It's also a great album.) Hasbro delivered the goods here with a fantastic portrait of the actor Donnie Yen, marvelous-for-Hasbro deco, smart use of soft goods, and a better-than-expected Lightbow accessory. The staff is a staff - two painted silver bits - but the lightbow is pretty gorgeous. It has two grips, both of which he can easily hold. The two bits fold in nicely, and I assume - as I don't have all the reference books - it was made by Baze. According to some early stuff, a gimmick for the movie was that Baze was some sort of gun genius and he designed all sorts of awesome weapons - which is not what I saw in the final cut, so who knows? The deco is sharp and the parts all move nicely - there's even a joint on the front to rotate the tongs around if you're so inclined.
I like this one a ton - I really dug the characters in the movie and it came with everything I could want, with the articulation he needs, and better than expected accessories. Hasbro definitely hit the high notes and delivered a figure that meets my needs. I can't wait to look at Baze! ...who is also here on my desk.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
