Love and loath this Halcyon kit. Love it for the stunning detail Colin put into it, loath it for the AWFUL pose its in. Out of all the moments he could have chosen for the fella - and there's many iconic one's - he chose the moment he realises the games up and he's about to disintergrate.
Nice and dramatic on paper, looks blummin' awful in a sculpt - you can't see anything at all head-on and, out of context like this, it just looks like he's having a big yawn.
About 10 years ago, i bought one with a view to changing the pose more in keeping with this classic Bolland shot.
Trouble is, didn't have a clue what i was doing - and ended up with this oddity.
Thought i'd have another go, so bought an original quite cheaply of eBay and will be retracing my steps very soon.
