    just received this guy, looks good, a little bit bigger than others, but indeed looks good.
    I wonder if anyone made a cape for it before?

    Indeed, and instead of 2 rifles, give him a sword. Maybe add a little mustache on the lips, then we will have Count Dracula. :D

    If this is your first Function X figure from Fansproject? You won't be disappointed.

    They couldn't have named him Mesmos? Mesmeros? Hypnobat? Hypnosys? Cerebral? Vampiros?

    "Look.At.Me"? WTF. Clowns.

    Why not just start pointing at stuff in the office to name things?

    Yes this is my first FP Function figure. I have alot of previous figures from them, but the function lineup. I know if this impresses me i'll be after the weird wolf version of theirs. Plus I have a cool weapon to give my function L figure when he arrives to make him even more dark and one with the spirits! Just in time for Halloween!!

    Ha! Yeah, that's pretty much exactly the reason why I picked him up a year ago. Looked great with a Dr. Wu Scythe, and couldn't resist him with Halloween right there.

    Well hopefully you enjoy your purchase but I'd say Mindwipe is the weakest FP headmaster.

    My ranking would be:
    1. Smart Robin
    2. Quadruple U
    3. Code
    4. Sigma L

    I don't have Crox yet.

    Which version of the Dr. Wu Scythe you have? I'm getting the black one. The re-color of the purple version isnt the right color of Function L.

    Since I dont have any of them yet, so I can't say, but after watching Peaughs review Sigma L and Quadruple U these are top notch.

    I like all four (no Crox yet, I'll order him when I get back from vacation).
    Sigma L doesn't have that "oh snap that's BRILLIANT moment" that the others have at one point or another in the transformation, but he makes up for it in just how beautiful he is.

    I think Sigma L makes up for his lack of engineering brilliance with visual cleverness instead. Details like his high vampire collar and coffin-shaped cockpit, along with all the speaker-like details to represent his hypnotic sonic abilities (details which are technically present, in part, on the G1 toy, but aren't made particularly prominent) are simply wonderful.

    This. It's like they didn't have a fancy engineering gimick and didn't want to force one so all their efforts went into visual design instead.
