    Default Re: Sideshow Rancor statue

    Exactly! And even in the bath he doesn't look glossy!

    Does it really beat the Gentle Giant piece..? I'm not sure it does.
    The New STAR WARS - The ability to tell a good story is insignificant next to the power of an agenda.

    If I didn?t care about scale I?d choose the GG piece. Even if this one looks awesome, I love how the rancor stands in the GG statue. And Mallikili. ...but then again this rancor isn?t really in the scale I?d want anyways.

    The Gentle Giant looks nice but it's only 16" tall and easily a tick or two below this one(at least the proto) in terms of paint. Plus it goes for quite a lot of money nowadays.

    Would you like to share what exactly looks so bad to you? (No offense, I just don't think it looks BAD !)

    And lighting can (and will) make a big difference. When you compare the photos to the movie version it looks different but the environment is also completely different.

    the lack of shading is my biggest issue. second is the lack of "gloss" in the mouth area.

    it looks far too monotone for my tastes...based on that (hopefully) bad pic of course.

    GG did a pretty amazing job on theirs.

    I believe your GG pictures are shot in a total different light environment. Shading is applied by lights right?

    The pictures from SS are clearly more bright so I don't worry there.

    When SS or HT brings a figure which I place in a daylight situation and I compare it with a scene in a dark shot with lighting applied (as can be said for most shots in jabba's palace), I think it is common sense to say the shading will look different.

    The gloss in the mouth is ok for me, but to each his own of course

    I believe this statue will be awesome, and in it's scale alone it will easily make an impression. For the detail and paint job, I don't worry too much at this moment.

    One more reason not to worry yet is the latest Jabba figure from SS. In the proto / preview pictures from SS I didn't like it at all. When the in hand pictures came (including pictures with better lighting) I was convinced to buy it.

    Leaves me to say that calling this paint job bad in capitals, is quite harsh to me (again, no offense everyone has an opinion and that's great for discussion)
