This poll has nothing to do with if you will order the EX or not. Just if you like the EX head with the flame effects.

Feel free to put your opinion about why you bought it or not but again this is just about the Flame eye effect. Not the Head sculpt itself.

I personally don't like the flame effect.

I respect that SS tried something different, but it just doesn't work imo.....looks a little like Supes eyes have been gouged out.
...and I like the angle and look of the EX head better than the reg....minus the worms.

:lecture It's no doubt the proposed light up red eyes look boss compared to the actual SS EX head prototype. I welcome the change and hope they do it but at the same time as someone else mentioned I don't blame SS and actually applaud their effort to try something different. :clap Just means I'll have the EX displayed with the reg head if they go through with it. :D

Ordered the EX and I like it. Still would have liked to have seen what red eyes alone would have looked like but the EX head will be rotated and displayed when the mood strikes me.

From the pics weve seen, i dont care much for the flames. But Ive said the same kind of thing before and Im learning to reserve judgement until I see it in hand.

I mean, this is Superman! Will SS deliver something that isnt A+ for this piece? This will be one of THE pieces that will pull DC readers into these collectibles. SS cant mess this up.

Yeah I gave you credit when I originally brought you pic over.... That dirty rotten MASTERSafara... Well he forgot...:rotfl

I have seen two other photoshop jobs in an attempt to replace the Ex eyes, and I haven't cared for either... Then I saw yours, and YES I agree it would be an improvement.

I honestly think the poll should be change to give people the either or comparisson. The original or Jorge version.... That gives SSC SOMETHING SPECIFIC to look at and compare... Instead of just fanboy complaining....lol

I did not add anything about the light up or either or option because I thought this should just be about what we are getting.

I am about 100% sure that if SS could make it look like the one photoshop photo listed above it would be a landslide of people voting for that.

Thing is, I don't think we have a snowball's chance in hell to get a light up feature. So I was just curious how many like or dislike what we are getting.

No complaing, no *****ing, just straight up voting.

Oh and I thought it would be nice to have a Superman thread that did not have 700++ Spidey comments :) ;)

I wish they would give us a third head without the noodles. I would display the noodles a little to spark conversation but my favorite would be the EX head with red eyes only. That head sculpt is killer just lose the noodles. I don't care if they would light up or not just give us a head with red angry eyes.

This would make an awesome 3rd switch out head. Unfortunately they'd have to delay this statue another year to incorporate engineering the light up feature so I doubt they'd go that route. I'd certainly be up for Sideshow proving me wrong though, and delivering what the fans want, and wouldn't mind a delayed release to work this in.

Who's to say the light up head can't be painted red for the eyes, they just light up bright red when you turn the lights on... If you put white leds, you'll need the pupils to be painted red anyway just like the cyclops EX head.

While I'm not really getting into this argument because I see both sides, you might want to use a better example than the Cyclops EX since he looks like one of the cast members from the original "Hills have Eyes" found an X-men suit from the 90's.

Well the head sculpt is bad. But the eyes looks fine.


Personally I would rather it just be paint. That way no delays.

On the other hand I would be glad to have a year delay if that ment no flame effect for the eyes.

I would go for a third head. But I just don't see SS doing that. The removal of the Fire effect seems like an easy fix for SS.

But as you have said. To make all happy I would be fine with three heads.

But, and I know it's early, I think those who like or want the EX head as it is presented now will be in the minority by a lot. It's starting to pull away at the SF site.

But I would love to see everyone happy. Thing is. I think everyone will be happy with just red eyes. If they never showed us the Flame eyes we all would have been singing nothing but praises for this piece. The only thing the thread would be alive with is out mutual love for the EX head and talk about the ES.

Instead they put in the Flame effect and frustrate 75% of the fans.

I am also going after thie because

A - this should be a very easy fix for SS. Infact it should be easier for them to do just Red eys then add the Flames

B - With time I though I was getting to be OK with it. But the more I looked the more I just thought it was awful.

C - If the EX head sculpt was not so great I would not care what they did with the eyes. Sure there is still a great reg sculpt head but why can't we have two great sculpted heads?

As someone said. The Eyes look almost like a gore effect. There is no eye in Supermans head. It looks like Superman lost his eyes. Again I understand what they are going for I just think they missed the mark. And I really believe that many more people would be happy with the change. Even those who like the Flame effect.

When the Cobra Commander PF prototype was revealed his chrome-dome was a matte grey painted mask. It didn't look quite right. Fans requested that SS change the mask to make it have an actual metallic chrome finish and it was done eventually. A lot of people agreed they wanted it changed and SS was wonderful and made it happen. It really brought the Commander's PF up a notch. The same could easily be done for Supes if they keep the same Ex sculpt, fill in the eyes and remove the worms. Red paint would avoid delays and there wouldn't be the risk of light up malfunctioning. Here's hoping SS has wonderful customer service again and listens to the fans. :)

The thing that annoys me the most is that you can't even snap the noodles off and leave him with red eye's because he actually doesn't have eye's.

It's just an all round terrible design. Makes you wonder with SS's dodgy QC why would you even bother with something like this when everyone would have been happy with just paint.

I don't think they look like worms and I also don't think it's that big of a deal to be honest. The regular head is perfect. I'm going to pose him with the regular head no matter whatever type of variant head they came up with. I prefer they give us a variant cape that's shorter and a little less over-the-top.

I go back and forth with the flame eyes. I have seen a couple of pictures and thought they looked good, but then I have seen a couple of close ups and thought..egad.

I think the biggest issue is that there doesnt appear to be any eye. IF they came off an eye maybe it would work better, but as is, they look like they leaked out.

In my opinion the person who thought of the ex version, and the person who approved it are totally lost in the brainpan. And no, I don't feel bad for dissing you, whomever you are.

I am about 100% sure that if SS could make it look like the one photoshop photo listed above it would be a landslide of people voting for that.

Thing is, I don't think we have a snowball's chance in hell to get a light up feature. So I was just curious how many like or dislike what we are getting.

No complaing, no *****ing, just straight up voting.

Oh and I thought it would be nice to have a Superman thread that did not have 700++ Spidey comments :) ;)

Yeah I may cancel and eat the NRD. No point in paying import and taxes and delivery adding $150 to the price to bring him into Canada unless they change the Ex. I could snag a Reg local for $360 saving $190 or just wait for a Reeve PF which would be my ultimate Supes PF.

You won't be saving that much though... you payed the NRD ... the other factor that you are forgetting is... what if the DO change this ... or it looks AMAZING in hand. We don't know what this is going to look like in the end ... not for sure. If people start canceling and it gets improved I think I may laugh my *** literally off.

The Superman PF looked like the definitive Superman to me so I had to order it.

I am hoping that Sideshow removes the worms and either:
a) paints the eyes red
b) puts in a light up feature
c) paints the eyes as normal blue

I would be very satisfied with any of these options.

We can all agree that this Superman is a WIN. Just some of us find it to be 95% win and others find it to be 100%

I am in the 95% win camp and it's why I am on this kick to get it changed.

With the red eyes only look it could be 110% win and that is what I hope we get. I don't care if it's an extra head or if they just ditch the flame effect. To me they took what is an amazing sculpt and put something on it that will distract you from the sculpt. That is a no no.

I agree. If SS can adjust this Ex (just to remind new people reading this, they did it for Green Lantern's and Cobra Commander's PFs) then this would be IMHO one of the BEST PFs SS has ever done. Superman deserves better and I really hope they get this right. Nothing wrong in admitting you can do better and upping this PF a notch SS. :lecture SS already nailed it by changing the Reg portrait, now the same needs to be done for the Ex. :) Heading out now all, but look forward to reading your thoughts later. :peace

Well i know im new here but this is my two cents on the matter. Sideshow is getting cheap. This is an amazing statue with amazing portraits and the exclusive is an easy way out imho. Everyone wanted/expected light up heat vision for the EX. Or atleast red eyes. What they came
up with here again in my opinion is a cheap alternative. They seem to be good at that recently (rhino). If they dont change this i think we will see many damaged deliveries coming our way.

I think so too. I applaud the effort :clap of SS to do something different, but the reaction hasn't been positive. :lecture It's a prototype in pre-order so we know they can easily change it and I think they should change it if they're monitoring customer feedback.

Hey new or old ALL pinions are valid and important. My two cents is it is the opposite of them being cheap though. Red painted eyes would be easier and cheaper SO they took a chance, but many don't think it paid off. However, as for a light up feature a lot of people don't want that either. I am not sure if there is a proper answer at this point.

As of the time I type this, more than three out of four people don't like the flame eyes effect. And yet this (http://www.statueforum.com/showthread.php?t=135866) poll suggests that three out of four people are buying the EX with the flame eye effect. Go figure.

I voted no and ordered the REG. Even without the "flame eye effect, the EX isn't as good as the REG. The REG face sculpt captures the essence of the character nearly perfectly.

Uh, you do know the ex comes with both heads, the ex and regular version heads, right? That would be why we are all buying the ex despite not loving it. It can't hurt having that worm head packed away in the box.

The only damage it could possibly do is send Sideshow the message that the people dissatisfied with the exclusive portrait are a vocal minority who will buy it anyway.

Wouldnt it help them sell more in the end instead of doing everything in secrecy and then having people not like it? i just dont get it. :gah:

Word on the street the Ex will be adjusted. It isn't selling what SS had anticipated. None the less a great sculpt on the Reg.

If nobody buys the EX and it gets a low edition size then SS change it, your sitting on gold.

If not you paid the same anyway and you get more money back on a sale.

I agree Jaws and its certainly possible that SSC could tweak some changes to the EX portrait by the time it goes out on release. Look at the Hulk Maquette for example, when you compare the proto pics to what we actually recieved you can see a few evident changes such as the hair, the eyebrows, etc...so things can still be changed :pray:

Oh without doubt i prefer the Hulk proto but the changes were very subtle ones like the eyebrows and hair were slightly different than originally shown but i'd prefer it if those red curly things were removable, give the option for those who'd prefer to display it with them and those who'd rather have just the red eyes. I think that would be a much better idea and then it would cater for everyones taste...dont you think? :dunno

Possibly the flames may be separate... They look fragile and maybe they are attached on to reduce breaking during shipping... That would be great so if you didn't want them... just leave them off...

Not sure why the changes where made on the Hulk. Nobody was asking for them. I still like the eyebrows on the proto better but I like how the paint apps on the face where done on the production piece better (not counting the eyebrows) I like my Hulk's hair. I don't think I knew they changed anything.


Not sure if I would qualify those as changes since they actually made him look worse than the proto...

More like mistakes... :lol

I don't think those are mistakes. One or two would be a mistake. The eyebrows are done that way because of the shape of his brow. It's not as bad in person but it does take away a little bit of rage.

I have one persons in hand opinion about the EX who says it looks sharp in person, and I can see where they get that. So I am going on faith because yeah they work for SSC, but I just don't care because I like this. I was the FIRST person to vote I like it, and to my 40 brothers and sisters :hi5:.

To the REST OF YOU

:wink1:

Eyebrow gate and Flame gate are two very different things. We worried about Brow gate because it was different from the proto. It looked off. There was concern it was a paint error.

The flame effects are there. We know we may be getting them. This is not a paint error. Even if the Flame effect looks better in person. It's still a bad idea. Superman just never looks like that and He would look some much better and badass if they just gave him red eyes. A perfect sculpt ruined or made les perfect, if you prefer, because of those flame effects.


Sorry for the crudness, but I have like 5 minutes... THIS is why I think there MIGHT be eyeballs there, BUT I might be wrong

Wishful thinking Spidey. There are no eyeballs there. :)


When did SSF get spell check? Now if I misspell something I get a red line under it.

Dumb***:nana::wink1:

I still think there might be eyes in there that it is fused to similiar to how they fused the Jokers feet on to his legs

Looks like those flames slide right into the socket. Sure to ruin a perfect sculpt ;) :)

There is a curved surface there on his right eye near the inside corner. At least I am pretty sure there is.

Why SSC just didn't offer these curly straws as a removable option I'll never know. I can see a lot of customisers already planning in their head how they're going to remove them and add some red eyes. Easily done IMO

I don't hate the eyes (don't love 'em either), but this is what the Ex head should have been, no doubt.

Because you like them? There are no eye's. I'm not even sure why they would even design it like this since the socket's will have to be counter sunk (or molded hollow) then small bits of plastic stuck inside with glue.

If you didn't know any better you'd think it was an April fools joke it's that unnecessarily complicated. They could have easily added the fixed worms to edge of existing eyeballs with a small pin hole or just glued straight on.

Anyway this thread is a meri-go round now. It's clear the vast majority that voted think the EX sucks donkey *****.

No, because I see something that I think could be the sphere of an eyeball, BUT has I have said before I could easily be wrong.

Oh I do, I so so do....

While not great is it any better than Visions Ex Head?
I laugh every time I see it but applaud Sideshow for actually doing it.

The other flaw in this exclusive is the lack of rage on the face when using the heat vision. Make both sculpts different at least.

If they were going to [email protected]$$ it like this I even go as far as to say that the 90's Superman with the mullet hair would have made for a better alternate head than the spaghetti eyes.
