Is he gonna come with glasses as an accessory? ;)

Interesting look for Daniel. Not sure what to make of it yet. Better than SOME likenesses I've seen on doll- I mean, action figures. :D

I agree that it looks good from the nose up. The neck is probably wierd because of the joint that lets his head turn, right? I can accept that, but I cannot accept the lack of glasses! He needs them fer cryin' out loud! Also, I can't tell if his eyes are blue from this picture, but I sure hope they are!

Hmmm... to be completely honest, I thought he looked more like an early season Jack than Daniel... :S Perhaps the glasses will make the difference.

I'm not so sure on this one...good job I intend to get the Guards and Aliens not humans, I find human ones such.

Reminds me a bit of Luke Perry. The face just seems a little long. But then, I don't spend a lot of time staring at Daniel, so maybe it's more accurate than I think. LOL! It's a good resemblance as long as you don't look too hard. And as I said, it's a lot better than some I've seen. At least this one doesn't make me wanna cringe. ;)

I don't think it really looks like him... anyone want to photoshop a pair of glasses onto his face to see if he becomes recognizable?

Ok, not too bad, looks nothing like him and no glasses, but it could be worse. Cant think how but I am sure it could :P Does it ascend if you break it? :D

I wanna see some pictures of the Serpent Guard. I hope those are good and I hope we get Jackel and Horus guards.

It comes with a little glowing silly putty filled with helium inside the torso so that if it dies (snaps in two) it ascends. :D

Not too bad. At least there's a resemblence. Can't wait to see the O'Neill figure.

they will probably never do the glasses because they're hard to do on so small a scale. also, i would think that MS doesn't care for them much since daniel wears them as infrequently as possible. And, depending on his contract, he has to approve the figure

Personally I think at this point it's a strictly average-at-best likeness, and on pieces like this likeness is everything. Yes, there's a thread of resemblance there, but right now this definitely needs improvement in my opinion, and hopefully it will have been improved from this early prototype image by the time it hits shelves.

Fact is you should be able to tell exactly who it is just by looking at it, without being told, and even if you only have a casual knowledge of the character/show/actor in question, and right now you can't do that with this piece. In recent years the bar in terms of photorealistic likenesses on pieces like this has been significantly raised (check out Art Asylum's Star Trek figures, certain figures in DST's Buffy & Angel lines, and movie figures by the likes of McFarlane, Neca & Sota), this still has a ways to go to quite reach that level of quality, but it's a start. Hopefully it'll get there though by the time these go into proper production.

It's been my experience that you just have to wait for more pictures. Seeing one picture blown up larger than you would ever see it in real life doesn't translate likenesses easily. So far, so good, but I'm holding out for more pictures.

The small-scale picture with the news blurb on the main page looks like Walter Koenig from the Star Trek "movies" era to me. I don't think it looks like Michael Shanks or James Spader in any way beyond general coloring: Caucasian, brown hair. The larger version of the picture doesn't look like anybody in particular. It's like it's just a generic SG team member.
