    body looks great. large and extended head hurt the entire look of him. Why not use a different head? I guess it's too late, seeing it's on ebay now. is it?

    Don't agree maybe its the pics as he looks fine in person

    I had to raise the head up slightly to allow for the ball joint movement

    The colours did come out a little lighter in the pics and of the fig does not meet my reserve I shall re shoot

    When u add a ball joint into a head you have to raise it up slightly to give it freedom of motion....... As I used the rotf leader meg chest plate as a base chances are the head will be in scale.....

    while it's cool to disagree, it's also even cooler to accept constructive criticism. to me, the head and hands look like they aren't even painted yet. The body and build is nice, but there's too much fighting between the head and the body. it's usually better to have a head that's too small, than one that's too big.

    I totally know how pics can throw stuff off..

    But, from what I see in the pictures, the head looks as through it would fit better if it was lower and pushed back between the shoulders.

    What is making the color on the head and hands stand it is that there is nothing surrounding them to bring them into the piece. Looking at the high res pics, his head and hands are different. Yet, so are the "center" part of his torso and parts of the arms.

    We all appreciate the work put into this, but if you want to get the most bling for your time, those are a few things that could help the over all piece look even more impressive.

    as for this, the best thing may not always be to "raise" the head, but add space around the head and "neck" to add movement.
