Hey gregory, can you tell us if the bot head is made of vinyl or resin or some other material?

The bot head looks great. I think it'd look better without the cables and I agree that the price seems a tad cray cray when compared to the $45 Soot Diver...which I know was 2.5 years ago but still.

Made of Vinyl

It's a whole lot bigger than the Soot Diver head

I don't think you can compare this head soley to the soot diver.  Soot diver was more simple.  But if we compare to both the soot diver and the 12" severed bot head that came with the heavy duty loper set then we can probably come to a more balanced price.  So Soot Diver was $45 and the 12" was probably around $235.  So average out the two and you get $140. $170 still a bit pricey, but I'm sure inflation in shipping, tooling, etc. has got to be considered.

From chin to top of the skull it's a little more than 7", with the tubes it ends up being over 9" tall, 6" wide, about 9" depth – give or take a few millimeters

The tubes have some bend to them, but they aren't fully flexible

I'm curious, did Siuyin have anything to do with the shoe/heel design?

She gorgeous, of course, she's Peppermint Grove. Love everything about her: shirt, pants, jacket, patina on the robot hand . . .
But those shoes. I can only hope the unfortunate spasm that inspired them passes, or she also comes with regular sneakers.

Also, if the robot head with tubes etc is 9 inches tall, then this is the 12 inch body . . . I guess it's cheaper than making a
new head for her, but she's a giant compared to the V2 Little Shadows.

Furthermore I agree with Chivo, we need an investigation to find who is responsible for those shoes.

I'm loving everything about this figure. The heels are stupid in a kind of cool way, and the shirts doesn't drape like I think it was supposed to because of the scale, but I think if you manually set the shirt right it's a top notch figure. The bothead is a big, multi part, one time figure so the price seems warranted within 3A's current pricing boundaries. I just got into a minor car accident though so I might have to pass on this one. I'm sure a new dolphin isn't far off, would be great to have the pair too :c.

Nice new sculpt but I still like the big bot heads with the TKs....and again I can't bite on a diorama piece with that price tag. Something about skulls just have that 90s Xtreme Kewl factor to them that just doesn't tickle my fancy.

Those are awesome. I like the Bonsai mountain thing. It would be fun to photograph with some mini figures.

Well I'm all in for this set, come on Sunday. Hope it's just the one colorway, not a blind box variant deal. Wouldn't mind a sketch sale secret drop... so long as I catch it in time.

It's worrying that none of the shots show her bending her knees, not even in this one where it would totally make sense. I wonder if her tights are too skintight to allow it.

I have had the worst luck with blind box variants.
To date I have always received my least favourite colour variations lol

Haha, I am with you: Worst of luck since 2008.
Better colorways always ended up in other peoples collections.
Same with sketches, etc: No luck.

I even received a Night Watch Bramble MK2 so I had to ask Makadi3000 for an Euro.
