They are a good seller. I hesitated when they first released this figure then jumped on the second batch because of the good experience others posted here.
 
Thanks! I went ahead and ordered one. I thought it had become a lost cause but I'm happy to see they got a new batch
 
I found this figure fantastic. More people should order this fantastic figure. Cannot beat that price for plastic.
 
Damn did that sell out fast.

I enjoy it. It can’t pose very well but it does have presence and is a much better value then any Sauron out right now.
 
This bad boy arrived after the total eclipse.

That is for sure one cool-looking Dark Lord, but have you modded the eyes? They look as if you had put LEDs in them.

My main gripe w/ this figure: ridicule torso vs hips. All statues of Sauron from the past have bulkier torsos, at least as thick as the hips, and that looks good. But not this.... Do you owners think it should/can be fixed? Have you?

Thx.
 
I sold mine off, Gonna wait for InArt to do 1/6 Sauron. I don't like the visible elbow joints and the overall proportion of the figure seems a bit off.

Fair points. He is wide at the hips.

I don’t think inart will do a Sauron for years though if ever. The only accurate Sauron in 1/6 are weta statues and the last one released at $999 and resells for $1400
 
I placed red gemstones into the eye socket with double sided tape. I also cut leather material to hide the arm joints and hip joints above the leg armour.

I don't think either.
Those statues are on point, yes. But do you guys think the hips problem can be solved by somehow changing the shape of the torso armour and modding the underlying body's hips to match the look of the statues?

Nice touches.
But are those joints really visible? What is the problem? Can't you tweak the armour to hide them?
Thx.

Doubt inArt will ever make one. Just looking at their line ups per license and time of release per figure. Asmus has a bigger chance of making one but even for them, they had the LOTR license for a long time yet they still haven't released a single sauron.


I don't mind the joints at all I mean its is an action figure after all and I have other figures with visible joints. For the price I paid ($210) I just can't go wrong with this one I just treat it like a 1/4 neca figure.

I have faith that a better 1/6 Sauron will come someday, whether it'd be from Asmus or InArt or some other 3rd party company.
