thank you very much ... it's one of my personal favorites!
Amazing job, so many layers of detail and what looks to be every technique possible all working together.  I'm definitely going to use this for reference if I ever pick one up, there's no way I can even look at the pre-painted one now.  Congrats!

thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful comments. If you ever do get one and want to talk about painting techniques, just shoot me a note

One of my favourites sculptures ever!! Do you know where can I get one??
sivousplay's avatar
Mine too ... sculpted by the amazing hands of Takayuki Takeya ... it was sold as a kit as well as a pre-paint statue by Fewture more than a decade ago. Now, ebay, yahoo japan, or a hobbyist forums are about your only way to find one. Best of luck!

Right, now it's a collectionist piece, it must be expensive...Thanks for the info! ;)

To give you some idea, I have seen the unbuilt, unpainted kit sell for $200-$300 USD

One usually shows up on ebay every 6 months or so ... I'd put a watch on ebay for Alien Pile and wait

Now it's available...but too expensive ;)
