c9a683e28a.JPG

Bottom of the base:

And now with Swamp Thing - he completely dwarfs my large 1/4 Batman DKR statue. Both statues are 1/4 in size. I think Swampy is slightly too large, but I don't have a problem with that, it makes Swampy look even more impressive next to Batman: 

 DSC_1407.thumb.JPG.e6d1c24d11202cf1bb4d25adc250a0e3.JPG

Swamp Thing looks quite different depending on the light - here're a few examples:

14122018-3.thumb.JPG.5562fb6140c6718db786ff83e86d03ee.JPG

- and here taken with a real camera (I'm using a smartphone):

The complexity of Swamp Thing is astonishing, check out his back:

I'm really happy for the piece, it's everything I hoped for and even more. I better start reading the Saga of Swamp Thing again, there's no better motivation for reading those books than looking at this statue. The complexity of the statue is so high I feel I'll never get tired of looking at it. It even makes my Galactus maquette look dull and boring!

Awesome, thanks for the pics. I was fence-sitting this one for a long time. Huge Swampy fan, but man that is a pricey and large statue. Not sure where I'd put it even if I decided to spend the $$$. But your post has me reconsidering...

I’m digging the PVC statues that have good detail for a reasonable price. The brown suit Wolverine is a recent release that I preordered for myself and my wife decided to wrap up as a Christmas present.

Sorry, I didn't see your post before today.  I'd go with these three, although I only own one of them:

1) XM Hulkbuster

2) Thanos on Throne

3) Sideshow Red Sonja

You're welcome - I've had it for more than a month, and I still can't take my eye off it ;-) It's covered by a lot of paint, and it looks muddy - but that's just how Swampy should look. Like the swamp, Swampy absorbs light, so this statue does benefint from a lot of light - also to show it's surface structures and shadows. In a badly lit room the statue doesn't necessarily show many colors - it may simply look like this:

1.thumb.JPG.9951513d93a7cbf540e19e0bef5ae36a.JPG2.JPG.ead12e54e496d7c353c1a474fbcb5089.JPG

 

I'm considering setting up some spot lights to really show off the statue. About the $$$, note that depending on your location shipping and VAT may be expensive. I paid $200 for the shipping (from Hong Kong to Scandinavia, took 1 day using DHL Express, awesome speed, but not free ;-) - and $275 for VAT - $1250 in total.
