    I don't pose my figures in dynamic poses, extra clicks in his shoulders mean very little to me. My Magnus to me is perfect as is, I'm not into taking my expensive collectables apart just for the sake of an extra click. I like MP-22 as he is. Yeah, thegun may be a bit short, but screw it.

    Couldn't resist. I do want the ability to have Magnus open his chest.

    Really looking forward to this, Reprolabels and KFC hands...

    I wonder is it worth also getting the Shadow Fisher LED eyes and Matrix for MP-10?

    I took my Magnus shoulder apart to see how this works, since I couldn't make any sense of that pictures

    The only difference between the blue stock piece pictured and the white piece provided in this set is that it has an opening molded in so you can detach the white hinge joint, swing the hinge arm out, and then using the EXISTING ratchet shoulder joint, move more without hitting that shoulder socket.

    Its not technically a new shoulder joint, its a new shoulder joint housing that is provided

    I am less impressed now, although I want the gun extension

    fortunately this is pretty inexpensive

    The gun extention alone is worth it, may well get this.

    I ordered mine, but did so with another thing coming out soon. Will have a review up whenever it shows up. Hope the shoulder parts are well done.

    u could replicate the effect by cutting a similar opening in the existing shoulder socket, but i dont know if that affects structural integrity

    maybe thats why they're going die cast

    The new parts are the internal shoulder housing that sits around the actual ratchet joint mechanism itself so yeah they might simply have made identical pieces with a wider space for the ratchet joint to move.

    Which really just begs the question why Takara didn't do the same. So I'm looking forward to seeing exactly how they're different and have been able to get what seems to be an entire extra ratchet click of motion out of them.

    The only visible addition is an opening. That's it.. The set doesn't give u a new ratcheting joint or an thing, just gun and shoulder kit
