    I wonder why the left arm looks sorta "off" on all the figures... kinda looks like they just shot one picture, and did the recoloring in photoshop.

    I think I'd like this a lot more if it was smaller...it's larger than standard, right?

    way too big for a sculpt that doesn't bowl me over...it's cool, but way, way too big...

    i dont know for sure, im not sure who is making this figure, but i would guess keith is right - they might have taken a photo of the sculpt (which would have the joints held together by pins, hence the gap) and recolored it digitally, to generate the promo graphics.

    i would guess the arm would be a solid joint on a production version.

    I'm loving this. Could definitely have more articulation (though the sculpt, I guess, doesn't make any obvious allowances for 'more'...the heart wants what it wants) but it's super rad. Big, you say?

    I too am wondering how big.

    Dang, thought he was standing next to something for comparison.
    But here's a pic I found on KT's flickr:

    not a big fan of this. looks very western, smooth lines, nothing really pops for me. just another generic furred beast w/ one eye and shitty joints. ...waist articulation? hello KRap.

    Is it supposed to be the space invader on the side of the original arcade cabinet? I know its not dead to rights but thats the first thing I thought of when I saw it.

    The promo graphic says its an X-Plus release (but for some reason they put X-Plus in Katakana...). Definitely a departure for those guys from their normal stuff!

    hmmm. After seeing this again. I think the arms jointed are going to be like the initial image. They seem off a little. It wouldn't surprise me if you could see the seam.

    Hmmm, I guess I see the Space Invaders reference, but I never woulda thought of it. To me those guys were made up of electricity - these figures look like they're furry.

    Not my thing, especially with the neon colours.
    I like bright paint, but when done subtly or as highlights for the most part.

    I like the Butanohana Kurozaru much more.

    I'd like this if it was $12.99 and hanging on a rack in Target - it would certainly brigthen up my day to see it there - but for the likely $80 price tag on this guy, probably not. Maybe some creative paint apps would make it pop more?
