    Congratulations,

      Looks good Bill, were you not happy with the original, was it too dark? I don't own the PF, but my SS 1:6 feels a bit dark / too charcoal like, no?

        Fantastic pictures Bill, it does look much better!! Did you repaint it yourself?

          Thanks Darkcorner. No I was not happy with the original, it was too plastic looking IMHO and the orange glow just didn't work for me. The SSW original is quite dark, but I'm ok with that. I sure the new Weta 1/6 scale version will be the most accurate version.

          Thanks Levidas. Yeah, I am quite happy with how it turned out. Yes, I did the repaint myself. I'm glad you like it.

              Awesome! Your repaint is a HUGE improvement over the original paint. I never liked that orange effect that they painted on him and he is one impressive statue now. Nicely done.

                Thanks, Ithildin. Yeah, that orange effect just didn't work for me. The armor looked plastic too. I'm quite happy with my repaint but I know the new Weta 1/6 one will blow it out of the water.

                    I think it's the fantastic sculpt that make it look so good Levidas rather than my repaint to be honest.

                      It's fantastic Bill, Amazing skills you have. Yes, the new Weta Sauron looks very impressive with the paint job. Do you have the SS 1:6 as well? Will you end up with 3 Saurons then?
                      I'll bet getting the new Weta Sauron, so considering letting go of SS 1:6, still a bit confused

                        By Sideshow 1/6, do you mean the Sideshow PF which is 1/4, or the Sideshow/Weta 1/6 Sauron? That one was also sculpted by Weta and as i own that one i passed on the new one.

                          Thanks, Darkcorner. Yeah, I do have the SSW Sauron and of course the SS 1/4 PF version too. However, I just couldn't pass on the Weta 1/6 version, so yeah he is ordered. I will he holding onto all 3. They each, in their own way, have a place in my heart and in my collection.

                            Yes FE, I mean the SS Weta 1/6 Sauron, thanks for sharing your decision. I'm contemplating as I liked the paint job better on the latest 1/6 by Weta, with a light up feature along with the probability of an alliance line up so...bit constrained with budget so might need to make some room

                                Yeah, the sculpt was always awesome, it was just the paint that let it down. I'm glad you like it Rlochte.

                                          It sure is awesome, bill. Excellent photos as always.

                                          I have been taking photos with my new camera (Nikon D3300), well it's new to me and I can tell you that it is not easy to get shots like this. But I will keep plodding and learning along the way.
