I like the Blugeon mold and I think this looks good, however I always worry about the thumb with the tight fitting sword handles. That's on the $20 retail version, I would be really worried over a botcon exclusive version.

Great pics as always though!

The sword DID seem kind of big, but it was fine with no stressing when I placed it in his hand. If anything, the sword would be what stresses because it's handle is soft plastic.

And thanks for the pic compliments man.

Be careful, the hands on that mold WILL break. Treat it nicely and it will treat you nicely.

I LOVE this piece and everything about it. I'm not sure the head could have been smaller without looking silly, not to mention losing some of that splendid detail. It can't rise up any farther so it's got to stand out from those shoulders.

Glad you like the mold though, despite the hand problem it's a favorite of mine.

Cheers!

Nice photos, TJ. I have to say, despite the questionable mold and headsculpt, the deco is striking. It's an surprisingly fascinating figure.

I like that word for it... fascnating, because it describes it very well. It's not my favorite, but there's a definite draw to it.

Wow, great review! I was already planning on tracking this figure down someday, but now I may have to do so sooner than I had thought! He looks even better in these pictures than any I've seen before!

Helmet sculpt looks good, but the face is awful. it looks like it's stuffed into a helmet a few sizes too small. The face is too long, and the eyes look weird.
Here's a list of stuff I'm looking for!
