    This is the fembots all over again with tabbing and alignement issues on a less nervewrecking but still mildly irritating level
    Apart from that however this guy is lots of fun with a lot of playvalue for the price.

    I have had some interesting experiences with this so far. First time I transformed Jaeger to jet mode it tabbed perfectly, second time it was more akin to the frustration I had with Anubis and I wondered if I imagined the whole thing. This most recent time I took much longer to transform him. Aligned everything slowly and painstakingly, even went forward three steps,m back 2 steps just to check and realign (thighs being straight is a tricky one) and I made sure both elbow joints were definitely at 90 degrees before tabbing the forearm to the shoulder. On this occasion I got excellent tabbing throughout on Jaeger, with just a small gap where the feet should sit flush on the main jet body. I'm happy with it, but then I adored the Fembot mould.

    All the best

    I make it sound worse than it is perhaps, the tabbing is a bit loose but i get the parts in place. He's a really fun toy with lots of posing potential. He's really not limited in that department, his articulatiin just works different from what youre used too.

    The tabbing to the wings is a bit annoying, but not as annoying to me as me breaking that tiny peg that holds the cockpit to the back piece (it could have, and should have been a tab).

    This has got to be the most annoying figure I have played with. The tabs are difficult to get in and the plastic feels off? Unlike other MMC offerings, the plastic on this feels like what 3P used a few years ago. The quality is nowhere near Carnifex or even Spartan/Commotus.
    Sorry, he doesnt feel like a MMC product, just my opinion. I know there are alot of MMC diehards here.

    My theory on this is (since he came out the same time of Carnifex) that he is made of leftover plastics of Carnifex. I certainly feel as if I've been robbed by MMC.

    I really like the looks of this guy, but I cant justify the price tag -especially after all the tabbing and plastic complaints.

    Hopefully He'll get a clearance sale next year or I'll get him 2nd hand because $100-$110 is just more than Im willing to pay.

    I'm certainly no mmc fanboy, but this toy is good value for the price even with the tabbing issues.
    I dont know about carnifex plastic, but he is certainly equal to spartan and the design of his transformation is a whole lot less likely to get you to take of his arms by accident.
    Sure this toy is flawed, but mmc produced a lot worse.

    Just got him for X-Mas and I love him. No stress marks, no loose joints or shoulders... so much fun. I can see how plastic is different on him but it doesn't bother me at all. Can't wait to find my batteries and light this guy up.

    Sometimes you have to look past a figure's flaws, and just allow the evil potential to take over. What a monster.

    I really like this. The more I see of it, the silhouette alone makes him feel more like Black Shadow to me than Hasbro's Overlord-lite.

    He'll make a good stand-in.

    Ah! I would totally buy that! I want an excuse to pick up a figure based on this mould but none of them have caught my eye enough.
