I think the problem here is that we arn't getting a realistic look at what product we are going to receive in the end, but I understand they need to release the most kick ass pics in order to sell the item to fans.
It's the same with McDonalds/BK, how often does the burger resemble the one on the menu
I think if Sideshow want to avoid a lot of dissapointment in the future, they need to perhaps tone down the fancy lighting in the promo pics (coz we aint got that at home) and show us a factory sample at comic con (not one done by the artist Rembrant).
I've been more than happy with their tailoring department though, those guys are always getting overlooked
Yeah definitely not at the level the Proto made you think it would be but it is a lot better than the previous shots made it look.
I do know someone who has the EX on order & it's been shipped so I'm waiting to see how his turns out but he is bricking it a bit.
hi neil... love the marvel sideshows.. i wanted a rouge premium format to go with my gambit. ultron dude! he looks the nuts.. want one of those too.. but want the exclusive.. see a couple on ebay but very pricey.. did you pre-order yours from sideshow..
talking about paint problems.. i was shocked at some of those pictures.. i mean got quite a few sideshow marvel pieces and i've never had any issues like the ones shown.. guess ive been lucky there.. phew!
just wish i could sell my abomination premium format.. cant display him .. just don't have the room ..
what other sideshow marvel you got mate.. do you have any pics of your collection on here.?
Obvious case of the paint apps not being as good on the head sculpt nor the chain link sleeves from the proto SSC showed at SDCC. It should be noted that a lot of people on SSF are happy with the product in hand though
Only one month to go before the Joker PF is set to be released and this Thor release has done nothing to quell my fear that it won't live up to the prototype
I just don't think that the inhand pictures of Thor are doing it justice.
I still can't decide myself if i want to risk picking it up as it seems that some are painted so badly where some look fantastic. A collector posted up his pics last night and it looked awesome.
My main grip with Sideshow's stuff at the mo is that they seem to have a handful of great painters at the factory and some that are as good at painting as i am (suck).
My Alien Big Chap maquette i recieved afew weeks ago is a good example, the first one i got was painted badly, had paint chips which were just painted over, it just looked really naff for a £600 piece.
Returned it and got a replacement which was miles better, i was shocked at how much the overall paint job differed between the two maquette's.
