    Many thanks Raf for all your time to give us as much information and pics :top: the color looks amazing! :cool:

    a case with 70 by 70 cm would fit too... right?

    Okay guys photobucket is back up. So some of my pics with lights on and off as well as in natural lighting from sun. Also some close ups of face both with artificial and natural lighting.

    Sorry for poor quality of the photos but again this was taken with iPhone 6S Plus and even so couldn't load it directly because it was too big. Each pic is about 1-2 megabytes . . . if I used regular camera we are talking over 5 megabytes so this is best I can do. Hopefully you can all still appreciate incredible portrait and magnificent automotive paint job.

    Ferrari of Iron Man collectibles!! :)

    No doubt Stephen. I don't think enough has been made about this on the general collecting boards but this silicone likeness is amazing and RDJ's approval in the form of his signature demonstrates this. He has never before done this with any other company.

    A lot of people have zero idea how incredibly challenging it is to create a great silicone likeness even at 1:1 scale let alone 1:3 scale. Whoever did this should be very, very proud of his/her work.

    Yes of course. Hard to imagine one of the biggest movie stars in world agreeing to sign for over one hour lol. Also we don't know how many was sold and so how many he would have needed to sign if they wanted a personal signature. The fact he was willing to sign at all is enough for me. They couldn't get Mark Ruffalo for Hulk for example ...

    I liked Hulk and thought about it but just could not find a place to reasonably display it. It's footprint is almost the same as a lifesize.

    I also wish they would have added 500 dollars and given us two more Ultrons hanging on to him. It would have taken the piece to the next level, made the pose a lot more understandable, and likely convinced me to get it.

    Nope. None of their licenses appeal enough to me where I would spend thousands on them not to mention display space.

    The only Underworld piece I would spend 2k on is Kate Beckinsale silicone Selene and that's it! Lol.

    In person the pose is fine. It's completely natural and a nice alternative to the museum poses out there. I also don't know what the big deal is with his arc of vision.

    I think there's a lot of nit picky collectors who sit around criticizing pieces that they never plan on owning based on photos. They also have impossibly high expectations and want the world for their dollar while knowing absolutely nothing about what is going on in the Chinese factories across the Pacific as well as the licensing complexities that exist in today's collectibles market.

    I really want this statue. Congrats to those that have one coming. Unless I sell some of my 1:1 Godaiking busts, I will never get to have it.
