My God! They look like… people!

Is that a good thing? We thought it would be!

It goes against the general practice in a hobby in which most figures have dwarfish characteristics, and is refreshing to see.

We've all got used to vertical anatomical 'compression' as the accepted standard, and I've long since adapted to accepting a certain amount of it. The problem occurs where the distortion is asymmetrical, such as with the common 'stumpy calfs' phenomenon.

Anyway, it's nice to see a figure manufacturer going against the grain and giving hobbyists a realistically proportioned alternative.

Thank you for that. It has been no accident.

I do see a genuine improvement in the standard of sculpting from your earlier releases, especially with weapons, hands and faces; the profile of that figure in green in the top photo just looks so quintessentially Turkish.
