All the versions are amazing. I'm going to have to get the variants of both though. The Rublev NEEDS the gold metallic inks and the blue on Solaris will probably be gorgeous in person.

I like the Rublev regular, oddly O_O

That said Solaris is a bit tougher. Generally like the color scheme more on the variant, but regular has the signature jacket. SIGNATURE JACKET 8)

(that said yeah probably gonna try for variant)

Damn I am having a really tough time deciding between the Variant and Regular on the Solaris....I think the regular definitely stands out more but I really want to see how the foil looks with that shade of blue on the variant.

Having the same issue. I've already bought the regular, and know I'm getting the variant for Andrei Rublev, but I'm really tempted to pick up a variant for Solaris as well. Only thing holding me back is the high cost due to exchange rate.

Ugh, so good. The amount of detail on the face and hands of Rublev is staggering. Trying my best to hold off on snagging these as I'm really interested to see what BDP has up it's sleeve with Nico..

I just noticed and wondered...some of the blue ink in the Solaris variant are metallic, too? Looks like it in that one picture.

Got a variant Andrei Rublev. Man the exchange rate is drymounting brutal.

Grabbed a variant of both. Went for Solaris first to make sure it wouldn't sell out on me. Now to email them about combining shipping.
