    The ECC Cinemaquette is not a real Cinemaquette? Why they call it Cinemaquette then?

    I agree that making the "original" distinction is a little clumsy when you just tried two sentences earlier to convince people that it is the next Volume. Especially when the Creature is mentioned in the same paragraph.
    However, I'd just let if drift and disregard it as unlucky choice of words.

    I think "original" just means not co-branded. So the Creature = a wholly produced Cinemaquette production released by Cinemaquette, and the Reaper equals a joint production between ECC and CM - released by Cinemaquette.
    I think the point is just to illustrate that it's not ECC/CM together from here on in.
    Does that make sense?

    ECC or CM or sideshow not matter which compagny
    For me now i would only collec silicon, quality and same scale... (1/3)
    Currently only CM do this
    CM should make arms or hands in silicon when its possible...

    Yes it makes sense. Thing is that the opposite to original is fake in most collectors minds. :|

    Wouldn't that be 'authentic' or 'genuine' - the opposite to original being 'copy' or 'unoriginal'? But I'm splitting hairs.

    I know where you're coming from, Steve. :lol:
    It's when you picture a fresh collector to CM reading this paragraph, what would they think?

    Honestly Lars I don't think the announcement is aimed at new collectors - who probably are none the wiser either way. Instead I think this announcement was made for the benefit of the existing fan base, given some of the reaction around whether CM was transmogrifying into ECC.
    It's a difficult proposition to communicate for sure, and while it undoubtedly makes complete sense to all those involved, I think we both agree that sometimes you achieve more by warming collectors up to new directions in advance, rather than trying to clarify things afterwards as above.
