Who are you preordering from? If it's Bowen Designs this is the same statue, with the same head & faceplate, as the sales photo on the BD website.

Well, I just went through all of the Extremis threads just in case I missed it, but I can't find (and don't recall) RB actually saying this statue was going to be changed. Some people who got the statue seem to think the original head tilt was reworked, but I can't find any confirmation of that either. What I do see is a lot of people under the impression that the statue was going to be changed, but I'll be darned if I can find any updated photos showing it was actually done.
I think BD does it's best to show accurate pictures of the statue on their sales page. If you have any doubts about what you're buying a simple phone call to BD could probably have saved you a lot of grief. It sounds to me like you "assumed" the statue would be changed even though it wasn't on the order page, so who's not checking their info here?
And the "search" features on forums (and my memory) being what they are, if anyone could post the quote from Randy actually saying the changes would be made I would appreciate them posting it here.

Randy said the mouth was going to be raised and the tilt fixed. I preordered it after he said that, but now after I've seen the pics, I don't think it changed at all. But I'll confirm that when I receive mine.

Thanks for digging that up, but now I'm even more confused. It sure seems from that thread that the faceplate and head tilt were changed and the fan pics appear to show that. If the statue was altered as requested then why are people still complaining? That it wasn't changed enough?

I think it was changed.
I am sure of it.

You have it in hand. So I think you know better.

Not a problem. I just used the search button and it brought up the thread.
From what I'm seeing on that thread and the in hand pics. I think nothing has changed from the initially sneaked proto. But then again, I don't have this in hand yet, so I'll just have to see it for myself when I receive it.

Search features of most forums I've been on are notoriously finicky and you must have entered more specific keywords than I did. Trying to find info by searching the archives always seems to be a real PITA when you really need to find something.
Glad you managed to dig it up.

I've been comparing Averone's pics with the sales picture on the BD website and the sales picture actually seems to still have that head-tilt. In fact the sales picture looks more like the initial sneak than the revision. I wonder if the revisions were made after the statue actually went on sale and BD had to use the un-revised picture because they didn't have any shots of the changes yet. I think Averone is right and it has been changed, but I guess you and I will find out soon enough when our Extremis statues arrive this week.

Edit: Just spent a little more time searching threads. Extremis Iron Man appears to have gone on sale in March, while the "revisions" were still being discussed in April. I'm starting to think that the picture used on BD's website may still the pre-revision one and that's what's causing the confusion.

@TrueFaith: Yes, it was discussed and Bowen decided to change it after it went up for sale.

Oh, and the keyword I used to search was "tilt".

Iron Man fans should not miss out on these. All are very well done.
