    No contest. Young wins by a knockout. Must have bust for 2015.

    Fantastic likeness, Young. This should do well for you.

    Fabulous likeness of Mr. Crowe's Maximus......even though busts are not my 'thing', I could be tempted by this one:cool:. Would it be seen as an unforgivable sin to give it a bronze type of finish?

    Buy two ,paint one and antique the other " why not " :) or just paint black and do a dust coat of grey over it . Now you need three :)

    Think I will go into my box of despair and do that with some of them :p

    Both are very nice busts but, on the second one the sword handle looks too big!!! Maybe its just the pics. or more likely my eyes!! Dave

    I didnt think we were supposed to hijack other manufacturers posts !!!! Not professional really and very bad taste.

    Youngs version for me ...superb sculpt in all parameters and has a passion and presence of maximus.....just looks the essence of the film character.

    With all due respect, I saw today for the first time this miniature for sale and I was going to buy it.

    But, now please understand: Price makes me wonder if this is this an original, but time makes me also think it is impossible to be a recast. So - what is this:

    [EDIT - it can be a fraud, so no link here - folks. If it is an original, then I will place the link once again]

    If I am being unfair, I express my apologies. If not, I'll communicate this auction to Young and will ask Carl to edit my topic.

    But in the meantime, what is really this sale?!? Honesty or robbery? And please reply because I really want to add this Young's novelty to my grey army.

    With all due respect I would not touch this with a barge pole looks highly suspect to me.......Kevin

    Thank you Kevin. I am suspecting from it too. $27.00? Hum ... but as strange as it seems, it is the price the single thing that makes someone think twice - If it costed $39.99 I would never question this and would be purchasing it now.

    That seems almost obscene how quickly that has been ripped off....He's also selling a lot more of young's busts might be a good idea to lose the link Blue Thunder.......Kevin

    Dammit...where is my jaw ?
    I must have kicked it when it landed.

    This is one of those busts that you don't want to touch until your own skill catches up with it.
    Like that will ever happen.......

    Done guys! It is dubious so, I wiped it. If I am being unfair I'll place it again.

    If that is piracy, it is completely weird to see a recast hitting the stores for sale before the original! So I hope Young can reply me and clarify this.

    Thanks Nuno :)

    The lack of box is ALWAYS a give away, don't go near them.

    Rest tranquil Graham.
    I just hope I was not unfair to some shop owner legitimately selling Young products, but in these days you'll never know. Better wait for Young to say something, otherwise any one of us can be fooled with these products!
