    Oh man... how the hell do you get a HS hot enough for it to bend, without ruining the paintjob?? Is that even possible?? I used to believe that such a procedure would make it necessary to first remove the paintjob, to keep it from melting and melding with the underlying resin.... But this wouldn't be true, apparently....

Add their new Crown line hair and beard techniques and I think they'd be able to upgrade that original to within shouting distance to Raymond's amazing custom here.
    So right. In spite of all the early support this sculpt enjoyed (Michael Crawford loved it), I didn't like it a bit, already on day one. There is a similar issue with Bilbo: the HS does not ressemble Freeman and the head is way too big. But everyone seems to be happy, and they will be until some eye-opening event comes about (e.g. a new Raymond custom with some actually-well-done, 3rd party HS).

    I also tend to believe many more forum users are critical of Asmus' (and other manufacturers') output, but don't dare to speak their hearts. Many people around here are afraid of freely talking because of violent self-appointed company reps roaming these realms.
    Well: companies don't grow w/o honest feedback, be it positive or negative.

    HT modified head is amazing, and Raimond's figure is lifelike.
