I saw someone do this on Facebook. Old man Marcus Fenix head on Ax Battler. It's a bit small, but I kinda dig it.ImageImage

I have not. They’ve got to be shipping soon, though.

I’m equally intrigued and wary of the lack of visible joints. The ML Raiden has what I assume will be the same for his upper torso around his gi, but the paint on mine started flaking there immediately out of the package.

I'm hoping it's just because it's a prototype. It would suck if they started some hidden joint technology right now. Especially with Ax Battler not having it. If something breaks in there, kiss the figure goodbye.

Interesting...I think this is the first Storm Collectibles release that doesn't have the ball in socket butterfly joints.

Maybe it's a new type of body? Or it's a prototype.

Either way, looks cool.

Yeah, interesting. Either an early prototype or they'll make a skin overlay.

Overlay skin is one thing. But at a more basic level, I don't trust their joints enough to be optimally lubricated at release. So dealing with a complex overlay like that to free up joints is not an appealing proposition. I really hope they don't pursue this route, but I have never seen them go this far in promotional materials without the item being basically done so I think it is exactly what we'll be getting.

If they do this to the eventual 1/10 Hokuto line... I will not be happy.

Cool idea. I don't think action-figure technology is there yet.

If they start to use this overlay skin on this one and on future releases than it's goodbye Storm Collectibles figures.

If they do this only on this figure it's already a sad thing because I wanted to buy this figure. I can't afford to buy an expensive articulated figure, being affraid to articulate it.

Confirmed to have seamless joints by social media posts today.
