    Hot Toys got'm right;CM got'm right;Enterbay got'm right.
    Why can't Sideshow in lifesize? In that scale it should be the easiest to get'm right,right? :shrug:

    Sideshow is being battered on both the low- and highend front right now.
    HT and to a smaller extend Enterbay destroyed their 12" efforts and CM is more coherent and predictable on the highend site. Only the PF segment has no direct rivals so far.

    Not wishing to state the obvious, but that is a long wait.

    :shock:
    What?
    And £100 less than FPI?
    I wonder what the frikkin' heck is going on. This was supposed to be a FPI exclusive. Ok, so personally I would not touch Play with a ten foot pole, but still, FPI have got to be a litte bit concerned about this. Play have yet again undercut FPI, and there is no need for a deposit with Play.
    It would seem that, even though FPI have secured "exclusive" rights to import this piece direct from CM, they are powerless to stop Play importng from somewhere else.

    Are you sure? I thought I remember people talking about the need for a Prepayment with Play which turned me off initially.

    There is no mention of it on the site. I don't have an accounr, so can't do a dummy checkout to establish it as fact or not.

    Ok. This has now been removed from the Play.com website. Either FPI did something, or Play got fed up with giving 10-15% discounts to all of their customers who received damaged Predators, that they now feel the line isn't worth the potential hassle.

    To all intents and purposes it would seem like Play's brief flirtation with Cinemaquette is over.

    Hmmm - do you get a poseable minature cat with it? meow.
    The likeness looks good in the small picture in the top right frame, but not so good in the full face version. Having said that, it does seem to have more 'girth' about it than the CM version. The CM version looks a little thin in comparison, although, it does appear 'chunkier' from the side - as shown on the first picture on the first page of this thread.

    Exactly my thoughts!

    Well, with this now up on CM's site for order I would expect to see this in hand within 4-6 weeks in the USA, maybe sooner in Asia. Perhaps over here in the UK within 12 weeks.
    Much, much sooner than I thought. Got the feeling that Bruce Lee will happen now this year as well.
