    D-Toys/Creative Toys/reality resin Gunman Bust

    OK, I just got this little gem in the mail today and I just had to share with everyone how wonderful a piece this is. Simply outstanding casting, great fit, perfect sculpting, well packaged and shipped promptly to my door from Lucky Model in Hong Kong......this is a must have.

    Well packaged in a sturdy and attractive cardboard box with a nice sleeve including a color picture of the box art on top. On the inside there's comfy packaging of foam and the small bits were snug in their own little zip-loc bag. Cast in cream colored resin, I literally don't see a single seam line anywhere! Some very small casting blocks will need to be removed, and in the case of this review, I was able to remove some of the small blocks with virtually no effort at all! The lugs added for fitment on each respective piece are perfectly lined-up and snug. The details of the sculpt are simply outstanding, and with casting like this they just shine. Be sure to look at the buttons, 4 small holes! The dry fit of all parts looks spot-on with little or no filling at all needed.

    I hope the pictures speak for themselves. I tried to give an idea of parts, and their fit. This piece just cries out to be painted. I see it hitting my desk very soon!

    Here is a link to the painted box art piece from here on the Planet:

    Even more details. Sorry, I think you can tell I was impressed! Try to ignore my big ball of "Blu-Tac". It was a convenient stand for taking the photos!

    Carl, are you kidding man? I can hardly wait to get paws on that one. I have a couple other projects working now, but I suspect you'll see this one in the coming year from me for sure!

    Just an FYI guys. When LuckyModel lists something as "Available", that means they can get it but its not in stock, and you may have a bit of a wait before you receive it. They are good to deal with and I recommend them 100%. Thanks Jay!

    What's the size of this beauty Jay?/

    Jay,

    Looks like a real nice piece. For realism I'd be sure to seat the Peacemaker a little further into the holster. In the box art it's too high. Otherwise a great bit of sculpting.

    Marc, its 1/10

    A little inspiration. Might need to change the tie to a bolo or bow style though, and add the pipe.
