    Well, just bought it! I am a sucker for animated, and I am curious to the plastic quality.

    I'll do a review when I get it in.

    Is it just me, or is it kinda sad that there is a cheap ko out before the actual toy hits mass retail?

    That doesn't look like good quality. There is dulling of the corners and warping from what I can see. This is what it would look like if I tried to cast a figure at home using rubber molding.

    Far too much humor (or pathos) at the possibility that one might find a knockoff in some store before the same toy is available at regular retail.

    Ok... this is not cool. It's rarely a good sign when a figure gets a KO before the mass retail release.

    Man, how incredibly shitty that would be to walk into Wal-Mart or Target and see something like this on the shelves when they wouldn't allow the real deal yet.

    I doubt these will be carried at retail here in the states, which is where I plan to be getting my Animated toys, so I'm pretty much unaffected by this.
