I heard many people and reviewer hyping these, but I am not really impressed. The SHF Kun-Body is equally articulated (aside from eyes). The combo of good articulation and aesthetic design - maybe. The joints are really well integrated - I have to give him that.
Don't get me wrong, I like him - he reminds me a lot of Sonny from "I Robot", I like the great articulation range ... but so many people were all like "oh my god this is such a great figure" ... and for me it's just a semi-typical import figure.
And here it is - 1/12 synthetic human. Skipped on him first, but after the encounter with Fallout Series, Wasteland Warriors on Wacken and Ashley Wood figures I slowly start to rediscover my passions and tendencies. I remembered how much I enjoyed Bionicles, I remembered how much I like the "I, Robot" movie ... how much I like any kind of dystopia and cyberpunk stuff ... all of that was always there, but somehow I never really confronted that part of me? Heck, that sounds like a dude who discovers his gay-tendencies in his forties :D
Anyways, because I was late on getting him (after the reissue), I payed 100$ :-/
