Looks like First 4 Figures has finally taken the wraps off their next release of their Crash Bandicoot series of statues, and as expected, it will be for Dr. Neo Cortex. This design resembles the classic design a lot closer in many areas, such as the head shape, hair, eyes and mouth (not to mention the fact that it lifts straight off from the Warped final boss).

F4F notes that it has been made into a reality thanks to the positive reception for the poll on the character from 2017, stating that after much behind the scene development on it, it is now finally in the physical stage. In addition, there will be a launch live stream happening at 12pm EST on July 21, 2020, with an early bird discount bonus of %10 off. You can sign up for future updates too.
Thanks for the tip, Crash Universe!
