Is that yours? If so, how's it feel in hand? Pose well? Materials?
Yep! It's a very heavy PVC piece. He weighs something like 14.8 oz with MP44 holding his gun at 15.1 oz. There's nothing else in the box, no insert, card, poster, nada.
His articulation is limited to his hand (ball joint), forearms (swivel), shoulders (peg), and head (ball joint). There is not much real posing you can do with him. His gun arm forearm is loose, it can just kind of hang there or you can push it all the way up and the friction of the pvc will hold it there. Some future would fix that up. A little soft ratchet would have been nice there. The wing on his back limits the arm rotation.
The hand arm is fine.
You can take both arms off, but they don't just fall off. You can kind of use that to create a very slight outward shoulder movement, shouldn't hurt anything long term.
You can't pull the gun or missile off.
He does look just like he walked off the screen though, the colors and paint used are pretty good. Probably should be in the 15$ range.
He certainly looks the part. I *might* wait for XT's but since I'm mostly display and leave it, I might pick one up.
Looking at this and XTB's, I think XTB's might not give us the full on derp that Autobot-X should emote. He kinda looks happy to be alive.
Mine arrives tomorrow. Can't wait!
Yesterday I picked up one too. Monday he'll join his S2 fellas.
Really looks the part alongside the cartoon s2 guys. Very surprised by how hefty it is too, I thought it'd be really hollow and light.
Mine also has very slight upper thigh rotation but it is hindered by the back of the thigh sculpt.
Half thinking about trying to mod hip and knee joints which will slightly boost his height too.
I got this in today. Ug. Waste of money! Looks nice, but it's rubbery plastic with almost no motion. The arms move up and down, the elbows bend and the head moves a bit.
No waste swivel, no leg movements at all.
Received mine an hour ago from showz. Tonight I will open the parcel and enjoy it. Yes it is a semiposable statue, but it was clear from the reviews. 100% cartoon accuracy... A little gem for me
Sucks that you're not happy with it- but are you truly surprised though? I feel like we knew this going in? Or had you not been watching this thread and just came in to report here after you got it?
Mine arrived today. I like it. Figure has some weight to it mostly because it's a PVC statue. Looks like it stepped out of the toon and it's depressed to be alive. Size is about right for the MP shelf. Would I like more pose-ability? Well, yeah. But it's basically in the hulking Frankenstein pose I'd likely have it in anyway, so we're good. Plus the head's on a ball joint and the head sculpt is perfect. Arm articulation is really really basic, but again, it's essentially a statue so what's there works. I wish they would have added the slight blue for Prowl's headlight part of his chest. That's probably the only paint app missing. Apart from that the only other negative I see is that it's maybe a bit too toony? And maybe the price. I dunno. I'm happy with my purchase.
