    Well, I picked up Amazon Jetwing Prime for $60 over the weekend. After my first experience messing with the mold, I have to have APS-01U. It will be mine. I love this thing too much not to get him. Just need to find the right time.

    Question, does ANY version of this mold have thigh swivvles that actually work? And if not, what's hindering it? He is seriously lacking some leg articulation.

    Nah they all have tabs within I think that limit the thighs from swiveling much if at all. You'd probaby have to take the legs apart and dremel a bit.

    You were absolutely right. There's a ridge on the bottom of the mushroom peg that holds it in place. it just needs to be shaved off. All you need is a screwdriver and a knife.

    Sorry for the necrobump. But I just got this guy. Totally amazing. Is there a feedback thread for this guy? I can't seem to find it?

    He is really incredible.

    Of course now I'm wrestling with wether he or KO evasion Prime belongs with my HA/large TF display. He is a little small, but so is Sentinel and it all worked.

    Gaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!

    I love that thigh swivel mod. Awesome.

    I saw all the debate about whether or not the maskless face is better or not.

    Why not have both? Check out my removable battle mask mod!
