Glad to hear it... I just don't understand how it can take over a year between showing of a prototype and releasing the finished product... but the again, I'm not in the toy business...

Metallic finishes are a pain in the butt even when they are made as one offs.
Large castings show everything.

I can't imagine the daunting task of QC on this project.

Back in the day I know ceramic companies working for Disney took 14-18 months prior to the product being on shelves.
I helped one company get it done in 9 months for Beauty and the Beast but it was a small miracle.

Still looking forward to this!!! :D

Yeah! It's been well over a year since I pre-ordered it.
My guess is they are having trouble with the head connection, maybe it breaks to easy.
