Hollywood Collectibles have done a great job in bringing William Birkin to life. It's absolutely huge and weighs a lot. The huge tumorous eye on his right shoulder looks even more menacing than it did in the Resident Evil 2 game.
There is some slight assembly needed with the statue which is to be expected. His smaller left arm and the claws from the huge right arm need to be attached but they easily fit in place and are held there by magnets and obviously you need to put the statue on it's base.
That brings me to the only real negatives about this statue, the base doesn't seem thick enough for a statue of this size. The pegs that go into the base seem a few millimeters too long for it, which can cause the statue to move a little. I've remedied this by wedging some small pieces of card under the feet which has pretty much all but stopped any movement and you can't even see the pieces of card unless you know to look for them.
Also, the base is incredibly bland, after seeing the base for the Tyrant statue by Hollywood Collectibles it was a shame to see that they hadn't put a similar kind of design into this one, however, the statue itself is so well done that it doesn't really matter too much.
Despite the negatives I've mentioned, I'm still giving this statue 5 stars because I find the statue itself to be so impressive.
A small note, or big depending on the collector, this is listed as the Exclusive version of the statue with the print, however, it isn't. You don't get the exclusive print and it is still numbered out of 750 but this is 365 Games issue and not a fault of the product. I did notify 365 Games of this issue and they informed me they plan to change the listing of this item.
