Overall, it's a nice figure but not one that's probably going to do much until later. If Hasbro makes more of the gang, I assume we'll see this figure's popularity skyrocket. Otherwise, it might just slowly get forgotten unless kids get into it. The pose is a little weird for modern Hasbro, as the legs seem to be more action-oriented. Not quite 1995 Power of the Force levels, but the figure does stand out as being a little different from his peers. It wouldn't surprise me if another team worked on him, or if it was outsourced to other designers. I would recommend this figure to you because new space gangster figures are far and few between, and I'm really hoping we'll hear more from his organization. There's room for improvement on his facial hair and whatnot, which I assume we won't see unless we get a 6-inch version of Leech. (Were I a betting man, I assume we wouldn't see that either.) It's the best Tasu Leech action figure money can buy! ...you don't have a lot of options.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
