I know, I know - some people hate this figure because of the action feature... but having one in hand really opened my eyes. If this is considered "crappy" then we are in for a real treat this year with the ROTS army-builders.
To me, an army builder needs to have two things to make it fun -
- good sculpt
- nice articulation
This one has both... the sculpt is great, and the articulation is awesome... the following points are articulated -
- right shoulder
- left shoulder
- right elbow
- left elbow
- right wrist
- left wrist
- right hip
- left hip
- right knee
- left knee
- right ankle
- left ankle
Plus, 7 of these are ball-jointed. The only thing missing on him is waist articulation...
His left shoulder armor is also removable, and can be replaced with a piece that has the Republic insignia on it...
So, what's not to love about this figure? His action feature does not draw away from the figure in the slightest... plus his joints are all stiff and not loose...
I know some people said they were passing on this one in favor of the AT-TE Gunner #38 and Clone Trooper #41... but this figure is nothing to be ashamed of.
I say enjoy this one, he will blend in well with the others, and why chance the other two being hard to find, and having passed on this one when you had the chance? It's a hell of a lot better than the Clones in the SAGA lineup... and IMO rivals the SA Clone Wars Clone. Plus this guy does have peg holes in his feet.
