The figure arrived in a polythene sealed bag within a blister pack and well protected in a cardboard box. I would be amazed if any damage could be sustained in transit.
Atlantis kickstarter page is a comparison shot with other dwarfs.
In summary then, the Atlantis figure is a soft resin, with good amounts of detail and texture captuted. The scale is advertised 28mm but I would hazard a guess as more like 30mm or even 32mm. It's reasonably easy to prep and assemble. I have made a start on painting, hopefully I will have that finished within a couple of days, well before the kickstarter is finished.
