Like the others, he has about 23 points of articulation. You get the double-neck, the rocker ankles, the swivel wrists, and of course, the quick-draw shoulders. In this case you get two - and I don't much love it. Both hands fling up well together, but I just want one going up - getting both hands on the rifle and going up at the same time is kind of tricky. He's easy to pose though, with arms that click in place as needed and hands that can grip the gun. I like the strange helmet, the jetpack/vest looks good, and the design makes for a good figure. The leg articulation is exceptionally good, and I wish there were vehicles or playsets to use with these guys.
A white figure with a few black and red elements, it's a simple figure and you can see why it's ten bucks. (Actually, it's pretty good for ten bucks.) If you stumble on one I'd say picking one up is a worthwhile pursuit. It's not like you've got a lot of 3 3/4-inch choices these days.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
