Mine was shipped and I have been tracking its progress- it was scheduled for delivery today. It never arrived!!! I was prepared to be here to sign for it. If it comes tomorrow, I won't be here. Have any of you been in this situation before? What has Fed Ex done? They can come back all they want this week, but since today was the day it was scheduled to be delivered, that was the day I arranged to be home. Now it will come at a time when I am not there. Do I risk signing the form to have them leave it at my door and have it get stolen before I get home? What should I do?

Getting mine from Adam at Dark Shadow Collectibles very shortly . Can't wait ! I've got a place all set up for him . Look forward to the Helm as well !
That depends on the area where you live. I have them leave it on my porch and no problems.or.. You can call them and have it delivered where someone is home...:whip
07-19-2005, 08:56 PM
2 more days til mine comes in... :(
07-19-2005, 09:35 PM
Ordered mine from Marc at Alter Ego... haven't heard anything yet.... :dunno
07-19-2005, 09:58 PM
pics .. pics... Any pics ????
07-20-2005, 08:42 AM
Just got mine about 40 mins ago. Very cool and looks just like what I saw at SDCC>
07-20-2005, 08:45 AM
Can anyone give me the base dimentions? I want to put him between my Morgual Lord and RWoS but I haven't got much room. At the moment I've got the Cave Troll bust between them but his going to move.
Psycho Cenobite :balrog
PS. Any pictures of his clothes would be great! His clothes are one of the main things I like about him. Mainly the clothes around the base.
07-20-2005, 08:52 AM
Getting mine from Adam soon too. Can't wait!!!
07-20-2005, 08:54 AM
Getting mine from Adam soon too. Can't wait!!!
Ditto. Although I may be out of the country when he arrives, and I won't get to see him until about a month from now. :(
07-20-2005, 08:56 AM
I'm getting mine from Mike Richards, very soon I believe.
I cannot wait to see this one!
07-20-2005, 11:25 AM
Great statue, and very well packaged! :clap There are two separate foam protectors that keep King Corpse well sheltered. :skull
07-20-2005, 11:44 AM
Yeah, he is pretty well protected thats for sure. I also like that he is attached to the base.
07-20-2005, 11:45 AM
The base is 11"X 7"; the sword extends another 3-4 inches from the front )a little to the side of the front.
It is very cool...
07-20-2005, 12:14 PM
GOD I SO want this piece to arrive.. but first... i just want some word about it!!! Grrr
07-20-2005, 12:20 PM
Wow! #840 showed up. The "decay" on the face thru me off at first, I thought it was paint chipped off.:lol I too am very surprised there's not more damaged, this is really delicate. Now for a KOTD dance...:banana :ted :yay
07-20-2005, 12:27 PM
07-20-2005, 01:12 PM
Josh, what # did you get? I still havent' gotten mine yet but I should any time today.
07-20-2005, 01:16 PM
I got #822. The decay on the face is very cool WF I agree with ya.
07-20-2005, 01:36 PM
Here's a link to some pictures. I got #47!:eowyn
07-20-2005, 01:39 PM
I was actually a bit surprised that the colors were so vibrant, I thought that they may be a bit more muted. Aside from that, I like mine a lot. :skull
07-20-2005, 01:45 PM
Maybe a tad brighter than you would expect but they are pretty muted. They are pretty inbetween IMO.
07-20-2005, 02:36 PM
Just got mine #803.
There's too many people in the house right now for me to take the time to check it so I'll be doing that later tonight. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!
07-20-2005, 02:56 PM
ya, dont share that wonderful polystone smell with anyone....:drool
07-20-2005, 02:58 PM
I'm sure he is ok Lee. They packed him pretty good to keep any issues from coming up.

07-20-2005, 04:59 PM
ya, dont share that wonderful polystone smell with anyone....
Ain't that right ! Damn , I think Sideshow manufactured some kind of addictive chemical and they spray it on all of their statues .
mmmmmmmm.............must have more !!!!!! :drool :p
07-20-2005, 05:38 PM
I've started looking forward to the smell just as much as getting the statue now.
07-20-2005, 05:42 PM
Yeah, I love that smell. One thing with the bigger pieces you get more of that smell. Bring on Sauron!!! :lol
07-20-2005, 05:43 PM
So that's why I'm addicted!
Mine is #897
07-20-2005, 06:10 PM
Just checked it out really quick and it looked ok. :banana
Man, what a great statue. I wasn't really expecting the white dots on his face (reminds me of acne cream) but overall he is an awesome statue. Definetly in my top 5.
P.S. Everybodies KOTD face does have white spots, right? :|
07-20-2005, 06:36 PM
07-20-2005, 10:53 PM
Just got mine today--he's great!!! And what a wonderful paintjob.
Speaking of dots: mine has three black dots on his left hand--the one holding the sword. Looks like they could be warts of some kind but he only has them on the one hand. Anyone else have this?
correction: I got out the ol' magnifying glass--they are sculpted in.
07-20-2005, 11:16 PM
Mine arrived this afternoon as well.
It's great. Interestingly though, when Eowyn came last week,which I was less gung-ho about I got to have the "wow, that's more than I was expecting" moment. I was expecting a lot here, so it's hard to top that. It's definitely a standout though and I like it more the more I look at it. My only quibble is the overly green tint of the crown. The box shows it more gold which has greater contrast witht the face. Not a biggie though, and it may just be "different" rather than "worse". My favorite paint choice is on the mail skirt (or the male skirt, if you rather). Really cool brown/silver/green wash/patina.
Definitely a winner. :clap
07-21-2005, 01:57 AM
If anyone wants a big face shot I made one last night. Here it is. King of the Dead (http://img141.imageshack.us/img141/7971/bigshot5xu.jpg) And I do mean big 950KB, 1944x2592. You have been warned.
07-21-2005, 07:55 AM
Wow, that was Big.
And my brand new DSL connection downloaded it in a flash!:dance
I was so sick of dialup, and now I'm done with it forever.
:carrot :elef :carrot :elef :carrot
07-21-2005, 08:51 AM
Just got mine....I like it a lot! #2234
The shipping of edition numbers is so strange....Look at how high a number I got...
Great statue though! Kind of big, too!
07-21-2005, 12:05 PM
Just got mine! I like it more than I thought I would.
I met the FedEx guy at the door and noticed he placed the box with the outside arrows pointing towards the ground! The FedEx shipping label was placed on the bottom of the box. My poor KOTD was shipped upside down this whole time.
Nothing broken so I happy. :banana
07-21-2005, 01:10 PM
Congrats you guys! Looks like I am going to be getting mine early to mid next week. As much as I am stoked for all of you... I can't help but be jealous!!!! The extra cost from ordering through SS is practically worth the speedy delivery! Oh well... next week will be here soon enough and then I'll have mine. REALLY looking forward to getting this piece...hell... I'm really looking forward to getting most EVERYTHING else that is shipping! We have some GREAT pieces coming our way!
Bring on Sauron!
07-21-2005, 01:47 PM
Yeah, I went ahead and ordered mine from SS cause of the problems being reported. I just didn't want to trouble Bob or Adam with any issues.
I'm with ya I really look forward to stuff coming in and adding items to the collection. Its like X-Mas everytime something comes in. Also like you said the items we have coming in are really some special things.
07-21-2005, 02:41 PM
Got mine today #986
07-21-2005, 02:55 PM
I see you found out how to post pics, nice work - nice and big too! :google
My only complaint on this one (albeit small) is that the red is a touch too bright, and you can see this when coupled with the Easterling.
07-21-2005, 03:03 PM
How do I make the pic smaller.
I think it was the flash, it looks less bright in person.
I love it though...one of my favorites now!!!
07-21-2005, 03:04 PM
I have the KOTD and mine is pretty bright, but it is a small issue. 8)
07-21-2005, 06:25 PM
Mine arrived safe and undamaged :rock
Cool statue and great pose :gollum
07-21-2005, 08:58 PM
Well I got mine in today, and checked it for any damage that may have resulted during transit...happy to say its all good.
Great looking peice. - It was number 137 from memory.
07-21-2005, 10:31 PM
I was slightly sad that the gold tint did not show up on these production pieces... would have tone down the red a bit as it is evident on the one on display at SDCC... but very nice piece anyhow
07-22-2005, 09:54 AM
Incredible! That pose is just too cool, and great details. That cloak is amazing. Love it!
And since I have no good place to display them, and no poor lighting, the red appears more subdued than everyone elses! When I get me a museum quality display with lighting, THEN I will complain about the red!
