When mine arrived my flatmate asked me if I'd be keeping it mint in the packaging. "Fuck that" I replied,"it's my toy and I'm playing with it!"

True, Im not planning on selling the figures or so...

Screw it, Im opening it when I get home from work! :P
I might keep the Classic Comic Book version still in his "prison".
I must not Fear. Fear is the mind-killer
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration
I will face my Fear
I will permit it to pass over me and through me
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path
Where the Fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I can afford to buy multiples of each figure so I won't have to worry. :lol:

So I finally open the standard figure.

The only thing that I found which bugs me is the belt, there is gaps between his pouches on my figure. Only two but they are on both sides of his hip so its kinda visible. This might be only on my figure but I think I can live with it.

Another thing, which just is minor, is that I feel his pterosaur wings are a bit to high wich prevents headmovements or is just in the way in certain positions.

Besides that its a great figure! Nice articulation and great sculpt! Love it!

How's the articulation on the elbows? Reviews I've seen say that because the elbow pads the figure can't take advantage of it's double elbow joints.

Havent done so much pose yet, but they are kinda restricting certain elbow articulation.

FINALLY got mine. All undamaged! Opened my standard Death (sod this not damaging the card!) and have been pleasantly surprised by the figure. It's small, but it's 1/12th scale, so what did we expect? The articulation is a little limited - or maybe I'm just being a bit gentle with it for fear of damaging the figure. But what I really do like with it over the Mezco Dredd (which I also really like, by the by) is that the clothing and equipment feels like it's working in scale with the figure. Very well done. Looking forward to seeing what the upcoming Judge Fear is going to be like now!

And, of course, bring on Dredd!

It does indeed and it wasn't expected, as the postman had already delivered a parcel earlier. I may have become a little excited :lol:

I never ordered him, but I kind of wish I had now.

I understand this figure will be more widely distributed, so will be available in the shops, etc... but no doubt that will be a higher price.

Never mind. Nice to know the option is there!

We've got a dedicated thread for that now.
