    Nothing wrong with the sculpt or the paint but, to me it has not captured the man at all. Could be anybody and as such does nothing for me. Sorry

    Christos,

    A very interesting subject to do , always very hard to capture such a well known and influential person ......nice box art , sculpting look good as well .

    A good but unusual addition to your range ..certainly very like the reference picture .

    just wanna clarify,nothing against you Christos ,i just don't admire a coldblooded coward like him.
    He killed many cubans which i happen to know few of their families killed by him.
    Nothing to hold or say as a hero , and people that regard him as a hero i will recommend to go READ a damn book and researcha a little.

    true , the sculpt and paint is great and first class as any of christos job, i just dont idolize a murderer that's all.
    If my post is not of your liking then you go ahead and report it ,but i think everyone should have their own opinions.
    Best regards

    One persons murderer is another's hero. Gen. Sherman isn't real popular is the US southern states, but is a hero in the north. I'm not real fond of Gen Lee, he being a leader of what I consider traitors to the US and defenders of a horrible cause, but he is revered in the south. Same goes for Abe Lincoln, Andrew Jackson, Jefferson Davis etc..etc... but I have no problem with people painting figures of them. I realize they are HISTORICAL whether you agree with them or not.
    I do think everyone pretty much despises Benedict Arnold, though... I have never seen a figure of himo_O
    Just buy it or don't buy it, I've come to realize that no one really cares if you like it or not or why. If you really need to let someone know you are offended by the figure, let the manufacturer know. If its that offensive people will vote with their wallet.
