    I don't buy "collectibles", but there are some magnificent pieces out there.

    This one isn't one of them.

    And it's a damned shame, for such an iconic character. The pose is is just as bad as the face. The hooded pose from warbringinger would have been gorgeous. This looks like a generic mobile game female caster pose, like they took 3D clip art and morphed Jaina stuff onto it - and forgot the face.

    Seems to be a theme with Blizzard these days - build you up with hype...and then let you down in a soulkilling manner.

    The statue would look better if they HAD outsourced it to some Japanese company to make it. They pump out hundreds of high quality figures every year.

    This is no a Jaina statue. This is a statue of someone wearing Jaina's clothes. And it is not a cosplayer either because they do better job with makeup to resemble the character. This face has different jaw line, mouth, eyebrows, eyes and nose. Aka all the main features of a face. Jaina doesn't even wear lipstick.

    Incredibly disappointed because if this looked like Jaina at least a bit, I would buy it. She is my favorite character.

    Seriously, an editor validated her face ? I mean, com'on, it's beautiful, but that's not Jaina, simply as that.

    If you were to read the announcement, you would notice that they speak of extending it beyond its original deadline after considering feedback and evaluating the current azerite levels in the community. So it was scheduled to end this week, and then they decided to extend it. How is that so confusing?

    that was on our end, we knew it was ending based on code in the game it was set to end this week for along time, but entering this week they noticed alot of people are still under leveled and are going to keep increasing it
    blizzard then today said "oh yeah its going to continue" as they are going to add morte levels

    i just hit 47 with no like "days of doing islands" so im all fine 1 more level then ive got all my traits

    Ok, thanks, but no idea what announcement you read, it's not that which is quoted in the news.

    350 dollars for that.... Or I can get actual expertly crafted figures for 1/3 of the price. Or statues....

    That statue is not an expertly crafted one.

    I could buy 3-7 Play Arts Kai figures for the cost of this single statue alone. And the Batman ones are pretty damn good.

    it looks kinda awesome but her face doesnt look like jaina AT ALL.

  14. #34
    Holy fuck, that's ONE UGLY ASS STATUE OF "JANIA" It look like someone is in her clothes... What the fuck is this? Nothing's like jania..... 350 dollars for that? I could get better deal large pounds of weed over this. Just no, maybe 3.50 dollars for that statue and throw in trash when it arrive in my mail.

    Did anybody at Blizzard look at the face on that Jaina statue? Anybody who was familiar with Jaina anyway. It would be an awesome statue if it looked like Jaina. Unfortunately, it doesn't.

    It's not a bad statue it's just not Jaina

  17. #37
    Jaina's face. What the hell Blizzard?

  18. #38
    How did that statue get passed QA?

    oh, wait..

    I mean it is in line with Jaina and Sylvanas in the other media of Blizzard lately. Each artist just artsies his own version, no matter how different. Why should a statue be diffrent, this ones arist just used brigitte nielsen as a model. He/she was probably scared disney would sue their ass if they kept cloning elsa.

    Always easy to be the critic and say that sucks but not so easy to be the artist. To the people who are saying the statue looks like crap, can you honestly do better? Why not show your statues if you think you can do better?

    That said, I can't say I'm a fan of the statue myself. The hair looks like they brushed yellow (blonde) over a white base coat making it look splotchy. The face is also off significantly. The Sylvanas one wasn't too accurate, either, but it eventually made it into cinematics so it had use. This Jaina statue is not what we see even in cinematics. I was going to preorder it after seeing it showcased at Blizzcon, but now I think I'll pass. I own the Sylvanas statue and was impressed by the quality, but not so much this one. I'm hoping for a Varian or an Anduin statue, but I'm hoping they'll be better than this one. Likely won't see one for another 2-4 years, though. A horde statue will likely be next.
