You know you have to build this. It's shown that this is the 2nd issue...and is says "stronger" plastic than the first but I don't buy it. One thing I have learned is that all plastic on things with joints will deteriorate and break with time...basically making it worthless. It's why I've been in the process of selling off all my jointed figures. All that plastic chemically breaks down and becomes brittle. They need metal joints and a flexable pvc to be more secure. But even pvc breaks down after time. Kind of a loose-loose deal. Can't wait to see all the bitching on the $200+ Hot Toys using rubber life like skin a few years from now. The only thing I've even seen that ages well has been vinyl molded figures. Bullmark, Marusan, Billiken etc. Somtimes they crack but can be easily repaired.
This has obviously caused you agony in the past. I can visualize you bringing parts of the model together, looking through your exacto magnifier glass, shaking as they near insertion. Then they break with too much pressure. Followed by a torrent of Gorham profanity. And then the drinks. Always the drinks.
Just saying.....Chinese plastic isn't worth shit people. Hasn't been for the last 4 decades. When they make a metal one...I'm in.
I was going to post this very thing yesterday, but didn't get around to it. Pretty amazing little figure.
Ronnie. This sort of news is very nerd viral. Next thing you know, this figure is on the cubicle wall next to yours at work. Knowledge gained from when I could get work that didn't involve straining my back.
