This is supposed to be the rarest and the most expensive statue in the whole set. I never expect that I would be able to get this so I could not believe it when it came up on eBay a few weeks ago. And I am extremely glad that I am able to own this!! Yiihaa!! The price is quite crazy (USD 1225 excluding shipping) considering that the box was somewhat damaged. Most likely it is because the auction is not restricted to US address only and hence the whole world can bid for it. Anyway, don't care! At least I don't need to constantly checking internet to find this. And another pleasant surprise is that this is somehow able to avoid taxes. That is a miracle.
The box is about 37 cm (L) x 23 cm (W) x 44 cm (H) and the statue is about 13 inches tall. The serial number is 215. Leviathan is awesome! I am impressed with the details of the skin (more like the scales) as well as the fangs which are very realistic. Unlike Odin which is barely recognisable, Leviathan's face is also gorgeous (although it can still be better if the eyes are somewhat more obvious).
The humans, unfortunately, are atrocious. I think it is a problem with the sculptor as Rinoa (who is also sculpted by him) is equally atrocious. Selphie's and Quistis' faces are ugly and they do not look "alive" like Seifer. BIG disappointment as I like people more than monsters (and Quistis is my favourite character T_T). The overall "feel" of the statue is also somewhat weird. Quistis is smiling while Selphie seems hurt after a battle (where is the other half of her nunchunks? why is her shirt damaged?).
Enough of words and it's pictures time!! Enjoy :D
