    With better faces and proper hands, I'd take that in a heartbeat.

    "The materials feel great. The plastic feels great."

    -- From Bobby's Locke review.

    Don't know what Bobby was smoking.

    I refuse to watch a BBS review but, he actually said this?

    And he said that the QC/engineering is a nightmare.

    Don't get what that has to do with the plastic.

    He said the plastic itself is good.

    But he's still an engineered mess like everyone knows he is.

    I disagree on the plastic.

    Figure still looks the same, to me. Dont know anything could be different.

    Not sure what you are trying to say here. He complained about the build/engineering, but he DID say the plastic was GREAT (starting at minute 29:20 in the video) . No it wasn't, at least not on my friend's copy. And many people complained about it too here.

    No, he said the plastic was GREAT. Start watching his video from minute 29:20.

    I liken it to old, hard cake icing. Not quite hard, not soft. Couple that with some extremely heavy parts, and youve got a perfect nightmare.

    My friend isn't a strong person, but he was able to tear the plastic from the abdomen section with his bare hands. It's not as easy as paper, but XTB certainly used some weird plastic this time around.

    I'm not really sure why people seem to have expected locke to look much different from the 1.0. They only said they were re engineering some trouble spots. Locke was never going to look any different, the test is with the materials and how well it'll hold up in hand

    @ibot How come you guys still aren't painting the abs? I'm pretty sure everyone thinks it would look better (and certainly more accurate) with painted abs.

    I'm going to hold any judgment, until my replacement copy comes in.

    The new pictures are nice, but I want to compare it with my first copy to see the improvements.

    Wish they painted the abs too.

    Eugh.....

    PAINT

    THE

    ABS.

    It's not like it hasn't been requested a million times or isn't accurate.

    I still feel like the open mouth should have been painted in.

    imo, that's really difficult to pull off. Obviously the mouths aren't deep enough for natural light to cast a proper shadow, but if you have the mouth painted and then some directional light on it, it can look really wonky.

    Dont know why they kept the painted face. My neutral face has the nose scuff. Pisses me off.
