No, that's clearly Destroyed Cassandra, or Laszlo right?

Well, yes, I did order the coatless Jodie figure, and yes, it did arrive.

I doubt anyone's curious enough to want pictures, but... Like the last one it's not as bad in person. About the quality of a 3.75" Star Wars figure but rendered larger. And like the last one, it doesn't look half bad next to the other Doctors, but it looks rather sad next to CO's Thirteen.

I'm not sorry I ordered it, but it's not the crown jewel of my collection, either.
I would like to see pictures, if that would be possible.

OK, so I didn't get them posted by tomorrow. But I finally took some, and I can get them up by Monday.

Has anyone found a better hosting site than imgur?

have you tried Jimgur? It's like imgur, but you're only allowed to post pictures of Jim.

OK, let's see if this works.

As you can see, not nearly up to the standards of CO's Jodie, but if it were my only option, I wouldn't break down crying and beat my fists against the ground.

Still, I'm glad it's not. If Seven20 wants a figure at this, they should start making the monsters CO is ignoring.

it's certainly not awful, I think the face likeness is where the biggest shortcoming is. I do kind of wish we had a coatless CO jodie, though, that's a fun variant.

You know, I dare say TOMFAN would do an absolutely stupendous repaint of that figure.
Perhaps not the face, though. And that’s not to knock his painting skills, because they’re incredible. But you can’t work to paint a lifelike sculpt in a lifelike way if the lifelike sculpt isn’t there in the first place.

Yeah, the face looks more like something out of "Star Wars Rebels" than any attempt at realism. You totally get who it is, but it doesn't look like it's meant to be anything but representational.
