    From what we can see... it looks nice! I would love to get hi-res pics from an owner when they get it.

    There is no price yet, but I think he's going off of previous maquettes like the Avatar AMP Suit one which goes for about a grand.

    Exactly. This thing will easily be in the $800+ range, judging by similar pieces. I'll be shocked if it's cheaper. I'm sure it will be quite the sight at the Sideshow booth at SDCC, though.

    You can zoom in on that picture if you go to the actual gallery.
    Looks pretty damn nice and detailed but it's waaay out of my price range.

    The paint and sculpting is still superb, but I'm not that fond of the pose. Just looks weird. And I wonder where those blue plates on the arms came from, I don't remember seeing them at any point in the movies...

    His pose makes him look like he has scoliosis and a case of the runs.

    Is it just me, or does the head look a little big? Nice detailing, though.
