Enterbay's 24 series, Jack Bauer 1/6th scale figure

When i first got wind of Enterbay doing a 24 series figure, i didn't pay much attention to it till i saw the prototype sculpts being released.
I seldom watch television, but i do know enough to know that 24 was a rather good tv series to catch though i couldn't afford the time to catch each season and episode. There're 7 seasons now.
Alwasy did admire Kiefer's acting capabilities. Furthermore with enterbay's reputation, rising up since their bruce lee figures, they are soon IMHO, going to take over Hot Toys as the leading 1/6th scale figure toy makers. Whilst competition might be good for us to choose between brands, i highly doubt the price will lower anytime soon though between both companies.
i've just got hyped up back onto this Enterbay train for 24, though i'm still considering whether to jump on the preorder, due to both financial resources and on the structure/material used for the headsculpt.
as yet i'm trying to avoid rubber being used on figures, and since enterbay uses a realistic skin technology on their headsculpts i'm wondering if they're using some form of rubber or soft plastic which may degrade in the weather here. (jay chou from enterbay is one example). That aside, the magnetic attachments and removal of the head to the hair and adjustable eyeballs somewhat turn of off for i do prefer hot toy's solid headsculpts so far.
furthermore i'm saving up and cutting down preorders till i see the TERMINATOR SALVATION LINE. recently dropped off arnold from Predator 1 preorder to focus on terminator. So if anyone has any comments or advice on enterbay? do discuss!
