It is life size. It seems a little smaller (maybe 1-2cm) than the average european (my) hand, but not that noticeable. Pros: It is well formed and acurately detailed. Cons: Difficult to articulate the joints. Moving the fingers or wrist joints to any position is difficult and does not allow realistic poses easily.
It is worth buying? A resounding yes. I have seen a lot of similar hands at ridiclulous prices.
