    Broken toad castings are usually well done..in the main seems true here..but don’t quite see the superlatives- pretty ordinary fare really..

    In comparison to many companies casting, and I'm talking big, world known brands, this casting and resin quality on this bust does deserve the praise given.

    I could name multiple companies which are held up as being the best in the world that come in at a lower standard than this does in my honest opinion.

    Sorry- I wasn’t referring to the casting- I know broken toad, use the brushes, and have all of Luke’s pieces- Massive Miniatures- which BT casts..but the subject/sculpt isn’t anything all that unusual..that was my thought..for absolute certain I can also name a bunch of high end brands that slough off terrible quality...

    That's fair. Really depends what a person looks for in a sculpt. If it's historical accuracy then this will likely have no appeal. And personally, variety is a great thing. You can't please everyone and shouldn't even try.

    I try to be constructive and observational as possible. Tricky though.

    Thanks for the review! I backed this Kickstarter too but haven’t received my figures yet. I ordered different ones but the quality shown on this piece has me excited. I wish I could have afforded the whole line!

    I picked up 3. This, Hoggle, and the Goblin. Same wishing I could've gone for more. Just had to be sensible.

    As for you not getting your bits yet, I know they're working through a lot of orders but it's happening.
