    I know, but I think the vid was meant to excite us and instead it just bummed me out a bit. I’d be much more excited to see the boxes being put into bigger boxes to ship to retailers!

    This is the first overall negative thing I've read about firage. What were the issues?

    I love mine, but I’ll admit the plastic quality seems dubious and he’s a bit fiddly and complex for his size. However I don’t see either of those things as issues that El Cid would have, so as a Firage owner I’m pleased and excited for their stuff.

    IMO, that kind of plastic works better for larger figures, trying to use it in really small figires could cause problems.

    I can't make out his eyes at all from the attached picture...

    They should've made Nemesis Prime's face look that scary in TLK. Nothing gives me nightmares anymore, but this toy's face could.

    Thanks for the clarification.

    He looks great and only small nit pick is the colour of his feet...kinda plasticky grey...hope it is just the lighting.

    After watching BFS' review of Firage this morning (I agree with the person who canceled their PO and was disappointed by the figure) I'm highly skeptical that this guy will deliver. Waiting on a review before purchasing.
