    have to agree on the MIB bust , you really have to be a hardcore fan on that one, , maybe it needs more yrs to get to a higher level if in fact that happens , the IM i feel its a different story for the silicone face and mechanism as dennis stated, but if it is something you wont lose sleep over then your good , thats how i see my collection, i always, ask myself , can i live without this? would i miss it if i didnt have it in my collection, , and go from there lol

    agreed Raf. Now, I think if I cancelled my Lycan maquette, I might lose sleep over it just seeing that Marcus never pops up for order in the states and I've yet to see one since he was released. Quality Werewolf statues just don't come along too often. Not to mention that Dio is gonna be freaking epic.

    Look at the T8oo ,T850, TX even the Alien cinemaquette retailers couldnt get rid of them years ago ,you could pick them dirt cheap ,now see how much they go for that's if you can find one lol.
    Personally I think when MIB bust sells out and new collectors come to the front eventually the price will rise because its very cool.

    To me, i dont see price will increase much because its allready high but wont decrease too much too...

    +plus:
    -Silicon face and RDJ likeness very good, no other compagny do silicon
    -Faceplate mechanism
    -RDJ signature even if its print
    -Quality of the paint
    -Size of the statue
    -Light very bright
    -heavy statue
    -Box is huge so difficult to ship after, will limit second hand sell, lot of seller will prefer pick up only
    -.....

    -less:
    -lot of iron man statue on the market, 450 CM pieces is more than i expected especially when i know darth vader is only around 300 pieces, and sold around 1500€-1800€ on second market, we'll see in the futur...
    -not museum pose
    -because of the action pose, base is huge, people can't display behind cabinet...
    -price $2600 allready high, around 2600€ here in EU
    -some people complain about eyes direction but for me, hes in action in movement so its natural...
    -box are more and more huge...where store all of them? At Raf's storage :D:D
    -.....

    If you collect only 1/3 scale go for it now because even if you find one on second market for exemple $2000-2000€, seller will prefer only pick up because of the size and weight of the box

    Time is enjoy :D

    Yeah sure collectors are trying to flip this at $3,000 and it may seem ridiculous now with the piece available for new for $2,500 but here's the thing, CM could sell out tomorrow, or CM could decide that stock is low enough they wanna charge $2,750 or $3,000 for the piece.

    Only time will tell. I could see it getting to $3k on a regular basis down the road. That would price me out of this for sure if that happens, but I can't have everything as much as I want too lol
