Hopefully this follows the usual pattern of release 1 figure, solicit another.

He looks great. Though part of me wishes they’d change the shoulder set up, where the torso is like a vest. I’ve no need for the shoulders to drop down like the hips, I do need them to be able to shrug.

I got my Heavy Mando Gunner and he's... expensive. :|

If he has drop down hips, mine are stuck. If he doesn't have drop down hips, his leg articulation is nearly non-existent. If you try to store the gun on his backpack, it falls off as soon as you try to repose the figure. The knife is fall-on-the-floor loose in his hand. Wrist pegs are short and limit articulation. Working with this ankle pivot is the kind of battle Homer wrote about. I suppose the paint is nice. I am really underwhelmed by this fig.

Amazon Japan has a 40% discount on Paz Vizsla.



The one major benefit of regular releases in comparison to exclusives.

7255 yen + 1169 for shipping


Also, the Armorer is set to release March 23 so expect in hand pictures soon.

I don't post often here anymore...and when I do it's not to be nice with Tamashii....But Holy Cow....This Mando Gunner [email protected]#$ sucks!
I hope it has drop down hips or else it's [email protected]#$ shit.

Here...I said it...sorry guys.

I'm not an Hasbro apologist, far from it, but these past few figures they've been doing, are really good for the price point....I can't justify paying 70€ for a piece of crap with no articulation and with an inaccurate sculpt.

It’s not drop down, you’ll break if you try it.
The only thing that really bothered me on the Heavy was the ankle range. Everything else was pretty good on my copy.

Collecting this line is frustrating because of how little product they put out. I was hoping they'd throw up 2 new POs as Heavy Mando and Armorer came out, but zilch.

I'd like to see at the very least Mando Ahsoka and Bo-Katan... and season 2 Din, Cobb Vanth, Boba Fett, Gideon, the list goes on.

My Armorer arrived today. One of the line’s best releases, hands down. Awesome accessories, even includes a hand for ep.1 Mando to hold beskar container. Now they need to announce some new figures...

Yeah, that Armorer looks fan-freaking-tastic.

Now give us Ahsoka, Boba, season 2 Din, Darktroopers...I’ll even take Bandai upgrades of BS figures like Gideon. I just need more Mando Figuarts.

I’m a Luke fanboy, so I’d even take a 2.0 RotJ Luke with better articulation and maybe the flap on the shirt after he gets zapped, and the tunic and cape from Jabba’s palace. It could double as a Mandalorian Luke.

I think they'd still have trouble surpassing or even matching that ROTJ Luke. It's one of the best figures I own, even all these years later.
