    Nice piece and certainly a lot of detail. However, $345 just ain't gonna happen.

    Well I paid about $100 less!


    No, apparently, the DVD's weren't included in time by the distributor (or something), this is something Weta themselve's have posted. They are sending them out now to dealers, and I should get mine soon. Not sure how you got yours, but that is good!

    That would have certainly helped. That piece definitely got my attention and was my favorite of the four.

    Yeah the DVD's are 400 random ones distributed throughout Weta's Superman range. Got my fingers crossed!

    Are they supposed to be flying? It looks so awkward.

    All of them are signed? That sounds unlikely especially considering that you got them a week before everyone else. All the DVD's are signed, however, only 400 are actual sigs, the rest are facsimiles.

    BTW, whoever asked: the DVD is 10-15 minutes long; they're all the same no matter what statue you brought. They talk briefly (2-3 minutes TOPS) about how they made each statue. I was actually VERY disappointed with the DVD. Weta made it sound like it was going to be a full on expose on how each statue was made depending on which statue you bought.

    There are trailers (teaser, domestic 1&2, international) at the end of the DVD, but that's no big whoop since we've seen the movie (me 5 times...tonight will be 6 :)) and the trailers dozens of times. Some of the other concept art, for other statues, were nice thought, but they didn't explore any of that, which would have been really cool actually.

    Statues:
    RS: 10/10
    DP: 15/10
    DA: 15/10

    :D :D

    DVD: 4/10 (at best)

    :(

    Yes, all 4 are signed, has a note on each one saying I won a signed dvd by Bryan Singer, I'll take a pic to prove it, just not now. It's 1 am in the morning and I need my bloody sleep!

    I was just wondering; you don't have to go all out anyways. I really don't care! I absolutely hated (see above) the DVD so having them signed by BS would mean he just stamped his approval on...ugh, well BS. ;)

    Now had the cast signed 400 statues that'd be something I'd get excited about! :)
