    I get where you're coming from, but that face is too far off the mark for a high-end $350 product. If it was something cheaper then it'd get more slack, but not for 350.

    Artist Credits:

    Ehren Bienert (Sculpt)
    Laurel Austin (Paint)
    Special thanks - Glenn Rane, Chris Robinson, Ely Cannon
    Marco Sipriaso (Graphic Design)
    Blizzard Consumer Products
    Blizzard Animation
    World of Warcraft Development Team

    Note: Each statue is hand painted, there may be a slight variance in the final production piece.

    Ehren Bienert might have some better works out there, this one was a miss though.

    Edit: Here's his/her artstation, seems to be employed in-house

    https://www.artstation.com/ehren

    https://www.artstation.com/artwork/6ga25

    Dva statue turned out great, the face made this one a miss though. Ehren was probably focused on a certain emotion from Jaina when making the face, like making her unwavering/confident, but as someone who buys a lot of statues, I prefer a recognizable face. Just my two cents. Not saying your opinion is invalid or anything. I know it sucks to make something as an artist and then see it trashed, but I do think Blizzard should have told her to change it internally before the final product (since she's in-house)

    if it was amateur fanart, id say it was pretty good. but this is in the official blizzard store and cost 350 bucks, it should be perfect and look exactly like jaina for that kinda money.

    Throughout the history of Warcraft, every time they depict Jaina they give her a completely different face. Like WTF?
    She has 5 now.

    What they should of done is use the 3D model data from the game and from various cutscenes to get a better likeness of Jaina..

    That Jaina face lol.

    This is pretty much what I have come to expect from the "Blizzard quality".

    Lmao, now we can't criticize the statue because we are not artists! "bUt CaN yOU dO BEtTer?"

    Right, we cannot criticize movies, music, games, books, unless we can do better! Gtfo with that ridiculous logic.

    I like how they talked down to people criticising the statue then went on to criticise it themself.

    As far as I know Blizzard is a mobile game developer company for the chinese market... so it would make sense.

    That is just an idiotic statement and a logical fallacy. You don't need to be able to do something else to find the fault with someone elses work. If that was a valid argument for anything in life every professional would be absolved of any kind of responsibility. "What the bridge you drove over that I constructed collapsed under your ass? Pff, can you do it better?".

    That definitely does look better. I like the Illidan and Sylvanas statues, this one is just too far off from what I know in game. Apart from the fact that I rather spend 350 dollars elsewhere

    What most likely happened.

    That was what the planned. People complained. Someone most likely with a well-written review of why it should last longer. They changed their stance on it.

    I just find it hilarious how a £105 figure can look better than a $350 statue. And that's not even the best looking Play Arts Kai figure there is on that store imo.
