    Default Resin Statues from China

    Has anyone ever bought a resin statue from China off of eBay? Iím wondering what the quality of these things are? Iíve seen terminator heads and arms and the pictures look good but itís hard to tell.

    Are you sure you want to ask that question here?

    Those so called statues from China that you are talking about are recasts for sure. You know what that means right?
    Stolen work of art ! Copied stuff to get a profit out for themselves where an artist has putted a lot of work into.
    Difficult to copy or fake an artist' signature work, so yes quality is bad.

    Sorry. I didnít realize this was a taboo topic. I donít think theyíre necessarily copies. I believe some are originals albeit most likely not licensed. Sideshow themselves have done this. For example their Vader helmet was largely inspired by an independent artist. Nonetheless I was really just wondering about the craftsmanship. Not looking to debate artistic freedoms. Theyíre still being done by artists so the quality might be good. I just donít know.

    There are two types of 'resin statue' from China, which one did you refer to?

    Since there is no offical product of this 1/4 Winston queen, almost everything floating on internet is recast & unlicensed.
    It's like before Chronicle collectible was found, there is no problem post all those rex&raptor&dilo bust/JP maquttes.

    You and I will most certainly have to agree to disagree on that.

    The original pieces were created for the film as reference pieces by SWS. As Iím sure youíre aware, a licensed cast of the upper body was created by Sideshow. So yes, there is ďofficialĒ product. Matrix Studios gets away with it here because itís an attractive recast.

    I've purchased the T-800 busts from sideshow and some from China off Ebay just to display around the house.
    they are a lot cheaper and i can honestly say i was astonished when they come apart from the removable chip, there is no difference!

    Chrome, paint and sculpt were pretty much exact and this is many £100's Cheaper

    but you are also taking a risk when ordering no matter what the price

    I dont think the personal risk is the issue. The issue is what recasting does to the hobby, the moral aspect and what your money funds when you give it to these people...al types of evil things, that's what. Google it.
