He has 5 points of articulation, 3 of which are worth anything. The head and arms can move perfectly, the hips cannot. Anyone paying over $100 for this set are going to feel an air of disappointment, and given that it was $300 I'm sure figure completists are fuming over the high barrier of entry to this driver and a lesser C2-B5 than you can get at Disney theme parks. While I'm happy to be complete as loose figures go, and this figure will look good on a shelf - where it will ultimately live - at least my sample is a garbage toy. It could be better and should be better, and hopefully this is just growing pains on a new team or factory. We've had figure/vehicle compatibility issues since 1995, but I'm unable to name any time a figure was bundled with its vehicle from the get-go having this specific issue. The good news is that Hasbro's The Black Series program at Walmart affords them an opportunity to make good with minimal investment and maximal sales potential. I hope they consider it, because I'm not going to be remotely happy until they do.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
