I thought about this for a while and I agree and disagree with you, It does create dead space or make displaying a little awkward if you don't have the proper set up. The thing is if all statues were using the same pose or utilizing the space similarly they wouldn't have a unique look and it would all look uniform and to me thats a bad thing if every guts is the same. I have a magneto statue that is taller and wider then the tentacle ship I chose that one vs a more standard pose because well it looks way more magneto floating over everything. The Gants figure with the sword straight up I bet looks awesome with other statues around it and him doing the thunder cats HO! pose. In the end I stand with you know the dimensions you don't have to get every one and I personally like the diversity.Liad said:Those are totally valid points, but my issue is that in many cases it's just a pointy sword, not a massive sculpt such as Wyald/Zodd. For example, The Kurono Statue has a sword that's maybe 1 cm in diameter (if that), and that alone is 30 cm straight up, so it utilizes space horribly. If they made the pose so that Kurono is preparing for a lunge, you have volume in horizontal lengths, so you can turn the statue to fit better. 20th does this very well, but that single sword alone can stop you from placing maybe 3-4 additional figures, because it creates so much dead space around it.

this is the "luckily" small damage of mine: click
I haven't tried to glue back the piece yet, because I think I will need some putty, it isn't properly a clear-cut break.
Anyway, after AoW asked me for taking pictures of the damage and all the packaging materials used, adding an explanation on what I think would have happened...
their judgment is... no compensation but 5,000 YEN of discount for a next-preorder, because, their words: "it is difficult to judge the exact reason, and we are afraid that it is not easy to get
compensation from Japan Post for this kind of damage"...
yes the way they put it is a bit deceiving, they make you believe there is only 33 piecesZoddit said:wow, a bit pricey...
I think that saying the standard version is limited to 33 pieces could be a little misleading, at least for a newbie... I mean, what you receive is something numbered from 78 to 110...
good to hear, the discount is not a big deal indeed but the important is that they will send you a free brand new Tentacle Ship Statue body.roskus said:Finally, i had aow response for my statue broken.
they give me an other statue (free shipping) and 10% discount for cannon spinning.
