    I have. The gun is originally from the guy below.

    My sword doesn't include a handle option so they have reworked things at least somewhat for leader prime.

    I'm glad they included pictures of leader Prime holding it- until I saw that i was skeptical he'd be able to. He still may not be able to hold it well as with the version I have the gun primarily is supported by tabbing into the forearm guard like the DMK swords did.

    It's called Prime 2.0. It's a Chinese KO of DMK 01- but many of the pieces were remanufactured and it's considerably more screen accurate than DMK was. It also has a fantastic paint job.

    It very well may be the most accurate version out there.

    I wouldn't mind a sword to be honest haha. I was gonna wait and see if I ever had $50 to just blow randomly and try out those sets. Would be cool if the seller did that though!

    I had mine like that the past few days. I like the movie accurate look of the FWI-4, but this jetpack and guns really is impressive and imposing in person.

    Yeah, the guy is huge with jet pack and guns on. I find myself walking through doors sideways.

    Just got my APS-01U tonight. Wow, what a package! Large and beautiful, I love the slide-out cover. Makes a nice windowed-box display without any flaps getting in the way. Kinda wish Takara MP packaging had something similar.

    The dark and silver metallic paint contrast well together, and the subtle gold details and tinted windows complete the look. If I didn't know about the pin-striping, I wouldn't even miss them.

    The only parts that I feel the need to paint over are the bare-plastic smokestacks. A little chrome paint should look nice.

    Normally, I'd just take the toy out of the box, but for such an expensive piece, I think it can stay mint-in-box for a while longer :)

    Yes, the dull grey smoke stacks are definitely out of place, as overall the piece is very detailed with intricate paint apps. Its my only complaint with the figure. I think you can buy chrome sleeves to cover them, if you do not want to paint it.

    I opened mine up, as you can see, and I collect a lot of MISB (mainly Takara MP). He has so many accessories. You just don't feel it without opening him and gearing him up.
