1/1 scale Spock for sale

For those who might be tired of action figures, there's a 1/1 scale (lifesize) statue of Spock that is now available for preorder. It shows Leonard Nimoy as Spock in his classic TOS outfit. It's for sale for a mere $3000.

http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...il&picture=out

Personally, I think I'll stick to model kits.

For three grand, they should be including the accessories.

Re: 1/1 scale Spock for sale

Facially, he doesn't look quite right for three grand.

The advert warns of sharp parts. The ears, of course.

Re: 1/1 scale Spock for sale

It looks Quinto-ish around the eyes.

And yeah for 3k I want multiple photos with people next to it. Doesn't even tell you what it's made of! Weighs 280lbs.

Well I wouldn't knock it back if anyone wants to buy it for me as a present. Helluva coat rack.

I much prefer my Andorian. In a screen-used costume:

His face doesn't look like Nimoy's at all, at least from that tiny pic.

For that kind of money, I'd rather spend it on a Real Doll, for obvious reasons. Not that I'd ever spend my money on something like that, though

Re: 1/1 scale Spock for sale

As others have already stated - for that kind of cash I'd expect a Madam Tussauds-like resemblance and something pretty spectacular overall, which judging by that crappy pic, this item is not!

For those with really too much money, they could offer a 50/1 "Infinite Vulcan."
