Now thats what I call proper blood effects! Why didnt they just do this the first time? The pose is still pretty boring and cheesy and it would look kinda silly next to the latest Skullknight with pretty much the same pose. Still, cant decide with this one!!!

Glad they waited awhile before releasing this one.  Good to see they're changing the way they do business

AOW are fucking disrespectful! This new version is clearly better and i can't have mine repaint like this because it's dead angel version...

so shameless. EA should give their Worst Company gold crown to AoW.

Agreed with all of you.  I tried asking for a swap as well but because they've already started on production of the dead angel version they can't make ours like the new one...  Sounds like a bunch of crap to me.

I'm sorry for my ignorance, but what exactly happened? I haven't purchased any AOW statues but did they not refund people for a shoddy paint job or something? Just curious. :)

They all ordered this version: http://www.art-of-war.co.jp/english/items/detail.php?gid=520
The paintjob is fine, but they prefer (or some do) this new version.

And I have to agree, this bloody version looks better.

What Legato said.

The second release (Blood Version) has a different color for the skin tone, the blood effect + color of the armor and overall statue is pretty good, possible face change - everything better than the original version with the dead angel attachment. Kicker is, people bought the dead angel version because at the time of it's release, AOW put out 2 statues - one with the dead angel and one without. So that should've been it, technically. Now a third version comes out that looks better than those two statues that are still in production and will be released/ shipped in August/ September.

Did AOW refund buyers for statues (serial no) 322 and 323?

Probably not, AoW doesn't give out refunds once you have paid the full amount. Though there could be an exeption here, dunno.

exceptions depends on whether you are a VIP customer or not and by VIP I don't mean premium cuz most of us are.

Yeah, I'm not in the know of a refund on these run of statues. Was inquiring because tama chan suggested it happened. Don't we get all worked up because there's no new episode of Game Of Thrones this weekend?! #kidding# :farnese:

I think I must have gotten the same response as Direct did when I contacted AoW about repainting the dead angel version.  I'd be willing to bet that anyone who contacted them was told that production had begun a week ago regardless of when you inquired.  I'm pretty bummed about the whole thing.

And about Game of Thrones, I think this season was quite disappointing actually, there wasn't enough room for some thing, but the pacing still felt slow at times.
Very much looking forward to the next season though, they could still make up for this.

Well shot, beautiful pictures man! Thank you very much. I decided forgo this purchase because of the overall pose, price point and scale but these pictures bring the statue to such life and *sigh* I feel like if I see this on YJA or Ebay in a few months, I may have to pick this one up after all.
