    Not only that but Raf has shown that some texture on a hat goes a long way so a casted CM AP hat is cool but something with texture would be better.

    As an owner of Raf's Fedora I quite agree that the textured exterior works really well. But then that's based on a fabric hat. Jack's hat on the other hand is leather, which for me lends itself more to a solid piece. Personally I think a leather hat at that scale would be difficult to achieve convincingly.
    I think a lot of the illusion comes down to the painting. Again this is an area where Raf's Fedora outshines the original offering.

    You lucky...... :O
    I would imagine such a rare accessory given by George himself has increased the value of your Captain Sparrow considerably!

    I agree whole heartedly with you guys here.. The production run of these were different from piece to piece in many ways, hair, color, paint. I am very very attatched to mine as I feel I was very lucky to be in the early runs to receive my piece.. Therefore, his hair could not be more perfect, the paint (complextion) I am very happy with as well..with a new piece to shell out $3000 for just a hat and coat seems alot to me.. Unless you shell out the initial money's then if your not 100% happy with it the specimen, you can switch out the hat and coat on your old piece. Problem is some of do not have the disposable income to front $3000.

    Assuming it is only $3000. Sculpting a base for the Alien is one thing. Tailoring a coat in small numbers for an AP run may be more money. The Alien ($1500) is a fully sculpted piece and Jack ($1750) is more complex. A full Jack AP may be something many would pass on.
