    Well there is certainly no mistake who that is ".prefer the plain face without the blue but either way the box art is great

    Looking forward to seeing this up close

    Thanks for sharing

    great new bust from NutsPlanet, I would prefer a painted blue/white face as this make the whole piece more colourful. The sculpt looks great, I will certainly give it a go .

    Pretty awesome sculpt and fantastic painting of the box art.

    I think that's Mel Gibson dressed up as Wallace.

    While its a great sculpt with great painting (I love the textures on the leather and cloth) to my eye, he doesn't look much like Mel Gibson, and of course nothing like the historical William Wallace. Still a beautiful figure.

    The painting to replicate worn leather is simply incredible.

    Agree with the comments. It's not Mel Gibson and it's not the historical character, too bad.

    Another quality offering from the talented team at Nuts Planet, but sadly for me, this one misses the mark. As good as the sculpting and painting is, it just doesn't look like Mel Gibson in "Braveheart".

    To be specific, the shape of the eyes appears to be too straight, the cheeks seem too full and the point of the chin doesn't seem to be sharp enough.

    I'm no sculptor and I'm not making a negative comment just for the sake of it, but I know that Nuts Planet are premium busts and sell for a premium price. If I'm going to purchase a Nuts Planet bust (which I have done at least nine times before) I want it to be perfect. Sadly, as I say, this one misses the mark for me and I wont be buying it.

    Incredibe!!!!!!! The likeness is staggeringly accurate, can't wait to see some painted version appearing here :)

    I've just noticed the unpainted and unprimed master of this bust on Facebook which was posted by the sculptor, Jun-Sik Ahn.

    This looks much closer in likeness to Mel Gibson that the painted box art version.

    I might have to rethink my position on this new release.

    Neither William Wallace......

    Nor Mel Gibson in my book

    Certainly great sculpt and painting tho (y)

    In a documentary about Wallace, the writer of Braveheart said "I didn't want the facts to obscure the essential truth of the story" o_O. Not my favourite film :ROFLMAO:.
    Beautiful sculpting and painting though(y)(y)

    As with all Nuts Planet work the sculpting is superb.
    My issue with it is it's clearly fantasy as was the films manipulation of historical fact.
    By all means call it Mel Gibson as Braveheart but not William Wallace.
    Nuts Planet quality is second to none and in my humble opinion has gone quite some way in raising the quality bar. The sculpting and the painting of this bust is nothing less than world class(y)

    There are no verifiable images of William Wallace we can't even agree as to where he was born, with candidates from as far north as Aberdeenshire to as far south as Galloway.
    Whilst any face will do including Gibsons, what should be possible is getting the dress right. Wallace being of minor nobility would have worn very decent armour etc, better than a well appointed man at arms but not as good as that of the Lords of Scotland.
    By the time he became Guardian he would be wearing high quality armour.
    What has to be remembered is that by the 13th century Scotland had healthy trade arrangements with continental europe (sound familiar??????;))
    this will have included a healthy trade in arms and armour.
    Along with Andrew Murray, Wallace signed the Lubeck letter to the mayors of Lubeck and Hamburg aimed at building trade relationships.
    Sorry guys I digress........away to paint my face blue and head down to the shops to buy some german beer, italian pasta and french cheese.

    Reminds me of the old Kirin bust ,but a leap forward in sculpting.

    I think it's a very nice bit of sculpture that I would never buy, as it relates to nothing of any worth.
    Neither the Film , the supposed Portrayal of history, nor the man.
    It's a shame really, the sculpting really is first class,
    just an unworthy choice of subject.

    I agree with what Paul has said above. Being an oldy I painted the Kirin version sculpted by Mike Good a good few years back.

    Personally I'd like to see the GoT range added to, or another historical piece.
