    Hey Guys, DX9 was kind enough to send us a sample of Richthofen and Andrew filmed the review last night. I was very impressed with the figure and I think Andrew was as well. Seamless transformation, good stiff joints, diecast in the right places, good details and accessories. Overall, this will be a tough one to beat for Powerglide. Enjoy the video!

    Wait...what?

    Thanks! Puts to bed questions about knee bend and landing gear, in case anyone was still unsure. Looking forward to this guy.

    much better review , i think what was throwing me off is just the way the jet turbines are pegged in at the back of the legs just made it look like the parts had to be moved... i might put a pre order in this weekend got about £25 store credit left with tfs-express as it is a nice looking figure , wish the silver was white tho

    Ehh, diecast forearms != diecast in the right places, imho. That's just more mass for the shoulder joint to hold up in arm-extended poses.

    It is one of the last places I'd usually expect to see die case, especially since in alt mode it will hang folded up from the wing of the plane. Wonder why they put it there?

    My guess is they needed to put it somewhere that would have been on the front end of the alt mode to balance out the thighs (which are on the back half in alt mode).

    Yeah, sure that's fine.... wait... what?!!

    Looking better by the day. My only concern now is that he's a little thin - sunbow Powerglide was a lot chubbier. Not much DX9 could have done to fix that.

    Looking at that lineup, I'd be so happy if DX9 gave us their versions of Seaspray, Cosmos and Gears. I almost bought all of those in the video.
    And damn, that Fanstoys Seaspray is tiny.

    It's ok, I know it's a tough concept to grasp. If only there was a way for people complaining about what reviewers do that they dislike could somehow do it themselves, but all those obstacles in the way like having the toy, pressing record, saying words, uploading the video to Youtubes, clearly are too much to overcome for anyone but the most exceptional our species has created.

    Wow, he looks amazing. One of the best looking 3rd party figures I've seen and I'm actually tempted to pick him up.

    After seeing the review I'm definitely getting it. I really don't like the red paint in the inner thighs. But it's really not noticeable honestly. It's the best Mp Powerglide that's gonna be out. So with that I'm just gonna have to have it.

    Their plastic is top notch and the build quality is great on the DX9 figures I have.

    Is that gray facemask right? I always thought Powerglide was an all white/cream face.

    I'll have to try and look that one up because it looks weird to me. (Still buying it)

    EDIT: I .....guess...it was gray? If it was, it was very faint. It's hard to tell.
