Ken the Eagle 1/4 scale statue by Prime 1 Studio Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator        IP Information Go to the top of this page

Hey. Gatchapeeps! I don't know if anyone has posted this already and my apologies if it has already been brought to your attention. Also, he's probably going to be stupid expensive.

From NerdReverse's Instagram Account (There are multiple photos!) -

Prime Studios Instagram account in case anyone feels like watching their announcements like a hawk. For reasons. -

And Prime 1 Studio's website. He isn't on there yet, but ya know, for comparison. -
https://www.prime1studio.com/scale/1-4-scale.html

The face is ehhhhhh close, but those eyebrows seem a bit too thin. I don't know why everyone makes Ken's eyebrows too thin. (I am finicky little twerp when it comes to the portrayal of my ninja birds)...BUT, he is still pretty and wow that is a nice sculpt/paint/nifty costume design that I don't hate. I WANT THEM TO MAKE A JOE. And then I can whine about how expensive he is and also debate being a totally irresponsible adult and buying one anyway because I am a grown woman who can buy dumb stuff if she wants to and ain't no one gonna stop me. (Except my bank account.)

If they plan on making the whole team...I might be in trouble.

Gimme a minute, I need to get my jaw off the floor...

That's an impressive piece of work! ...And now I'm feeling bummed out 'cause I already know I won't be able to afford it even if I didn't eat or pay rent for a couple of months.

Dammit dammit dammit! Protest

I am wincing at that price tag. I mean. Yowza. Their statues are crazy expensive...But. Sooooooo good.

I'm still losing my mind over the fact that his base is part of a destroyed Galactor mecha and there is an actual Galactor helmet hanging off it. Eeeeeeeeee wantwantwanwant. Can'taffordcan'taffordcan'tafford. Maybe I can start a separate money stash via art sales for "useless overly expensive paperweights that look very pretty".

*pouts*

Hi all,

It looks very nice. I like the modern takes on the suit materials. They add some interesting realism. I like the amount of fine detail in the statue and I think most of it works quite well. I agree the face isn't exactly Ken, but it's decent. The base is pretty cool with the destroyed machinery and Galactor soldier helmet. Nice touches!

However, they did all that work on it, and one thing immediately stuck out... where's his bracelet? Maybe it's there but not painted? It was a little difficult to tell. Either missing or unpainted, hopefully this is just a prototype and that will be corrected on the final.

Thanks for sharing about it!

I just caught the missing bracelet!!! (after ogling it for the 500th time XD) Kind of an important detail there. This is a first reveal so here's to hoping they take a second pass at the prototype before manufacturing. Also, if we're gonna nitpick...that feather cape is the wrong shape. It should be partially split up the back, long on the outside and short on the inside, like wings! (I remember counting feather separations and most of the reference screen shots I use show seven on each wing. I can't help myself on this stuff either). I'm just happy it's hinted that he has long hair. I am so sick of redesigns sheering the Eagle's mane.

Imperfections aside, I still want one. Tongue

Wow.
Drool2

Some very nice detail there! (And some mistakes as already stated)

I need a better paying job.

I love that. Like Jason said, little tweaks to the uniform that I really like. I missed the missing bracelet. I was too busy looking at other parts.

Like GC, I'd love to see the Joe version.

Wow!! The artwork is beautiful, and I love his base. I'm in love all over again...
Sculpting is difficult to do, from experience here. I had some lessons from a top artist in sculpting heads out of clay and creating facial features, ready for mold making for resins or other mediums.
I admire anyone who gets it close. His torso... oh my...oh my...

His brows and bracelet are fixable with some paint, a brush... Just sayin... Wink
