    Meanwhile the Harryhausen name falls away, which upsets me more than the $400 retail price. I'd love to continue collecting this toy line that Beagle/PiliotAce started but it gets a bit hard to do. The sculpt is great and matches well with the 3 previous toys.

    I almost missed it was a HS toy, his logo was so damn small on the header. Fortunately it's my least favorite of the 4 and I'm ok to never own one. I pulled pictures from Mandarake of one that sold for a cool grand.

    I can honestly say I don’t really like anything about it, aside from the colors. It falls pretty short of matching the visual stature of the three Pilot Ace sculpts, which have so much life and menace to them, and this centaur is so stiff and lifeless. The Cyclops, Ymir and Dragon all carry stance and personality; strong likeness to the source. The centaur lacks the form detail and “oomf” factor I feel the aforementioned have. Has a Playskool horsy vibe.

    A good customer? Or just a wealthy one?

    I love seeing when Hirota shares something new, but the suck-up comments and posts from followers are just nauseating.
