The armor is some of the best I've ever seen on a figure. It's incredible! I usually stick to Play Arts, Hot Toys and Bandai. But this figure may be too good to pass up...just for that armor alone.

Im curious if Kai Studios is involved since it looks very much like his head sculpt. It looks great but i wonder if the cost is reasonable since its not a licensed product. With the Hot Toys version due out perhaps at the end of the year, Im at a loss if i'm gonna jump on this one. Again perhaps it will all come down to cost. Thoughts opinions?

Btw, anyone knows the website for this company? Curios to know what other products they have. It sure look promising.

this company has no website due to it violating copyright rules becoz it has no license to produce these figures but it does it anyway as long as it doesn't get caught
