    Sadly, as things stand Halford has a figure and David Lee does not...
    And when I used the word "gay" I meant "lame."

    I think Halford is releasing that the end of his career is nearing. So he is on the look out for other way of making his living. I can understand the economic logic behind that.

    Even if I think that figure is quite silly.

    I think it looks more like UDO than Halford...

    I would only laugh if David Lee Roth had a 'doll' of himself, but I guess I expected a little more class from Halford. It's just my opinion you understand. I've never been a figure collector. :)

    Neither do I. I can't find the appeal to it. I only have two, one of the many versions of Gandalf (as the white wizard) which was a gift and an Iron Maiden (a character from Quake II) which I bought for obvious reasons not precisely related to the game :lol: Both are still in their case in some closet, never cared to display them.

    I checked and all figure faces are bad made. Bodies are nice but faces are very bad, Halford doesn't look like it at all !!

    I dig the idea but as Sixx and Carnut said the face doesn't really look like Rob. I'm a kind of Priest fanboy but no way I would spend 99$ on this...

    99$??!! holy crapper, I thought it would be worth 19.99$ at most.
    It doesn't even look like him, it looks generic.

    If they were gonna make a halford figure they should have at least made the bald halford with the crucible jacket (from the Halford band (crucible album)), and sell it for 14.99$ at most, but making him look like him. Oversized and overpriced.
