    Looks like we're only getting Quint now, the Scheider estate isn't having it.

    Thatís too bad. I would have loved both, but at least Quint is my top choice.

    I was sad to see the figure get pulled out. He was so very well done. What a likeness! Having that figure would have been paying homage to a great actor in a great movie.
    Heart of Glass was my secret identity.

    I will never understand why estates do things like this. If it was something grossly out of synch with the movie or his performance, sure. But this is him in figure form. What's the problem?

    They may not have been getting enough of a piece of a pie. And I get that "some money" is better than "no money" but maybe they originally agreed to a percentage but have found out that it's going to be smaller than they thought, or that NECA was set to make more money than they thought?

    Certainly possible and if they value the likeness, perhaps they think something better will come along.

    Exactly. Not to mention, the character Brody is more recognizable to younger generations than Roy's own name as an actor. Roy would be almost 90 years old if he were still living and you'd think now would be as great a time as any to finally release an articulated and photorealistic action figure from what some would consider to be his most iconic role.

    I must admit I cancelled my preorder when the other figure was cancelled, but Im tempted with these pics, also with the shark coming out, it should make for a great display.
