So I PO'd 4 statues... problem is i can only afford 3 of them.
Naturally 1 must go... these are the 4:

Silver Surfer Comiquette
X-Force Dio
Gambit PF
Sabretooth PF

I'll leave it to you guys to decide for me:panic:

05-03-2010, 09:40 AM
My vote is to get rid of the Sabretooth PF.

And whatever you do, DO NOT get rid of the Surfer!! I have a good feeling about that one, especially once in-hand pics arrive. It's on my "most anticipated" list this year.

The only one I 've got on order from your list is Gambit. I'd say keep Sabes...I dislike his PJ look but the sculpt is awesome.

X-force dio is w/e for me. Although I like the black/gray costumes the lack of Archangel is a deal breaker.

Lastly is Silver Surfer. I like the character but don't like anything about the comiquette pics shown so far. Plus he's the only non "X" related character on your list (although he'll probably blend in with the rest of your collection)..If I had to I'd get rid of him.

Out of every "choice" thread, this is by far the easiest...

GET RID OF THE X-FORCE DIO

Trust me, it will be on the gift card list soon enough. It is out of scale with the other dioramas, no Archangel, and it just isn't that cool.

If you cancel the EX Sabertooth, you will be considered a major failure and no longer worthy of the any nicknames related to Deadpool. :cuckoo:

I would say cancel the Surfer then...I bought all of the X-Force comics as well until I quit buying comics late last year. Heck, I still have all of my old Liefield New Mutants & X-Force from my Junior High years.

The problem is that the dio just isn't that interesting in my opinion; the group is just...sitting there. It should have been a battle with Bastion, Stryfe, or Selene.

If you have to cancel any of them I'd say to cancel the surfer since you seem partial to mutants and the mutant story line, so the surfer just doesn't fit. That and the fact that alot of people aren't sold on the non chrome look.

Corrose
05-07-2010, 01:46 PM
Before I bought my Iron Spidey, I had a chance to see both the reg and exc. in person, After seeing both I passed on the chance at an in-stock reg, and paid more on the 'bay for an exclusive, it's that much better IMO.

Spidey has so much red and gold as it is, that the white and blue in Cap's shield gives it a good aesthetic balance.

In the case of Iron Spider-Man, it's EX or fail.

???

Not really a gimmick as much as part of the Civil War storyline.

Stark needed some clout on the pro-registration side, and was able to get Parker. Parker had to reveal his identity to the world and so stark gave Pete the best set of armor/costume money could buy to help do his job. That's Stark being Stark. Not to mention, Civil War was handled by Millar/McNiven, no gimick needed to sell comics, these guys are powerhouses in the industry. Millar's talent alone sells itself quite well.

It's all that spandex and cloth. I collect statues not dolls. As the Computerfly conversion of the Spidey PF shows....comiquettes just look better than PF's. PF's should be made of the movie versions of Marvel characters. That is where the format works best IMHO. The Spidey, Hulk, and upcoming Cap and Thor movies would look good as PF's.

Comiquettes look like the characters are lifted right from the comics. The level of detail allowed with Coms can't ever be matched by PF's. They are covered up by the PF's spandex and cloth. There is no way around that fact.

Sure there is. I don't buy PF's so it's not a problem for me. The Mystique PF I own ( the ONLY PF I own) is displayed separately by itself in another room in my house. All of my SS comiquettes scale match up very well and I display them together. The problem PF owners have is they want to mix their PF's with comiquettes. SS obviously has a problem with that. Hence the different scales. This is not an accident. Whether we like it or not, SS wants the formats in 2 different scales.

But Comiquettes aren't even in scale with themselves. All the Iron Man pieces are 1/4. Venom is and Carnage looks to be 1/4.
Magneto is damn near a 1/6 scale figure. The rest are roughly 1/5. It is ____ing stoopid of Sideshow having different scales in the same line.

I only own the EX Wolverine, Iron Man, and Punisher comiquettes. I also own all the AH! X-ladies and the EX Ghost Rider maquette. The scale on Ghost Rider is off compared to the comiquettes. It is however a Maquette, so it's understandable why it doesn't match up with the other comiquettes. The only piece where scale is an issue for my collection is the AH! Mystique comiquette. She is a bit larger than the other AH! pieces and does throw off the scale of the other comiquettes I own. It's not something I lose sleep over.

Overall, I don't see a major issue of scale with the comiquettes I own. If Venom seems 1/4 scale, that's OK. He's a massive SOB to begin with. I don't mind if scale is slightly off on the comiquettes. They look good when I have them displayed together, and that's all I care about. I do however wish SS would pick a scale and stick with it. I agree that it would be best if scale were consistent on all of their pieces regardless of format.
