Packaging - **1/2
The boxes are fairly well designed, since you can actually remove the
vehicle with very little damage. You can see the vehicle well, along
with the figure, and you can get a good idea of what detail there is.
Unfortunately, there is no picture on the
box of the complete vehicle or anything else in the line. There's no
text, and the graphics are fairly plain.
Sculpt (Details) - ****
The sculpting on the included figure is fairly nice, particularly the
helmet. It's not removable, but the detail is excellent, and the
figure is fairly nice overall. They also seem to have corrected the
earlier 'size' problem - this figure is about the same size as the carded
figures, unlike earlier figures that came with the vehicles.
detail on the copter is fantastic! The interior has tons of dials
and controls, with excellent attention paid, particularly for this scale.
four doors open and close smoothly, both the front and back rotors turn
easily but not loosely, and the turret gun in front moves up and down.
glass is clean of glue and scratches, and looks terrific. Overall,
the detail on this chopper is marvelous.
Articulation - ***
I'm not a big fan of these angle cut joints, but they do serve their
purpose. He can stand on his own, and can sit in the vehicle,
although it's a bit tough getting him in and out.
There isn't much in terms of accessories, unless you include the figure as
one. That's what I've done here, since he's not really what you're
buying this for, but is an extra.
I said above, his sculpt is fairly decent, and although I'm not thrilled
with this style of joints, at least he can stand and sit on his own.
also comes with a small stand, but he doesn't really need it. A
couple small accessories for him would have been nice, but considering how
much you're getting with the great detail on the copter, I can't complain.
is also a base for the helicopter itself, which uses two screws to hold it
in place. It looks good, and although it's not necessary, works well
