Got mine today, I'll get the bad stuff out of the way first:
same stress marks on the ankles and bent fin as Tekering.
Hinge for the folding shoulder panel is broken off on one side.
Inside of front landing bay door has some kind of brown smear on it.
Hands are straight up awful with removable fingers that don't stay on and when they ARE on the arm panels can't close fully (please tell me I'm doing something wrong)
The tiny hinged panels with a peg & hole that hold the legs together in fighter mode seem kind of poorly designed and I don't trust them to withstand much use.
The ratchet on the right 'boob' has too much play between teeth which can make for a 'saggy boob' at times.
Plastic has that cheap almost polystyrene quality that doesn't instill confidence in a long life.
Now, good stuff:
It looks amazing in all modes. Even the finish, while not as premium as Arcadia or Bandai, looks pretty nice when its on the shelf.
Fighter mode DOES hold together snugly enough for swooshing and barrel rolls, although it could still be improved
Articulation is plentiful and even the head has a wide range of motion. Joints all feel robust enough where I have no worry about them failing.
Size is pretty much perfect, not to small and not too big.
Paint is all very clean and neatly applied
Transformation isn't muddled by any kind of attempt to try something new, it's tried and true Legioss transformation which means its simple and it works
Despite what feels like cheap plastic, it does manage to feel solid enough in robot mode to invite handling and posing.
Verdict? I'm happy with it overall. I was expecting much worse, and of course I would like it to be on an upper tier like Arcadia and Bandai toys but as Tekering said, it really is the best Legioss toy we've gotten so far (not saying much, I know). That said, I would not recommend it AT ALL to the casual connoisseur. If you have a mild interest, move along or wait for a super clearance sale. If you desperately love the Legioss and are able to look past the shortcomings, I think you can find some satisfaction here.
