    I received mine yesterday. The moment I put this thing together I was blown away. He was already at peace now I just cannot stop looking at him. I can't believe how much a change the space for the better. The quality is outstanding on the jacket. I agree with Karim. I was doing a lot of reference pics and looking before I even read this thread and I had already planned on putting a scabbard on the outside it looks a hell of a lot better. Had the same problem with the hat as everyone else as I could not get it to go down as far as I would like it kept popping up. I like the fact that there's a flexible material out there allowsit to go down a little farther. Unfortunately I cannot post pics as my computer has not been working for over six months I did pass a pic or two along to Steve hopefully you can post when he gets a chance. I just played my treasure chest which is a work of art on it's own behind him I'm loving this look. I really feel bad for the ones I did not get in on this in time as this is to me one of the best exclusive that Cinemaquette could have done for me anyway in my opinion. And honestly one of the best things I like about this is close of peace is the certificate of authenticity and it is so clever and so well done I must've looked at it 15 different times last night. Thank you George thank you Steve thank you everyone for making this happen. It literally feels like I have a brand-new piece of my houseI am more than 100% happy with this guy. There's so much detail already to him and clothing and tailoring this just adds a whole more dimension of layer which I love

    Sorry i cannot upload the pic right away! Unfortuantely all of my CM collection has still slept in their own box. I don't have any space but in the future soon i'm full of hope!!!
    I'm like crazy am not i? Only collecting the boxes at the moment :lol:
    When i was unboxing the Jack's chest all of detail looks so amazing, The jacket is absolutely awesome highly detailed, COA is amazing extreamly different from another certificate of authenticity Thanks a lot George for everything and i'm always say and say that really really proud for being a part of Jack's Exclusive version for AP CBD members. :top:

    Great feedback guys and I'll be passing it all back over to George.
    I am so happy that this worked out so well and that some of you guys who didn't get in on the Alien exclusive were able to jump on this. The coat and hat make a huge difference to how the piece presents and I can't imagine going back.

    No problems Zhong and really glad you like it.
    Can you post some pictures please that demonstrate the flexibility - like perhaps you bending or squeezing it?

    Okay thanks Zhong. Just shoot a short video on your phone and upload to photobucket - that will demonstrate the flexibility better than pictures.
    Raf if it is polyurethane foam will it last as long as resin?

    Actually I don't think it is Karim. I just got back and can bend my hat in the same way. The hat is - probably unintentionally - can be squeezed - probably more so if it is warm. It does not however have the properties of foam, rubber or silicone. It's probably only bendable because it's thin at the sides.
    However I doubt very much it is designed for this purpose. And I wouldn't recommend bending it.
