For dolls with such stylized proportions, they have surprisingly realistic faces - this guy's furrowed brow is almost a work of art on its own - and very detailed hands. The sculpting of the veins and nails is stunning - in certain lighting they look blushed even though mine is actually blank.
My version is from the tan run of late 2010, and his colour is lovely. He's a solid deep brown colour (similar to my 2007 Iplehouse Dk Aaron), without any of the colour variations that some darker resins can be prone too. He has also maintained his tone for the 3.5 years that I've had him.
If I have any complaint about this doll, it's that he's almost too poseable. The unusual chest joint allows him to be positioned into all kinds of ultra-natural positions that are impossible for dolls with a standard chest, but it also causes him to default into a slouch, which isn't always what I'm looking for.

Still, they're fabulous dolls, and this guy in particular has a fantastic sculpt.
