    Just got my ship notice from Action Robo. I really, really hope the QC on this guy is decent. I don't usually buy blind like this anymore, but i'm a sucker for War Within stuff.

    If I remember correctly you can move his shoulder guards to get a much better range with the shoulder articulation.

    It seems you don't like it that much. Perhaps, you should just save your money and skip it all together. If its on clearance, its already a piece of crap. Do you like projects? Are you planning on customizing it somehow? Did you buy Omnigonix Spinout? He had a massive price reduction at some retailers immediately upon release. It won't be on clearance, I think its gonna be pretty popular and you might miss out. Kuma Style did a pre production sample review in case you missed it. I posted the link below. I hope it gives you a little more insight.

    I think it will be just fine. They are working on two more figures. It might not be available during Thanksgiving either.

    I got mine yesterday, I haven't had to much time to play with it yet, besides the initial transformation. It's a pretty good figure...especially for a first time out company. I'll try to get some real pics tomorrow (tonight for you in the States) and get a bit more in depth on it. Thank goodness for a holiday...I get the next three days off.

    Right, ive seen the reviews, and as you can see in this picture

    You can only get about 45 degrees range of outward movement in the shoulder, and a little less than 90 degrees at the elbow.

    Doesn't make it a stinker by any means, and I'm sure a lot of people wont care, but it just doesn't do it for me.

    Read up some feedbacks from chinese forums. It seems that overall it is ok, but the plastic used is not so good, and something about only a thin tab holding the upper body or something. Maybe those who have it can expand on this.
