    I'm a big fan of posable pvc figures. I have the Master Action Brave line, Mega SCF Victory Saber, and a few Revoltechs. I just ordered CM's J-Decker from BBTS and saw Dai Atlas as well. Is it worth the $40?

    I believe $40 is about the same or cheaper than the original CM's price, let alone the secondary market premium, which was over $60 even in Japan. Sounds like a good deal.

    At that price, I might spring for one.

    I have no PVC figurines, and in general I dislike the idea of non-transforming TFs, but being such a sucker for obscure JP characters, I want one too.

    I'm not into PVC's either but I have to admit he looks pretty spiffy.

    I bought one, opened it, and in the process of posing it for the first time, snapped the waist. I have not had the feeling of breaking a brand new TF the first time I touched it since I got the DEV Giftset in '85 for xmas, then proceeded to break Hook's leg as soon before ever TF'ing him correctly. I still tear up just thinking about it.

    I glued it, it looks really cool, but believe me when I tell you this: It is not a Revoltech...don't twist it like one. The joint on the waist (and maybe other places, too) is delicate and undersized.

    Otherwise, it looks awesome.
