Hi Everyone,

I am not sure if this has been posted before and it's a funny topic. Which Sideshow piece to you find to be butt Ugly?

The sicknees of being a completist really stinks at times.

My first choice and the winner hands down is the New Born Yuck Hai. :puke

:drool :x

What were they thiking about when they designed this one?

I was told by a pretty reliable source that Weta thinks this is one of their finest sculpts. LOL. They should share what they are smoking with the rest of us.

I am not too fond of the Argorn/Strider Statue sculpt, but the Yuck Hai I think is my first choice as the ugliest statue produced.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks,
Mike

Based on what the Newborn Uruk is supposed to represent, it is supposed to be butt ugly isn't it?:dunno

I would agree that the Newborn Uruk is the ugliest sculpt. I know it's SUPPOSED to be ugly, but it looks like it just got squirted on by a cat with diarrhea. What should look like dark green or brown slimy mud instead looks like runny bowel movement. The likeness also isn't that great, but I read in an interview somewhere that the Uruk specifically requested that none of the merchandise made of his character should look exactly like him...

Stop it Tom. LOL. You made my afternoon. LMFAO.

Yes, it is supposed to be Ugly. But ...

The Balrog and Lurtz and Ugluk are all Ugly Monsters as well and they are incredible statues.

Thanks,
Mike

New Born hands down and he is great. Looks as ugly as in the movie with his friend just starting to rise from the muck.
Besides how pretty do you think you looked when you were coming out!

Although I haven't seen it in person, Newborn would get my vote at well.

NBU wins very easily. :puke
And I'm still silly enough to own it! :lol :bonk

Next would be Aragorn IMHO, only due to the fact that he
doesn't look even remotely like Viggo.

Definite NBU as a statue

Tie between Pippin & Moria Orc Swordsman for bust, they almost look alike.

The Newborn is definetly one ugly guy so I think my top vote would have to go to him.

I also find the orc brute to be quite disgusting. :puke

Orc Overseer

I'm with Rod. Overseer is the worst statue, imo.

For me it would have to be the Orc Overseer and Cleaved Orc bust. :puke

very unfair all of you who say orc overseer is ugly, it's quite good, actually better than many others considered as good.
