Picked this figure up yesterday and it completely blew me away. I was actually shocked by how nice it is in comparison to nearly every other Shockwave released for this series. It came with a piece of the build-a-figure, but I have no intention of buying the rest of the series to finish it, so it went into a parts bin. Pros: -Articulation is top notch, including head swivel, antenna movement, full shoulder movement, 90-degree elbows, wrist swivels, waist swivel, movable skirt armor, full hip movement, well over 90-degree knees, swivels at the knees and ball-jointed ankles. -Pretty great design, and they finally ditched that scowly-eye nonsense. -Solid feeling and durable. -Very nice paint apps. -Blast effect is pretty great. Cons: -Alt mode is awful. Seriously, it's the figure doing a crab walk. That's it. -Pretty small. He stands eye level with Siege Barricade. -The head should have better range of motion, but that's probably more of a nitpick than a negative. Overall, I truly like this figure.
