    Before I start the actual review of the figure, I would like to say few words.

    Today I spotted the thread regarding reviews done by Guy. I was wondering if that is the good moment to post a new review, and I decided to go for it.
    I spent half of the day for taking pictures and post production. Believe me, it is a hard work and time consuming.

    After all I would like to dedicate this review to Guy and thank you for contributions to the planetFigure and figure modeling. Your reviews are very appreciated and I expect more to come from you.

    Subject of this review is a Pegaso Models 75mm figure of King Richard "The Lionheart". This figure has been sculpted by Andrea Jula and produced in only 125 copies. All copies have received production number. This one is number 14, as you can see later on the box picture.

    Figure has been packed in unsual size of the box for 75mm mounted figures from Pegaso Models. The box is twice as large as a standard one.

    Next five pictures represent what is included in the box. Despite tha parts, we will find Andrea Jula's drawning of the King Richard with a production number in the left down corner, certificate of authenticity, small poster representing pictures of the finished model and a short history debrief about the King Richard "The Lionheart".

    Again, everything fits perfectly. Crisp casting and minimal work will be requaired to put this together. Detail of the figure is really impressive.

    Here I have tried to dryfitted figure and the horse. It was not easy using only blutack. That is a lot of white metal.

    Overall conclusion.
    This is an excellent kit. It is highly detailed. Minimal cleaning required for the assembly. The only con of the kit is that there is only 125 of them.

    This kit was probably the best christmas present I have ever received, mine was number 39.

    The quality is second to none, only has some minor filling to do and it was ready to go.

    Mike I know how you feel, but as well as scared I also cannot wait, and as I now have 2 weeks off uni, I will be starting with the horse today. Wish me luck! haha

    very good revieuw.
    At the time i was at Euro (only sunday) they all are gone. I thought it wasn't going that fast with the price of the piece. How wrong could i be??
    If i see this, i feel very sad that i don't let my clubmembers buy me one.

    Shoei ! Mike I take my hat off, this is gonna be a challenge and a half and of course 1 wants to do the best job to completion, probably also not a cheap production either. Keep, us posted if you get started.

    Thanks for a sterling review and the effort of putting it all together. This really confirms the lucky owners we are.

    Mine is twenty-something or thirty-something. Spent a good two months at sea and made it to my new home not long ago. I doubt I will lay my hands on this god-sent beauty any time soon.
