I got Bloodshot, and would love to have a Rai. Did I mention the association for the loft building I live in just dropped an $8000 special assessment on us? .... so yeah, fun money needs to be focused elsewhere for a bit.

I haven't heard a number, and unlike the Bloodshots they are not numbered (at least that I can find). :(

I've never owned a statue, but would probably pull the trigger on an X-O.

Where is the best place to buy the Rai statue? I still see confusion all over the place regarding the release date. Some sites still say it isn't available, while others say they have stock.

I'm about ready to pull the trigger, but I'm curious where others have purchased.

I got mine at my LCS for a good price. If you buy one, factor in shipping and potential for damage; the box is huge.

FFS I wish these statues were the same height. The Rai statue towers over the bloodshot statue. Prices are all over the place for these things as well. I see one on eBay for $300 with free shipping, while midtown is $415.99 plus shipping.

The only reason I didn't pick one up is because of the different sizes between the statues, smaller also probably would have equaled less expensive as well.

I ended up picking one up from a seller on ebay. We had an email conversation about the statue, the different shipping dates, etc. He was also the best price. His shop is getting them on the 27th of February and he'll ship NLT 14 March.

In regards to size, couldn't VEI set standards on statue sizing before authorizing the use of the IP? I think the bloodshot statue is the perfect size. The Rai statue will just fit between the shelves in my display case, but now the three statues I have (Solar, Bloodshot, and Rai) will all be different sizes.

Same.



I have a few statues. Most in boxes, just thought if I brought the Rai or Bloodshot ~ it would stay in a box.

If that XO came out ~ it would be ON the SHELF. Just love the movement.
I was going to commission a statue ~ of a cover I like.

Wasn't the Bloodshot a 300 run production? Mine is 273/300.

Same here. While I like the Bloodshot and Rai statues, they are pretty placid compared to the original X-O concept we saw.
