Got mine last week. Its a really good statue really nothing about it I don't think isn't cool. The way the face is all decaying is really cool, the nasty green color of his skin, and the dark dreary color of his clothing are just some of my faves with this piece.

07-25-2005, 04:23 AM
Oke thanks now i know for sure i want it. :D

I'm ni the UK and I'm still waiting a shipping notice!

I had the 16 day notice on 13 July. I suspect it'll ship end of this week, or beginning of August :banana :bow :thud

Most of the stuff that comes from SS seems to arrive here on a Friday/Saturday :google :google

You'll enjoy this statue. It's kinda good to get them on a Friday or Saturday, that way it makes your weekend better.:yay

Oh yeah, check out the poll I started on the King of the Dead.

I'm waiting for my replacement from sideshow. :bang2

Got mine the day before yesterday. It's ok, but I'm not thrilled with it so I'm going to sell it. On the other hand I got Eowyn yesterday and I like it a lot, so I'll keep her.

07-27-2005, 08:02 AM
I am on the waitlist for this one. :(

I'm waiting for my replacement from sideshow.

I'm still waiting for mine to be picked up for return! :doh

07-27-2005, 03:51 PM
:banana Got mine yesterday:dance This is a very detailed piece that is flowing wth action. It looks like the KOTD has just spun from out of the ground:google as apparitions will do from time to time. A fun piece to have in my collection !

07-27-2005, 04:36 PM
I love this piece, it is one of the best by sideshow. It is colorful without being cartoony and really conveys the character well. The flowing robe is a shipping miracle. :clap

Got my shipping notice from Bob at Fireside, it's on it's way.

Just got shipping notice from Sideshow! :rock

Fingers crossed it's here for the weekend! :toast


07-28-2005, 04:23 AM
What was wrong with yours Darthrage?

A piece of the robe near the base was cracked off.

07-28-2005, 01:57 PM
I just bought mine from Mike. :bow :rock

07-28-2005, 02:17 PM
Mine will be here Monday :rolleyes want him NOWWWW!

So it looks like next week could possibly be KOTD and Pippin... and depending on exactly when it arrives in the warehouse, Weathertop too. If not, then Weathertop will be early the next week!!!

07-28-2005, 04:51 PM
Mine will be here onTuesday.

KoTD #707 arrived today - completely (and raggedly) broken off the base. Back he goes.

Not a fan of this base-attaching. My Eowyn arrived with the helm broken off the base. It went back too.

KoTD is gorgeous, though.

07-29-2005, 10:36 AM
geeze... now i'm nervous for mine.. he's been traveling for over a week now.. and that was just from the dealer to me! I really hope it doesn't come broken.. that would SUCK! I've only ever recieved one broken, and that was Legolas.... fingers crossed!

07-29-2005, 10:37 AM
Now I'm getting REALLY worried. I'm supposed to be getting both of these statues next week, shipped TOGETHER, no less. With my track record of damaged/defective polystone, I'm going to be afraid to even open the box!


07-29-2005, 10:43 AM
I've never had this much trouble with Sideshow pieces before. Very discouraging. And probably very discouraging for the dealer I purchased them from, too. It's money out of their pocket until they've been reimbursed for the broken one, since it's not my responsiblility to pay for 2 until the broken one is credited.

Hope none of the upcoming statues area pre-attached to the bases.:(

07-29-2005, 12:55 PM
You would have thought shipping tests would have shown that attaching it to the base wasn't the smartest idea... :dunno

07-29-2005, 12:56 PM
Wow that really sucks Nazgurl!! Two in a row :( Man, I am really glad now that mine made it intact.

07-29-2005, 07:41 PM
KOTD is the most fragile piece I have ever seen. Upon opening the box, I was amazed that they could even manufacture this. Mine is mint, fortunately. :rock

I still have never received a broken piece. (*knocks on wood*)

07-29-2005, 07:45 PM
I agree Elwood. Its among the most fragile in the line thats for sure.

What number did you guys get? Mine was 0055/6500.


07-29-2005, 08:18 PM
822 I believe is the number I got.

Little late, but I just purchased this statue and it arrived today and wow, what a piece! The detail and pose are just awesome and thankfully, mine arrived in flawless condition. Good job, Sideshow! :D

mine has a broken finger, though you dont really notice it, and i only paid £30 for it!
Dont know if it happened in transit, or in the shop where I bought it.
