Very well said sir. As much as I love Jobby, it is pretty hard to consider his reviews as Legit. Only as you can see he totally exaggerates certain aspects of things to get a laugh. Yeah Gladius ended in the toilet but in reality do you think he would have put it in the toilet? Of course not. it was done for effect and for humor, to make a point. I love watching Jobby stuff but I would never ever in my life ever base a purchase off his opinion. Photos are absolutely stunning. Now if yours was painted as the previous photo.....well that would be amazing. Being involved with both Omni and with Bold Forms, I can tell you with 100% certainty, at times things are just out of your control. I think that what is greatly missunderstood about Spin-out is that Omni was the DESIGNER only. He had nothing to do with the manufacturing or distribution or anything. He made a design and then the design was transferred to someone else who re-engineered it and then manufactured it and distributed it. Omni had zero say in the process once it was handed over and was in the dark about most of everything that happened with it. Absolutely no blame can be held on Omni and he went so far as to try and help the community with fixes and suggestions and was totally jumped on it for that by a fairly ungrateful community. As for the Bold Forms thing, again it was kind of taken out of his control and then finished and distributed with very little say from himself. Which is a real shame as I was working close with the company that did put it out but I did not know about this project until it was actually all finished otherwise I would have given it a few more passes in the tolerance control area. Again another instance where even those within the company don't know exactly what is going on. It happens a lot with 3p, not the best communicators in the world. Ask anyone who has tried to work retail with any of them. It is a total nightmare at times. So again in this instance, it is unfortunate as the end result was a little rushed out the door and it really needed a few more passes before it was released. That being said, I like it as a figure for the most part. I did enjoy the poses and it does a lot of things that are pretty unheard of even for 3p. it is a little over engineered I think but I totally see what the designer was going for with it. I does have some decent shelf presence and while the modes are a challenge, the gun mode is a huge satisfying accomplishment once it is together. I do wish a lot of the posing joints were a little tighter and as I have never done the floor polish trick on anything, it may be of a big help in this case. Spend the money if you have it and you are aware of what you are getting into. I am sure eventually it will go on clearance somewhere but I have not heard of anyone too eager to dump them for next to nothing at this time.
