Thanks for the review, Engin.

I really like this piece. I wonder how many modellers will use it as a marble statue in a vignette though

I think thats a great idea!! I personally think it will look so much better as a statue than an actual based figure. I don't warm to it at all.

I've always considered this an odd choice by Romeo.

Paul my friend,
I also hesitate the subject may not be address to many modelers but I check the figure closely and I can say the Medusa head on the breastplate, Sphinx holder of the main crest and the Pegasus designs on the side crests are incredibly good sculpted and cast.
bestest regards

It is a beautiful piece of sculpture, your photos in your review are testament to that.
