    It does basically match JV artwork and what you said is what I mentioned to someone while at the booth. The pose works I think as a whole.

    I would prefer this to not have the sword. It's hard enough to sculpt flames properly, just seems like overkill with the sword. I always wanted this character, just don't think I can get past all the flames.

    This is an amazing statue! A larger version of a full Balrog statue was sadly missing. And if you check the onering.net video at the 1:28 point where we get an 180 view of the statue, it really looks awesome. Can't wait for this!

    I think we need to see some more angles on this. One thing I did find surprising was how upright it was. I guess I stopped thinking of balrogs as so bipedal.

    The sculpt of the Balrog looks great, but like others I'm not a fan of sculpted fire. I know the flames are needed on the 'rog himself, and actually look really good, but I would have preferred no weapons. I don't care for the sword at all, shouldn't the flames on it be going upward more?

    I know I'm probably one of the few collectors that's honestly happy with the SSW mini-rog. IMO bigger isn't always better when it comes to statues.

    I guess he is swinging the sword so the flames are going in that direction? Also don't forget the nice Gandalf vs Balrog dio, the Balrog in that one was actually bigger than the standalone mini-rog. I can't drop the coin for the daddy-rog so that one is a nice compromise.

    I don't know why they don't cast the flames in a clear resin like material like on the SS Balrog bust. That looks way better.
