I just got mine, it's nice, but a bit delicate so be careful when playing w/ it. I think you can break easily if you over force things. The hands are hard to change, utilizes pegs and need a lot of force so be careful. I cramped my hand a few times changing his hands.
Come with three guns and a lot of different hands. One of the right hands is in a weird open shape and I haven't figured out how to use it properly. Anyone know??
The bullet chain isn't that good. Also, shade from the helmet make it very difficult to see the red eyes. That is just being nitpicky though.
The glossy black armor on gray matte outfit make it look very similar in tone to Griffon Revoltech.
Overall pretty cool, I like it and would rate it 4 out of 5 stars.

Which one did you get? Several manufacturers made a Jin-Roh or protect gear figure. Oh, wait you are talking about the Revoltech...sorry...delicate? That's weak, main point of a Revoltech would be it's resilience.

We are building a fighting force of extraordinary magnitude. We forge our tradition in the spirits of our ancestors. You have our gratitude.
Yup, talking about the Revo version. I would recommend be careful and wiggle hands in and out. The left arm (with the small shield) feels like it can break if you are pulling the hand too hard, you must be delicate. I also remove antenna each time I chage hands just in case. Can't be too careful as this figure is getting harder to find.
I wonder if different versions of Protect gear will be coming.

hmm i wonder if they are getting a little sloppy, my levithan from full metal panic is find flimsy. the joints hold well but there is a lot of play where they connect parts. making it hard to stand. I was surprised because all revo i have, have really tight joints (and can actually be a pain tring to bend and turn them). Might this be a QC issue?
Very interesting. I've been looking forward to the Panzer Kerberos Revo. I know with some of my revos I've had to do some minor mods. Had to use a pin vise to open up the female end for the hands on my Shin Getter 1.
I did notice some of that floppy-ness on my Shin Getter OVA version though. Yeah, Sort of makes it hard to stand without assistance.
