After reading all these posts about how Saltus covers a lot of what's important to me I've decided I still can't get past the chest design. Especially with how prominent it is in bot mode. The straight lines and black paint to represent shadows just destroys the look for me.. if it was a plastic piece I'd be tempted to get one and resculpt something but that's not going to happen with diecast. Very pleased for everyone who's got a Saltus and is happy with him and that there's no deal-breaking QC issues or anything else, big fan of Ocular Max and always want to see them do well. Looks like I'm back in the hopeful Virtus camp for now.
