I like what I see so far. It's amazing to see all these "smaller" manufacturers coming out with these highly detailed figures, it's nice to have so many options out there in the 1:6th world you know what I'm saying. So much these days is Hot Toys Hot Toys Hot Toys that we seem to sometimes over look the fact the other companies are putting out great product that is NOT just a great head sculpt but a great figure all around. Plus there price point is attractive!

Great points George :) Hot Toys may be up there with their movie masterpieces and increasingly HIGH prices but there're also the smaller players with equally attractive products at much more affordable price range so we all don't have to pander to Hot Toys for our fix ;p
