    I think below the nose it looks really good. Something off about the eyes. Maybe too close together. Forehead seems to be a little high as well. From what I see of the clothes they look really good.

    Forehead is way too large. Hairline is too far back. Overall the likeness isn't there.

    Hairline and forehead are the biggest concerns. The eyes may need some work. But those crits aside this already appears to be shaping up to be the best Aragorn figure to date.

    Good thing everyone pointed out the forehead, I almost missed it.

    Agree with the two previous posts. Forehead is too high, eyes are too close, and also the nose lack of character. Under the nose it seems good, and the paint app for the beard looks great. Maybe take an example with this sculpt:

    On this sculpt, hair, forehead and nose are just excellent. Anyway take some more time to perfect your work, I don't mind waiting a few months more until the product likeness is ok, and I think I am not the only one. Good luck!

    Pretty much sums it up. Can't wait for the whole figure reveal and some timeline for when he might arrive in hand.

    I was looking forward to this release but the likeness is off imo,
    The face looks very squashed with smalle eyes and the forehead looks far to prominent, at the moment I would say the SS sculpt with a repaint is far superior

    I'd love to see a side view of the sculpt too. I think Viggo is one of the harder likenesses to match. We have had plenty of attempts ranging from ToyBiz, NECA, WETA, Sideshow, customs and now Asmus. Some have had better likenesses than others but none have been spot on. I think Sideshows PF and 1/6 statue have been the closest to nail it. Overall I'd love to see it tweaked a little bit but this does show great promise of things to come. I always said the real test for Asmus and this line would be when they sculpt the human characters where likeness will be crucial. This is a valiant first step and makes me excited to see how other sculpts turn out.

    Same for me on the sculpt. Lower hair line, maybe a few small touch ups.
