    Sure they are the creators, but when the statue looks nothing like the character in the game you gotta wonder...

    The price is also not the issue, that is actually bog standard these days and complaints with the quality based on the store photos is definitely misplaced. The only thing here at fault is the art itself, since that isn't really Jaina's as we've come to know her.

    So people aren't allowed to be critical just because they didn't create it?

    Where are the Range classes for MDI?

    Jaina's eyebrows look weird af. Facial texture also looks cheap, bone structure is different from the in-game model. Too bad as it would have been a nice statue, flaws are too glaring to overlook.

    No, they're not allowed to say "We don't care if you're the one who invented this character, we as the fans get to tell you your creation doesn't look like how we envisioned it being therefore you screwed up."

    Reminds me of the poster BreadIsFunny, whose signature is all about them "assassinating" Alleria Windrunner's personality in Legion. She was a WC2 character with next to no characterization to begin with, so BiS had over a decade to impose his own believes and ideals upon what Alleria was. When her personality was actually fleshed out and was different than his idealized version he'd been headcanoning for the past decade, he blames them.

    If you swap "how we envisioned it" with "how it's represented in 100% of blizzards own media." You'll see what people are talking about.
    It's literally not what the character looks like.

    It's not "how we envisioned it", it is "how Blizzard has shown her to us for the last 20 years.
    Even if the style changes - this is acceptable, it should at least look like the character in game / in cinematics.

    Illidan and Sylvanas didn't suffer this fate, hopefully. Pretty sure Jaina won't sell as well as the other two, for sure I won't be buying it (and God knows i'd buy it if it was neat).

    The one from the chinese thing linked earlier is so much closer to the source material... Too bad that's a 1k$ thing with probably 3 or 400$ duty taxes...

    would love a statue version for people that live with a minimum wage of 600€ and 400€ rent to pay!

    Am I the only one who's actually shocked they're going forward with Blizzcon 2019? After all the layoffs and downsizings that's been happening, I was laying odds that it was next on the chopping block. o_O

    It's a pretty well done model but it really doesn't look like Jaina in the face at all. Kind of looks like a mannequin's face.

    Layoffs and downsizing doesn’t always mean dire straits. Sometimes it’s getting rid of positions that are rendered obsolete by new technology, as well as positions that were once useful but no longer needed.
    Blizzard is still making money.
    My company used to have a specific position they hired for. They don’t do it anymore because another position already does that job as well as additional duties and it was more cost effective and cheaper to just not have those positions anymore.

    Talk about perceived value lmfao. Prime example of wasted money.

  17. #97
    Where are the money from the so called "wow compendium"? They said they would add all the money to the MDI prizepool no? Like dota 2 and lol. Another activision scam i gues.

    I saw a video review about the Sylvanas statue and was shocked when the guy did a close-up and there was a visible chip/unpainted bit near her ear and the guy reported that he accidentally broke a couple of the arrows because they were so fragile. Completely turned me off from future statues from Blizzard.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icwZfAOwaVo can see the unfinished area in near the left ear in the 4:10 mark.
