Nice review, as usual.

Regarding the head sculpt, I can understand why you think the David Duchovny likeness seems to depend on viewing angle - your first portrait shot of Mulder seems to have an Alec Baldwin vibe to it. After taking a quick look at photos of David Duchovny, I think the problem with the Mulder head sculpt is that the eyes are too close together. It could just be the lighting in your shots, but I wonder if the eyes are perhaps a bit too 'sunken' into the head. The too-dark eyebrows might be unintentionally drawing the viewer's eye to the figure's eyes, making issues with them seem more prominent.

As for the paint job on the skin, do you find it's 'lifelike'? Your photos make Mulder's skin seem a tiny bit too 'shiny' to be really lifelike. I recently bought and reviewed Threezero's Major from Ghost in the Shell, and I felt that the figure's biggest weakness was that the paint wasn't lifelike, especially next to a Hot Toys product. I looked at photos from your reviews of Threezero products, and it seems Threezero's paint jobs are inconsistent - some have better painted skin than others.
