From John of KaijuAddicts.com and Toy Addicts:
The first point I'd like to make about this figurine is the quality of the material. Usually, when a non-human character is made into a 1/6 scale figure it's done with plastic. Well, the Big Chief Studios Weeping Angel figurine is not plastic; it's polystone. And not only that: it's SOLID polystone. These things have quite a bit of heft to them.
Now you might think that a figure of this kind may not be as fun to pose, if that's even possible. Well, it is possible. The Big Chief Studio Weeping Angel comes with alternate pieces. There are three sets of arms which can be removed and interchanged. You could use the "weeping" arms which cover the face, or a set of outstretched arms, or yet another, more fearsome set of coming-to-get-you arms. There are also two heads: a standard statue face and the evil, pointy-toothed face.
But it doesn't end there. Each wing can be removed to revealed a special "joint" which can be reconnected at a different angle for wings that fall straight down, or flare out an angles. The Weeping Angel comes with a faux, grassy base from which it can be removed.
The beauty of this item is that you don't need to be a 1:6 Scale figure collector to appreaciate and own one. You just need to be a Doctor Who fan who has proper respect for Steven Moffat's masterpiece Doctor Who episode "Blink".
Well, I am both a Doctor Who fan and 1:6 Scale collector and I can't express enough how excited I am for this piece. And I'm not just saying that because I'm selling them. It's the other way around. I'm selling them because they're awesome!
Consider adding this delightfully creepy Doctor Who character to your collection. But don't take too long. Once they sell out... that's it. They're gone. The prices on Big Chief Studios 1:6 scale figures usually rise to ridiculous aftermarket prices on Ebay, etc. So think carefully and quick. And don't blink!
