Thanks. Here's my brief impression. Please forgive me if this is little redundant..
Pros: The sculp is detailed and crisp. Amazing shiny black paint app paired with perfect chrome app and nice clear green detail really add to the quality of the figure. He looks really classy in black. It has real neck! I really appreciate nice industrial look to it's rear view.
Cons: I immediately notice the horrible "monkey arms syndrom..." By lazy design, he can't hold hold firearm too well...as in straight and steady position I mean. Now I'm really gonna nit pick. Here's the love. The thighs really should have been painted. The unpainted Thighs also lacks in crispiness in sculpt detail like other parts.. Takara you should have implemented light piping in his head...What were you thinking? Takara, please bring back the diecast you cheapies! It def need more diecast than just a token jesture on his feet...
I have love and hate relationship with Takara. The cons are meant as a constructive customer feed back and I hope Takara can at least take it as such. At $120 shipped from AmiAmi, looking at current Japanese collectable robot market, I say he's worth that much. But Is he superior to MP 01? IMHO, I would save 01 in a house fire if I had to choose between the two...01 with all the light, moving pistons and abundant diecast, it's still the king of MP in my book.
