She looks familiar but I'm blanking out... Gal Gadot? Not bad, but maybe not the best either -- the expression is just specific enough to either work or get in the way. But it is always nice to have options.

The scalpless profile is definitely Gadot.
Can't believe they didn't offer a version with long, wavy black hair. They already have those with their Asian heads!

GeeWillikers

GeeWillikers
The sculpt itself is nicely crafted, but... I dunno, what is it with these Gal Gadot heads? The face just seems... oversized, somehow, none of those hairstyles look right with it. Her face just seems to loom large out from under the hair. I don't want to sound like I'm picking on her, but it isn't that it's this particular model, either - I've got another, different 'big-faced'  Smile  GG sculpt.


DISCLAIMER: Of course here it could just be a bit of awful photoshopping. If they offered the face part on it's own then I'd happily scout around for some suitable voluminous hair.

Some faces are just really hard to capture in 1/6 scale, I think. Note the gazillions of Polaris sculpts, none of which seem to accurately reflect the actress. ;p

Yeah true, it's hard enough to define what makes a face attractive in the flesh to each individual eye, never mind try and capture it in a sculpt.

this is the best Gal we have had yet IMHO, and that says alot about the others. we will have to see if the in hand is any good. might get one if it's good enough.

There's a beautiful Gal Gadot Wonder Woman sculpt by Sean Dabbs, which is made specifically to accommodate rooted hair being added to it. Though of course that is a custom and not really fair to compare to mass produced ones, but I thought I'd mention as it's prob one of the better sculpts of her that I've encountered, at least.

I agree the face looks oversized with those hairstyles. Maybe the sculptor designed it to be proportioned to the larger HT WW bodies, to be a suitable replacement to the unflattering HT sculpt.

I received the GAC-024C (Anne Hathaway) and the hair scalp came off as it wasn't glued to the head and I had to use adhesive putty.
Not sure its just a fluke but i'm pretty sure you won't have any difficulty prying off the haired scalp from GAC heads.

Looking at the pics again, it looks more and more like badly-proportioned cut'n' paste photoshop - the hairstyles are common to other GAC sculpts, so it seems they just 'shopped the pics of the face onto some other older promo shots they already had lying around, without getting the size ratios exactly right.

That makes this one definitely one to wait for in-hand photos of before buying, I think.

I'm not entirely put off, because I like the actual face itself and I quite like GAC's products usually, so I'll wait and see.

I'm not sure if this is Gal Gadot or lady Gaga

I think I received the same Anne head, and I can confirm that the haired scalp is quite easily removable, I imagine on purpose.

Yeah, I can see Gal there now she's mentioned, but I was stumped at first sight.

There's a seller's own pic of one of these up on Ebay and it looks much better than the promo pic.

Definitely poorly-scaled photoshopping in those promo pics above, if you ask me.

AerynDiana

AerynDiana
Wow, that does look gorgeous. Very real. Great find!

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
Oh wow, that's reallly nice looking in-hand. I'm super tempted, now!

That seller's pics tend to make sculpts look a little washed-out and overly-yellowish if I remember rightly, and GAC sculpts tend to be more on the pink-ish side in the 'flesh', so take that into consideration.

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
Yeah, good point to bear in mind. Though for me, skintone is very rarely an issue since more often than not I tend to be scouting for potential SW alien ladies, so most heads I pick up will end up (drastically) repainted in some way. ;p

The hardest thing for me when it comes to choosing heads for my projects seems to be finding heads that not only have the right face shape for what I want, but that also have at least some slight ‘expression’ to the eyes and mouth that will give them a bit of character. But not *too* specific (or silly) an expression to limit versatility, either. So whenever I see something that has that, it definitely piques my interest.

She does look good, maybe good for a Diana Prince more than a full on WW though.

GORGEOUS!!!
Question now is what hair style best complements the resemblance... B or D?
I wish D's hair was much darker.

GeeWillikers

Here's a couple more in-hand pics where it looks 100 times better than Gac's promo pics, this time from GianToy:

Looks different again, but it's definitely the same model.

rollotomasi

rollotomasi
That's odd... squarer jaws on those pics.
I hope the previous ebay pic you posted is the one we'll be receiving.

GeeWillikers

GeeWillikers
Yes, it's odd how different it looks again, isn't it?

I've had no reason to distrust the ebay seller concerned before, but GianToy are equally (if not more) trustworthy. Although I've noticed that 'elongated' quality to the ebay seller's pics before with other sculpts. GianToy have it listed as in stock at a reasonable price, so I'll probably order one from them soon.

When I'll receive it though is anyone's guess - the UK postal system seems to have gone haywire in the last few months with overseas items taking as much as two months to reach me now where previously it would take two or three weeks at the most. I know what I blame for that, but I won't drag us into the cesspit of UK politics.

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
Both images show a nice sculpt, but yeah, oddly different. Curious to see more in-hand pics for sure.

I’m guessing the elongated effect of the eBay seller has to do with foreshortening. The photo was taken too close to the subject.

It'd be nice to see some in-hand pics of the other hairstyles as those badly-'shopped promo pics are clearly useless, but as it stands I'm probably going to go for Option B.

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
B is my preference, as well. But then I tend to only like factory/synthetic hair when it’s straight — the curly and wavy synthetic hair on 1/6 headsculpts always seems too poofy and out-of-scale to me.

I was on the verge of ordering one from GianToy, but then Chinese holiday and pandemic time hit. Neutral

GeeWillikers

GeeWillikers
I may feel compelled to jump in on this soon despite any qualms whatever the situation - I've noticed that quite a few eBay sellers are doubling their prices on 'accessory' items all of a sudden. Neutral

skywalkersaga

skywalkersaga
Eek, yeah. Seems the 'scarcity' is driving up the prices on a lot of things. I've noticed that almost none of the usual Chinese sellers are showing up in my ebay searches atm. I know it's still technically the New Year holiday, but still.

ETA: Also, I was recently informed by one of the sellers I'd bought a loose Nancy in Hell head from, that the parcel had been 'lost in transit'. They are sending a replacement, but it's rather concerning since I've actually very rarely ever had anything get outright lost when ordering from such sellers. Sometimes taking a loong time, but not usually lost.

Yeah I've only had stuff 'get lost' twice in about five years, but at the moment it's a heightened risk. The other thing putting me off making purchases at the moment is that customs will be all over anything that's coming in from China right now, so not only could it get delayed or 'lost', it's much more likely than usual that we'd get gouged with customs fees too.

I'm pretty sure by now that GianToy have a UK warehouse (or at least a distributor), so once the holiday is over I'll have to ask them whether they've got this sculpt in the UK already or not.

I will, but they might not even own up to having a UK outlet - they don't refer to it on their site at all. The only way I've come to that conclusion is because some of the stuff I've ordered from them has taken less than a week to reach me, and had a UK return address rather than a Chinese one. Smile

skywalkersaga

Ah ok, gotcha. ; )

I've emailed GianToy about the above so I'll spill the beans once I get a reply.

Oddly though, even though it says it's 'in-stock' the B option now has a 'email me once it's available' tag, while the other options don't ... Neutral

It probably has a lot to do with that being the one they chose to promote properly with the in-hand pic.

Well I've heard back from GianToy and 'Amelia' was on the face of it fairly candid - they don't have any stock in the UK or a UK warehouse as such apparently, what they do claim to have is a 'special fast shipping' arrangement with Royal Mail and the UK return address I've seen is actually a kind of RM processing centre that bypasses the slow route. I don't know how that could actually practically work to be honest, but I won't push them on it further. Smile

As for the situation with the Corona virus and/or the New Year celebrations, they hope to be cleared to be back in the store and shipping orders by Feb 10th.  They didn't actually respond to my particular question about this sculpt, frustratingly, but I'll put an order in anyway if they're back up and running after the 10th. Past experience would suggest even if option B is out of stock, they usually re-stock pretty quickly.
