So when has it become ok to buy let alone post a recast Item? This is a recast sideshow bust correct?? :confused
Oh god dont start telling me things like that :confused
I got this from what i thought is a reputable seller, knowing nothing about sideshow collectables im now gobsmacked.
Ok thanks for the head's up, im not sure what it is i do now.:confused
There really is nothing "to do" at this point. You unknowingly got burned. If the seller is a member here, we would like to know it because we can't have people recasting Sideshow's pieces.
With that being said, I am going to guess the seller won't take the piece back and refund you so even though it sucks that it is a recast, all you can do is enjoy it for what it is and try to be careful in the future.
Bloody hell sorry to hear that Si, when I saw it the other day not even I clicked on it was a recast. I think the altered position of the head throws it off a little. But still....its amazing how low people will go.
If you look at certain items long enough, things just stand out. Many people on the board can immediately tell you if a Batman Begins cowl is a Dullam sculpt or if an 89 cowl is a reevs. Likewise with Gemini's or masked riders's Iron Man helmets. This one was pretty clearly a Sideshow to me just based on the shape. The OP had more pics earlier that had different angles that give it away better. The eyes are also a signal here, since it's uncommon for the second "eyelid" to be included on a sculpt/cast. This is often added when people put in LEDs. 3D prints are an exception, as is the Sideshow.Sorry to hear you got burned, supa. Good luck with any sort of resolution.
All, i have to ask: Did you know it was a recast by being familiar with the Sideshow product, or was it like people who can spot Photoshops a mile away? I was genuinely fascinated to see so many people jump in on the recast call.
Man, I have much to learn. Today I learned that people can use their molding and casting powers for evil. Boo.
