    I've found that lowering the shoulders and lower the hip joints (to bring the legs closer together), gives him more of the passive character he is known for rather than military strong man look:

    Not too horrible, but I didn't enjoy the transformation :p . That said, I think he'd be ok around the $50-75 mark. This price I paid...nah, not really ;)

    I’m very much enjoying mine, especially after tweaking a few joints. It’s a very solid figure overall and fun to pose. I still feel like I would have preferred him a bit smaller, but I don’t hold that against him. Very glad to have one.

    Has anyone attempted to design and 3D print a new handle for the included rifle? I’m really liking the figure a lot overall, but the fact that his weapon can’t plug into his hand is an incredibly amateur oversight.

    Aside from just posting a photo, has anyone done a tutorial on how to turn him into any decent sort of boombox?

    It really is ridiculous that with such a big slot in the palm they didn't tab the handle. It should be easy to print a sleeve with a tab or a new handle all together.

    @cj37a @Black Shuck looks less like dry brushing and instead using stippling/sponge effect.

    I think it needs more weathering not less, a more detailed leg, and new hands for holding the weapon.

    This thangs cheap. Imma buy it.

    That faceplate paint is trash, though. Silver all the way.
